Former President Barack Obama received an Emmy Award on Saturday for his narration of a documentary series about national parks.

Obama was named best narrator for the Netflix documentary series “Our Great National Parks.”

Higher Ground,” a production firm launched in 2018 by Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, is producing the five-part series, which will spotlight national parks from around the world.

The ex-Democratic president knocked out numerous big-name nominees for the honour awarded at the Creative Arts Emmys, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, David Attenborough and Lupita Nyong’o.

Obama is now one of two presidents who have won an Emmy, joining former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. In 1956, Eisenhower earned a special Emmy Award.

After earning the honour Saturday night, the 44th president is halfway to an EGOT, the distinction of winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. He has previously received two Grammy Awards.

All four main entertainment awards in the United States have been won by 17 different people.

Obama had already received two Grammy Awards for his audiobook readings of two of his autobiographies.
