The star received her first Tony Award during Sunday evening’s ceremony when A Strange Loop–which she produces–won best musical. That award was the final trophy she needed to complete her EGOT, now being able to say she’s won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.

This achievement has been a long time coming for Hudson, who won her first award of the bunch when she got an Oscar for her role in 2007’s Dreamgirls. The American Idol alum is also a two-time Grammy winner, having gotten her first award for her 2009 self-titled album.
Hudson went on to win a Daytime Emmy for the animated short Baba Yaga last year, which she co-produced and lent her voice to.
