Jennifer’s latest professional news comes after she became the 17th person in showbiz history to win an EGOT – an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony.

She hit the milestone on Sunday night when she won a Tony as producer of best music winner A Strange Loop.

On Wednesday, Jennifer shared footage of herself celebrating her Tony win, possibly backstage at Radio City Music Hall, where the awards were presented.

Jennifer toasted in a private room after her triumph, barefoot but still wearing the crystal-embellished Pamela Roland dress she modeled on stage.

“Like I said when I won the Oscar, look what God can do,” Jennifer said as she raised her glass. “Well, he did it again!”

She won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in the 2006 film Dreamgirls, whose cast included Beyonce and Jamie Foxx.

Based on a Broadway show from the 1980s, the film starred Jennifer as Effie Brown, a singer loosely inspired by Florence Ballard of the Supremes.

Two years after her Oscar, she won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Album for her first studio release, Jennifer Hudson.
