Jennifer Hudson Celebrates Upcoming Talk Show: ‘I Hope My Fans Experience a Good Time’

By Movieguide® Contributor

EGOT-winner Jennifer Hudson recently announced a brand new project: her own talk show!

Hudson recently gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at THE JENNIFER HUDSON SHOW in a new video. 

“This is the first day of my show. I’m still getting used to saying that,” she shared. “I’m going to show you how it all happens. Camera man, tilt down,” she added, showing off her pink slippers. 

The Movieguide® Grace Prize® award winner continued, “I hope my fans experience a good time,” she shares. “I hope they discover their superpower, and I hope they feel on top of the world before they leave THE JENNIFER HUDSON SHOW. Let’s go live life, baby.”

The talk show is set to premiere September 12 and will feature celebrity interviews, topical stories, and musical performances. 

As a host, Hudson can relate to many of her guests, as she’s won Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards.

Movieguide® previously reported on Hudson’s EGOT win:

Actress Jennifer Hudson has a lot to celebrate! 

At this year’s Tony Awards, Hudson earned a Tony Award after A STRANGE LOOP, a show she served as producer on, won Best Musical. This award also pushed Hudson to EGOT status!

EGOT, which stands for Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony, is seen as a crowning achievement in the entertainment industry. 

Movieguide® awarded Hudson the Grace Prize® for her performance as Aretha Franklin in RESPECT in 2021.

Hudson got her start towards EGOT status in 2007, when she won Best Supporting Actress for her role in DREAMGIRLS.

Hudson has two Grammy awards; one for her 2009 album Jennifer Hudson, and one for the soundtrack of the 2017 revival of The Color Purple. 

The actress scored an Emmy last year for BABA YAGA, where she served as a producer and did some voice acting on the show. 

Other stars who have achieved EGOT status include big names like Audrey Hepburn, Mel Brooks, Whoopi Goldberg, and John Legend.
