After receiving an Emmy, Barack Obama is now halfway to earning the EGOT.

On Saturday, Barack Obama received an Emmy for narrating the Netflix documentary "Our Great National Parks."

The former president won the Emmy for "Our Great National Parks" over David Attenborough, Lupita Nyong'o, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and W. Kamau Bell.

Obama becomes the second US president in history to get an Emmy thanks to the honor.

Former President Dwight Eisenhower was awarded the honorary "Governors Award" in 1956.

Obama is also getting closer to the coveted EGOT title, which is an abbreviation for having won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony.

Only 17 persons have succeeded at this to this point.

The audio book readings of Obama's memoirs, "The Audacity of Hope" and "A Promised Land," were nominated for two Grammy Awards in the "Best Spoken Word Album" category.

To become an EGOT, he would still need to win an Oscar and a Tony.
