    Barack Obama bags an Emmy

    For his narration of “Our Great National Parks,” a Netflix documentary series about national parks, former president Barack Obama received an Emmy on Saturday.

    Following Dwight Eisenhower, who received a special Emmy award in 1956, Obama became the second president to get an Emmy when the outstanding narration award was announced at the Creative Arts Emmys Awards event.

    Higher Ground Productions, a production firm started by Barack and Michelle Obama, produced the docuseries. Obama is halfway to achieving the prestigious EGOT because the former commander-in-chief has already amassed laurels in the entertainment industry. He earned two Grammy awards for reading his audiobooks. Only 17 people, including John Legend and Jennifer Hudson, have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony, as indicated by the acronym.

    The former first lady received a Grammy award in 2020 for reading her memoir “Becoming” aloud.

    The Documentary 

    The documentary series highlights the former president’s entry into the media after leaving office. With the release of his Spotify playlists and a partnership with Netflix agreement, Barack Obama has entered the culture niche of the country. In the last year,  he has also spoken out on a number of political matters, such as the pandemic response of the late President Donald Trump and the value of democracy along with many other issues.

    Barack Obama has contributed to the present political environment as the midterm elections approach and Democrats fight to keep control of both chambers. According to Axios, he will give a speech at a fundraiser held by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee on September 8. He was the featured performer at a Martha’s Vineyard fundraiser for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee last week.

    After Trump rejected to host the former president, Biden will welcome Obama back to the White House on Wednesday for the customary unveiling of his presidential picture.
