Barack Obama wins Emmy for narrating Netflix’s ‘Our Great National Parks’

Former US President Barack Obama has been recognised for his work in Netflix’s ‘Our Great National Parks’ at the 74th Creative Arts Emmy Awards. His fellow nominees included Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, David Attenborough and Lupita Nyong’o.

The five-part series takes a deep dive into major national parks and open spaces from across the globe, highlighting their beauty, usefulness and the importance of preserving them. It has been produced by Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company, ‘Higher Ground’.

Barack Obama becomes the second President to bag the award after Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was presented a special Emmy Award in 1956.

The former President previously raked in two Grammy Awards for his audiobook on two of his memoirs, ‘The Audacity of Hope’ and ‘A Promised Land’. Meanwhile, Michelle Obama too won a Grammy for her audiobook in 2020.
