Former President Barack Obama has secured his second Emmy win, triumphing in the category of outstanding narrator for his role in “Working: What We Do All Day.”

Facing tough competition from renowned voices such as Morgan Freeman, Mahershala Ali, Angela Bassett, and Pedro Pascal, Obama emerged victorious.

This win follows his previous Emmy award in the same category for his contribution to Netflix’s documentary series “Our Great National Parks” last year, according to uInterview.

“Working: What We Do All Day” is a four-part docuseries on Netflix produced by Higher Ground, the production company led by Barack and Michelle Obama.

The series explored the work lives and challenges of individuals in the technology, hospitality, and home care industries. Through interviews with workers, the former president and the filmmakers highlighted the interconnectedness of humanity and the significance of everyone’s contribution to a larger collective.

Obama, in addition to his recent Emmy win, has previously secured two Grammy Awards. The former president won the best-spoken-word album category in 2006 for narrating his audiobook “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.”

He repeated this success in 2008 with another Grammy in the same category for “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.”
