The former first lady and secretary of state had already won a Grammy, so she’s an Oscar and Tony shy of an EGOT sort of thing. Not bad for a political giant who was also a senator and a 2016 Democratic presidential candidate.
Clinton and her daughter Chelsea Clinton were part of a team that won the Emmy for best political and government documentary announced at the News & Documentary Emmy Awards in New York.
The two produced the Netflix documentary “In Her Hands” along with several others, making them “eligible for a statue,” an official told the Hollywood Reporter.
The film follows Zarifa Ghafari, who at age 26 became the youngest female mayor in Afghanistan’s history. She served during turbulent times before the Taliban took back the country.
“As Western forces withdraw, Afghanistan’s youngest mayor braves mortal danger to lead a fight for the education of the next generation of Afghans,” reads the Netflix synopsis.
The film, directed by Tamana Ayazi and Marcel Mettelsiefen, was released last fall to mixed reviews.
“So proud to be part of the ‘In Her Hands’ team,” Chelsea Clinton tweeted Friday.
Hillary Clinton hadn’t mentioned the Emmy win on X or Instagram Friday afternoon, hours after death of former Senate colleague Dianne Feinstein was announced.
She won her Grammy for Best Spoken or Non-Musical Album for “It Takes A Village” in 1997.
