Jennifer Hudson And Quinta Brunson Added To People’s ‘People Of The Year’ Honorees

The actresses had a fantastic year with Brunson winning an Emmy and Hudson becoming an EGOT recipient.

Quinta Brunson and Jennifer Hudson will be honored alongside Matthew McConaughey and Mila Kunis on People’s 2022 “People Of The Year” list.

Penned by the outlet’s editor-in-chief Wendy Naugle, the writer shares why the publication has decided to honor these two, which includes their consistent efforts in creating a platform for all and bridging generational divides.

“Having the same laugh is really important to me. I think it's spiritual, I think it's healing," Brunson told the publication.

“To bring people together for a moment of joy? What a gift.”

Hudson hopes her talk show will “create a platform for everyone, just so we all have a place to feel included.”

Both ladies have had an amazing year thus far with Brunson winning an Emmy Award for Abbott Elementary for “Outstanding Writing For A Comedy Series” while Hudson became the 17th EGOT recipient and serves as the second Black woman to become an EGOT winner following Whoopi Goldberg.

Congratulations ladies!
