Former President Barack Obama is an Emmy winner.

Obama won in the "Best Narrator" category of the Creative Arts Emmys. The former president narrated the Netflix documentary series, “Our Great National Parks.”

Obama is reportedly the second president to win an Emmy.

Other notable winners from the night included Adele, Eminem, and the late Chadwick Boseman.

Adele earned an Emmy for her CBS special, "Adele: One Night Only."
