Jennifer Hudson is all that glitters on the red carpet!

The singer, actress, talk show host and mom (not to mention EGOT winner) arrived at the 2024 Daytime Emmy Awards on June 7 in Los Angeles wearing a look that radiated confidence.

Hudson, 42, could be seen walking the carpet with a plunging gown that featured multi-colored floral embellishments. The flowers, which were pink, purple and yellow, covered the floor-length dress. The actress accessorized her look with silver rings and wore her hair in a braided bun.

The Jennifer Hudson Show is nominated for four Daytime Emmys: lighting direction, outstanding live sound mixing and sound editing, costume design/styling and daytime talk show series. She's up against The Kelly Clarkson Show, The Tamron Hall Show, Turning the Tables with Robin Roberts and The View in the latter category.

"It's a dream," Hudson told PEOPLE while walking the red carpet. "I feel like we were just here last year. But to be back again? It feels like family and it's just an honor to be here, just to be recognized and acknowledged and in a room with so much talent and television."

Hudson, already a Daytime Emmy winner for her animated short Baba Yaga (which she co-produced and lent her voice to) was also nominated in this category in 2023. Although she was beat out by Kelly Clarkson, Hudson shined bright in a rose gold Dreamgirls-level sequin gown and a dazzling necklace to match.

In her PEOPLE 2022 People of the Year cover story, Hudson opened up ho -

w she’s navigated her journey of being a daytime talk show host since the show started in September 2022.

“I can't say I knew what to expect. I'm still learning as I go. I think seeing how huge of a machine it is, how many departments it has, meeting the crew and the staff," she said. "I've been a guest on a show like this, but to come in from a host perspective and see the entire production, I think that's the most surprising part.”

She also reflected on the newly appointed EGOT title she earned that year. In addition to her Daytime Emmy, Hudson has won an Oscar for Dreamgirls, a Grammy in 2009 for best R&B album (her first of two) and a Tony for coproducing A Strange Loop, making her the 17th person — and youngest female — to achieve EGOT status.

“I'm still figuring that out," Hudson told PEOPLE. “It's something, obviously, that I aspired to, but it takes a long time to process. It puts me in a better position to be able to lend more support. But I feel the same way about being a talk show host, to create a platform for everyone, just so we all have a place to feel included, and using my position and impact to be able to just continue to bring everyone together."

The 2024 Daytime Emmy Awards will air on the CBS Television Network and is available to stream live and on-demand on Paramount+.
