He could now be honored for this. As he got a nod under the category of Outstanding Narrator for the Netflix docuseries. Yes, Barack is nominated for an Emmy Award!
As reported by various media reports, including People, the father of two was nominated for one of the coveted awards in the “Outstanding Storyteller” category.

It’s Barack’s first Emmy nomination, but it wouldn’t be entertainment’s top honor. He has been nominated three times for a Grammy Award for Best Spoken Album. He was able to take the statue home with him twice, in 2006 for his read autobiography “Dreams from My Father” and in 2008 for “The Audacity of Hope”.
