Another year, another complete snub for Beyoncé at the Emmy Awards. Last night, Beyoncé and Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé went 0-6, forcing Beyonce to leave another Emmy Awards empty-handed.
Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé was nominated for six Creative Arts Awards: Outstanding Variety Special (pre-recorded), Outstanding Costumes for a Variety, Nonfiction, or Reality Programming, Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special, Outstanding Music Direction and Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special. Homecoming was an amazing behind-the-scenes look at Beyoncé’s 2018 Coachella performance. The documentary was nuanced, intimate and awe-inspiring.
They Beyhive was up in arms on Twitter Saturday night as the awards were being handed out to everyone except her. The biggest uproar came from Homecoming losing Best Variety Special (pre-recorded) to James Corden’s CBS Primetime special Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Meets McCartney, winning for a third year in a row. People were appalled when she lost to a dashboard camera sing-a-long series.
Beyoncé also lost to Thom Zimny Springsteen on Broadway for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special, lost in Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special to Hannah Gadsby for Nanette and Alex Lacamoire for Fosse/Verdon for Outstanding Music Direction. Beyoncé was also nominated for her 2016 HBO special Lemonade, which was also snubbed by the Television Academy.
