Beyoncé Lemonade loses at Emmys

Posted on

Beyoncé may have put out our favorite record of the year so far, but her visual album, Lemonade, which premiered on HBO in April and was scooped up awards like Video of the Year, Best Female Video, and Breakthrough Long Form Video at the VMAs last month, was blanked at the Creative Arts Emmys on Sunday.

Lemonade lost in the Outstanding Variety Special category, where it was nominated alongside Amy Schumer’s Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo, Adele’s televised special, Adele Live From New York City, and James Corden’s The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Prime Time Special, which ultimately won the Emmy.

Corden and The Late Late Show had already won Outstanding Interactive Program at Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmys, but the Carpool Karaoke special landed them their second award of the weekend.

Beyoncé’s Lemonade was also nominated for Outstanding Production Design for a Variety, Nonfiction Event or Award Special, and Outstanding Picture Editing for Variety Programming. The special lost in those categories to Portlandia, and Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, respectively.

On Sunday, Beyoncé will have one more trophy to win or lose: Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special, which will be handed out during the Emmys broadcast.

CORRECTION: This post initially stated Lemonade lost in the Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special category.
