All of this winnin’! Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ Named Peabody Award Winner
Like fine wine, Beyoncé just gets better with time. Queen Bey has recently been honored with the prestigious Peabody Award for her HBO visual album Lemonade.
Yaaassss. Let’s give a round of applause for the hardest working woman in show business who’s musical talent knows no bounds. The Beyhive is always happy to push some of her newest accolades in the face of the non-believers, and this is more of a time than any.
Not only is she and Jay Z expecting twins (that she preformed with at the Grammy’s no less) the Lemonade star is adding a new toy to her collection.
Known previously as the “Pulitzer Prizes for Radio,” the Peabody Awards recognizes the top-tier in television, radio and digital broadcasting. Beyoncé is one of the seven honorees in the entertainment category to be name part of the Peabody Awards’ inaugural Peabody 30.
“Lemonade draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic, and aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation,” organizers said in a statement. “The audacity of its reach and fierceness of its vision challenges our cultural imagination, while crafting a stunning and sublime masterpiece about the lives of women of color and the bonds of friendship seldom seen or heard in American popular culture.”
Possibly her Blackest project to date, the visual album continues to get recognized almost a year after its release, yes to the Black Magic that is Beyonce..that is us.
The other winners in the Entertainment category include:
Better Things (FX)
Happy Valley (BBC One)
Horace and Pete (Louis C.K., Hulu)
National Treasure (Channel 4, Hulu)
