This past weekend pop queen Beyonce released her highly-anticipated short film Lemonade (which borrows its title from her latest album) and both critics and fans alike are still praising it for its incredible visuals, and a narrative that explores anger, betrayal, redemption, sadness and so much more in a way that’s a reflection of her impactful artistry.
And now, the hour-long Lemonade might be on its way to winning an Emmy. According to Variety, HBO has submitted the visual album in the variety special category, and since it was a TV special its eligible for Emmy consideration. Currently Beyonce and Kahlil Joseph are the only credited directors for Lemonade, but HBO is also trying to add several other directors: Dikayl Rimmasch, Jonas Akerlund, Mark Romanek, Melina Matsoukas, and Todd Tourso.
The “Formation” superstar has come close to winning an Emmy twice in the past. The first time was in 2013, when she was nominated for her Super Bowl Halftime show, while the second time was for her On the Run Tour concert special with Jay Z (which also aired on HBO) the following year.
If you missed out on Lemonade you can check it out on both Tidal or iTunes.
