Beyonce continues to rack up the accolades – even when pregnant with her feet up.
The superstar singer, who is expecting twins, has just added another award to her shelf: a Peabody Award.
In a press statement, it was announced that the diva’s 2016 visual album ‘Lemonade’ is a winner at the Peabody’s, which salutes excellence in television, radio and digital broadcasting.
The project, which arrived last April, is among seven honorees in the Entertainment category.
Joining ‘Lemonade’ are FX series ‘Atlanta,’ ‘Better Things,’ ‘Horace and Pete,’ ‘Happy Valley,’ ‘National Treasure,’ and HBO’s ‘Veep.’
Speaking on Queen Bey’s effort, organizers said:
“Lemonade draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic, and aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation. 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.”
For folk not in the know, the Peabody’s are one of the more revered honors in critics circles. As such, it’s a huge look for Beyonce and all involved.
The 76th annual Peabody Awards tapes May 20th at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC and airs on PBS and Fusion on June 2nd.
Congrats to all involved!
