Beyonce Bags Prestigious Peabody Award For ‘Lemonade’

Published: Thursday 20th Apr 2017 by Sam

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!

    The Queen !!! Still slaying the lemonade Era with her feet up !! Can’t wait to see what she does for the 1 year anniversary of LEMONSLAY. The twins will be here soon & I know after she gives birth she’s going to snap back faster than a rubber band and put some pressure on these pop tarts just in time for the summer. Hopefully we’re getting the FWT special soon and maybe Lemonade will be released on all streaming platforms. We need 6 Inch & DHYS on VEVO !

    @…is 35
    what u don’t seem to understand is that none of our faves are aiming for it. also miss Streisand beat her to it. but bet is still the first black female singer to win it so that is a big deal.

    • MsYonce April 20, 2017

      What does her age have to do with anything??? Yes she the first black artists to win a Peabody award and the second artist overall. “Our favs aren’t aiming for it” LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ok girl

      • MsYonce April 20, 2017

    She deserved that Emmy and aoty award too but just cos she’s Beyoncé people don’t want to give her the awards cos they think she’s already too big

  11. Savage_life April 20, 2017

    Congratulations beyonce I’m happy for you.
    So i think for the mew era you should treat the grammys like how you treat the bet awards and send them recorded performances (for that album of the year snub).
    Yo on another note beyonce award shelf must be lit she wins atleast one of everything.
