Beyonce may sit as the most-awarded singer of all time at the GRAMMYs, MTV VMA, BET, and NAACP Image Awards, but – despite lending TV some of its most memorable musical moments over the last decade – the diva’s overflowing trophy case remains devoid of an EMMY.
And, as the newly announced 2021 Primetime EMMY nominations reveal, that won’t change any time soon.
Nearly two years after dominating headlines for her worst EMMY snubs to date (see: Netflix special ‘Homecoming’ losing in every category it was nominated in), Beyonce’s fans – affectionately called the #Beyhive – were optimistic her critically acclaimed 2020 Disney+ special, ‘Black is King,’ would reign as a redemptive listing among competitors in this year’s nominations’ tally.
However, once the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences unveiled the list Tuesday (July 13), Bey’s name was totally absent – sending the fan group into an uproar.
See what we mean below:

As of time reported, Bey has not responded to the highly publicized snub.
