#Beyhive Erupt After Beyonce’s ‘Black is King’ is Shut Out of 2021 #EMMY Nominations

Published: Tuesday 13th Jul 2021 by Rashad

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.

    Get over it hive. Beyoncé can’t win them all.
    And this is coming from a fellow hive member…bzzzzz.

      They’ll cry when she doesn’t get attention and blame it on white people but say nothing when the same white people DO give her something.

      You’re just a HATER

      • Chance July 13, 2021

        And you’re just a whale 🐳. Suffer fatso! You all need to buy her d a m n music instead of worrying about some dumb nomination she doesn’t deserve! Y’all are a weird fanbase.

  2. Hchcgd@gmail.com July 13, 2021

    Boohoo cry me a river. All those other black people who got nominated and they wanna throw a fit because they can’t flex about an award that wouldn’t even belong to them.

  3. Urg July 13, 2021

    Second most toxic fan base ever!!! Get over it y’all queen can always win🤪

      You know f**k the Emmys/Oscars You know the Black Is King should have been nominated for several nominations and I’m tired of how she being snubbed. As Adele stated what the F**k does she have to do. She needs to pulled a what the weekend did.

    She’s got Grammys she don’t need it. Plus Jesus Christ let me guess cause she’s colored she must win for all material she releases. Bruh.

    Maybe next time/project. Until then I doubt that she is pressed. You can’t get nominated for every project, if so that would be highly suspect and would give nothing to strive for. I’m sure she and reasonable hive members understand that. I’m a huge Beyonce fan and although I love the music, I honestly never made it through the entire Black is King film. I think the lack of a nomination will just motivate her even more. Thank goodness she still has goals and accomplishments or accolades to strive for, it will only keep her on her A game. At this point there is no need for her to compete with anyone but herself.

      Lies. She is pressed. Beyonce no longer cares about sales. Been there, done that! She’s focused on CRITICAL ACCLAIM and CULTURAL IMPACT. You better believe Beyonce wants to be an EGOT. At this point HER will get there before her. Everyone knows Beyonce is CALCULATED. There is always a method to her madness. If she wasn’t pressed she would drop the music traditionally and keep it moving.

      • Anne July 14, 2021

        I didn’t say she wasn’t driven or motivated, I think she is. Everyone needs something to strive for just to keep them going. While Beyonce will always be driven (that’s just her nature) I think she knows how to put things into perspective and keep it moving without being pressed, this will only motivate her to keep trying, she’s already accomplished so much but that doesn’t mean she should stop striving for more. I just think there is a difference between being motivated and pressed, one is positive energy while the other is negative. If she was pressed, she’d be only working with writers like Carol King or Diane Warren and making more commercial music, but it seems like she moreso does what she wants when she wants and allows the accolades to come as they may.

    Beyoncé’s recent work has been forgettable Tbh

    She ain’t Jesus

    She doesn’t deserve EVERY damn award

    My biggest dream in life is for the QUEEN to finally win that Oscar. So far the queens biggest achievement with awards in film is Nomination for Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical

    The Queen did an absolutely INCREDIBLE job in AUSTIN POWERS & CADILLAC RECORDS but by far her best performance was in OBSESSED, I was so sure the Queen would win an Oscar for that role especially for all the hospital scenes

    Bey played a SUPER HERO in Austin Powers

    An Autistic Singer in Dream girls

    Bey played a Homeless Prostitute in Cadilac Records

    And even played a Murderer in Obsessed

    Still no Golden Globe nor Emmy

    It makes me angry just thinking about it. I cried when I got the news.

    It still baffles me to this day the Queen didnt win an OSCAR or EMMY Award for playing NALA in LION KING, Bey was responsible for most of the Movies success. Bey worked so hard losing so much weight (over 50 pounds) just so she could fit in that Lion’s Suit. she didn’t use a stunt DBL either and delivered so much raw emotion and conviction like Angela Basett did in WAITING TO EXHALE. She carried the whole entire movie just like she did in Obsessed. My fav scene is when She rescued Simba from his Kid nappers, (that pig and Rodent).

    I believe it’s more a race issue that Beys Movie BLACK IS KING wasn’t nominated for emmy. Also the reason why she never been nominated for an Oscar

    They should Boycott the Emmys like they did the Oscars

    • Farrah Franklin July 13, 2021

      Keep dreaming fattie

    • Roberta FlackSabbath July 14, 2021

      Instead of boycotting the Emmys, try boycotting extra grits and butter.

      Black is FLOP doesn’t deserve the steam off a turrd.

    Good her overrated ass

  10. mike July 13, 2021

    Black is King was boring AF and no different to the over the top visuals she’s served us with before – See Lemonade!

    The Beyhive need to calm it all the way down!

  11. Munchie. July 13, 2021

    Aye, you win some, you lose some….. She’s one of the most awarded people of our time. She’ll be OK.

  12. eric July 13, 2021

    I think you have to be a fan and adore Beyonce in order to enjoy Black is King, because I’m not much of a fan and I thought it was all VERY pretentious. If anything, maybe it should’ve gotten a nomination for costumes.

  13. Terry July 13, 2021

    It has been forgettable to u ….You should atleast say something knowing that you earn more than her so for now jus shhh🤫🤫🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝

  14. Black Is Me July 13, 2021

    Didn’t Black is King come out 2 years ago? I realize 2020 was a long year but it seems to aged Black Is Prehistoric straight out of history.

  15. Kevon July 13, 2021

    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣we need some smoke up in here 😤 theafyonce/theafyonce even stold from lil Kim the original queen B

  16. Keith July 13, 2021

    No one wins every time. Even Beyoncé herself has spoken to that. I hope she’s not somewhere pressed over the Oscar or the Emmy because like Madonna those may elude her. Meanwhile, SO MANY wonderful actors of color were nominated. And MJ’s nomination is historic. So much to root for, let Beyoncé focus on something else…

  17. Bam July 13, 2021

    Question did these same people actually buy the album? Cause the sales Numbers show that they didn’t. So be mad at that. Whitney sold soundtracks all throughout the 90s and Kendricks Black Panther soundtrack did well too so no excuse Hive…

  18. J July 14, 2021

    Whoever edited BIK needs to be fired

    Killed the whole “movie” IMO…

  19. Divab July 30, 2021

    The Emmys is full of bullsh** and they themselves knows that. Beyoncé should have received at least 4 nominations if not more. Black is King 👑 was everything and should have gotten it’s praise
