Beyonce Presents Longtime Director Melina Matsoukas With AFI Honor

Published: Friday 7th Jun 2019 by Sam

Beyonce sprung a surprise on longtime friend and collaborator Melina Matsoukas last night at the AFI Lifetime celebration for Denzel Washington.

Queen Bey presented the director with the Franklin J. Schaffner Alumni Medal at the glitzy ceremony.

Her appearance, while unannounced and a shock for Matsoukas, was especially apt.

The pair have been working together since 2006 and have amassed quite the videography together – with one of their more recent outings being the widely praised ‘Formation’ visual.

Check out Bey’s presentation speech below…

Beautiful.

      HONEY, she is not High nothing…………..she can’t even control her husband’s cheating-ass ways. That’s a divided household at best boo. She’s worth 500 MILLION and still can’t keep her Husband in Check. Jay Z got the hottest chick in the game and still chasing BASICS………. dumb N.

        I truly believe Beyonce encourages this type of behavior from her fan base no one wants her ugly husband but her and she so insecure that every woman have a conversation with jay z she gets upset Beyonce go have several seats and stop this madness her fans will end up hurting someone she just like trump robotic looking ass self

      I guess celebrating a black successful director would have been to hard a thing to do. No wander you monkeys always bottom of the barrel. Focusing on the wrong s***!!! And what does Beyonce and her marriage have to do with anything deflection and negativity. Neither of you could stomach two women of colour celebrating successful careers… the hate in your heart translates to dredging up irrelevant s***!!!

      I like Bey. The hate is idiotic. If you are going to hate make it have purpose. Her husband and family is her business not urs. I could see if y’all were hating on that horrible remake of ‘Before I Let Go’ but to hate on meaningless stuff is ridiculous.

  4. Bonko June 7, 2019

    OMG! I don’t understand why the title make it sound like another coup had happened.
    Guess that is the power of social media.
    It is an unfortunate event but not end of the world.
    Americans are smarter than this.
    And the fact that only a small portion of the the people are affected says a lot about this award!

      It’s projection when you wake up to crack w**** of a mother who would sell you for a quick hit in some roach invested apartment in the projects, you gonna be mad when you see classy bey ascend heights you can only dream of. If you’re miserable you project that misery. Unfortunately some people will take inspiration and some will choose to wallow in hate. You can only offer people like that pity cause no amount of hate will improve these peoples lives.
