AceShowbiz - Beyonce Knowles lost her chance to win her first ever Emmy Award. Being nominated for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special alongside Kahlil Joseph for her visual album "Lemonade", she lost it out to "Grease Live" directors Thomas Kail and Alex Rudzinski.
While Beyonce has not reacted to her loss, her fans are clearly displeased with the result. Many took to Twitter to express their disappointment at the Television Academy. "the emmys itself should have been in the in memoriam section since it disrespected beyonce," one user wrote.
"i truly do not understand how our queen and lord and savior and goddess and supreme ruler did not win. #emmys #LEMONADE," another tweep reacted. Another asked, "Why didn't @Beyonce win? I need answers! #Emmys." Some people posted scenes of Beyonce in "Lemonade" smashing car windows.
Some others took their anger on the winner, "Grease Live". " 'Stupid Grease?!??' - my 8yo Bea about Bey's loss #emmys," someone posted. Other users wrote, "Boycotting hair grease now that Grease beat Beyonce" and "we now live in a world where Grease Live beat Beyonce."
Meanwhile, host Jimmy Kimmel joked, "I wouldn't want to be those guys when Kanye finds out they beat Beyonce," after Kail and Rudzinski walked off the stage. Thankfully, Kanye West who has been Bey's loyal supporter wasn't at the Sunday, September 18 ceremony to interrupt their speech.
Beyonce's "Lemonade" was nominated in a total of four categories at the 2016 Emmys, including Outstanding Production Design for a Variety, Nonfiction, Event or Award Special, Outstanding Picture Editing for Variety Programming and Outstanding Picture Editing for Variety Programming, but didn't win any.
