SNUBBED? Beyonce gets no Emmy love for ‘Homecoming’
'Finding Neverland' and "When They See Us' nabbed Emmy awards over the weekend.
The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences handed out several Emmys at their Creative arts ceremonies over the weekend but Homecoming: a Film by Beyonce didn’t get any love.
Although the groundbreaking project from Netflix earned four nominations, it failed to take home a single win. Beyonce wasn’t at the awards ceremony but she was represented by her team including longtime publicist and manager and they seemed to make their feelings on the perceived snub be known in an Instagram post.
Twitter seemed to agree that the incredible concert special should have won an award, especially over Carpool Karaoke, which is essentially shot by a dash cam.

Even though Beyonce got snubbed, a few of our favorites were victorious. Ava DuVernay‘s When They See Us nabbed an Emmy for Outstanding Casting for a Limited Series, Movie, or Special and Nike won Outstanding Commercial for its ad “Dream Crazy” featuring Colin Keapernick.
HBO’s shocking Michael Jackson doc, Leaving Neverland nabbed the Emmy for Outstanding Documentary.
