Courtesy of Parkwood Entertainment/HBOQueen Bey‘s beyhive was all abuzz during Sunday night’s Emmy award ceremony. The performer’s visual album, Lemonade, was nominated for four Emmys, but lost in three of four categories.
Last night, Beyoncé fans hoped the celebrated artist would finally win a trophy for Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special.
However, she lost to Grease: Live! director Thomas Kail. Upon hearing the news, The Beyhive unleashed its fury on Twitter.
“How you gonna bring Laverne Cox up to present an award Beyonce is nominated in and have her give it to two white men,” wrote one Twitter user.
“Wait. Beyoncé lost to GREASE? the Emmys were even worse than you people led me to believe,”wrote another.
Bey was noticeably absent during the awards ceremony, due to falling ill and needing to rest her vocal cords in preparation for future concert dates, a source told Us Weekly.
