Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ Just Won the Prestigious ‘Peabody Award’ on the Visual Album’s 1 year Anniversary

Yesterday, the Internet was celebrating the one year anniversary of the release of Beyoncé’s powerful HBO visual album “Lemonade” on April 23.

There was more reasons to celebrate as last week, the pop diva’s well-received and critically acclaimed project won a prestigious Peabody Award.

The Peabody Awards are for excellence in journalism; and annually a body of jurors,  consisting of TV and Film producers, news magazine editors, critics and college professors, review a slate of nominees and select only 30 for the honor of a recognition.

This year, 12 Entertainment projects were awarded honors. Of the 12 recipients, two are music documentaries.

About Lemonade, the announcement read:

“The audacity of its reach and fierceness of its vision challenges our cultural imagination, while crafting a stunning and sublime masterpiece about the lives of women of color and the bonds of friendship seldom seen or heard in American popular culture.”

Congrats! Incubating two humans and racking up awards. You go mama-to-be!

My other fave, Donald Glover, won a Peabody for his FX series Atlanta.

I am also a fan of Ava DuVarney and was happy to see her documentary “13th” was also recognized.

Finally, as a life long lover of Hip Hop music, I found it also very noteworthy that Banger Film’s documentary “Hip Hop Revolution” also won!

In its 76th year, Peabody Awards honor excellence in radio, television and other forms of electronic media. The winners for News, Radio/Podcast, Children’s, Education and Public Service categories will be announced on April 25th. The ceremony takes place on May 20th at Cipriani Wall Street in New York.
