Beyonce’s “Homecoming” was nominated for six awards in categories for variety specials and non-fiction programming: Best Variety Special (Pre-Recorded), Directing, Writing, Music Direction, Production Design and Costumes.
It lost out on all of them.The award for Best Variety Special instead went to “Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney.” “Springsteen on Broadway” won Best Directing, and Hannah Gadsby’s “Nanette” won for Writing. The award for Production Design went to the live television production of “Rent,” while Music Direction went to the “FX’s Fosse/Verdon.” “RuPaul’s Drag Race” took home the trophy for Best Costumes.
Her new documentary Making the Gift, which follows her creating her Lion King companion album, airs tonight on ABC. She wrote, produced, and directed the special, and I can only assume if she doesn’t get an Emmy for this she’s going to just keep writing, producing, and directing specials until someone is smart enough to give her one.
