They Beyhive is abuzz after the Emmy Awards on Sept. 18, and fans are NOT happy. Their queen Beyonce’s visual album ‘Lemonade’ was snubbed for Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special, losing the award to Fox’s ‘Grease: Live.’ Yikes! See their angry reactions, here.
Tell’em “Grease, Bye!” Beyonce fans are FUMING that Bey didn’t take home an Emmy Award on Sept. 18, and although her amazing visual album Lemonade was actually up for two awards on TV’s biggest night, fans are particularly upset about the loss of the “Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special” award.
Shockingly, while up against powerhouses like Lemonade, Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo, Adele Live in New York City and the frickin’ 58th Grammy Awards, Fox’s musical special Grease: Live took home the award. To be honest, we’re as shocked as Bey’s fans about the win, though definitely not as enraged. We just thank goodness Kanye West wasn’t there!
As soon as Grease: Live was announced as the big winner (and for hours after), Bey’s fans rushed to Twitter to rant about the unfairness of it all, and they Did. Not. Hold. Back. “Grease Live beat #Lemonade? Grease Live didn’t even beat Grease 2 & Grease 2 was a dumpster fire with Michelle Pfeiffer fanning the flames,” tweeted one fan. Yikes!
However, several others wanted Grease to know there’s no hard feelings, they just LOVE Beyonce more than anything. “And absolutely no offense to the directors of Grease: Live but HONESTLY. #🍋” tweeted another fan. See all of their craziest reactions (and most hilarious gifs), right here:
Can you believe Grease live beat #LEMONADE
