Playing Beyonce's 'Lemonade' Slays With Multiple Emmy Nominations

Beyonce's visual album is causing even more conversation.

On Thursday morning, it was announced that Queen Bey's Lemonade is nominated for not one, not two but four Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Production Design For A Variety, Nonfiction, Event Or Award Special, Outstanding Picture Editing For Variety Programming and Outstanding Picture Editing For Variety Programming. Beyonce also earned her first nomination for Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special, and if she wins, she'll be just an Oscar and Tony award shy joining the EGOT club.

The competition, however, is pretty steep this year. In the directing category, Beyonce will go up against Chris Rock, who directed Amy Schumer: Live At The Apollo. 

Schumer joked about being up against Lemonade in several categories, tweeting: "Thank you! We have a really good shot at beating Lemonade right? Hello?"

Other nominees going up against Lemonade include Adele Live In New York City, Grease: Live, The Wiz Live!, Key & Peele and the 58th GRAMMY Awards.

This isn't the first time one of Beyonce's projects has been nominated for an Emmy. On the Run Tour: Beyonce and Jay Z was up for Outstanding Special Class Program in 2015, and her Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show in 2013 was also up for Outstanding Special Class.

In Lemonade, Beyoncé shares the deeply personal story of a scorned lover (the "baddest woman in the game") who was cheated on but ultimately finds a way to forgive her "beautiful man." The hour-long piece shows the stages of betrayal, and how rage can turn to redemption.

The provocative visuals, paired with fiery lyrics about love, infidelity and empowerment, had everyone talking, including Beyonce's own family, and made lemons the hottest fruit of the summer.
