While it seems like Beyoncé hit her prime the moment she left Destiny’s Child to pursue a solo career, her star just continues to shine. The pop music icon garnered three Emmy nominations for Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé and is predicted to be a contender for the coming Oscars.
The Emmys has kicked off the prestigious awards season and Billboard already claims that Beyoncé might win all three awards shows: Emmys, Oscars and Grammys. Although she’s only officially nominated for the Emmys, getting an Oscar isn’t a long shot. Beyoncé’s ‘Spirit’ for the Lion King remake is a viable contender for the Academy Awards best original song.
As for the Grammys, that won’t be far from the superstar’s reach as her Homecoming: The Live Album is a strong contender for the best urban contemporary album.
Beyoncé’s Homecoming flick on its own actually earned six Emmy nominees but for the work of other creatives involved in the docu-film. The singer’s nominations include outstanding directing for a variety special (shared with Ed Burke), outstanding music direction (shared with Derek Dixie) and outstanding writing for a variety special.
As for the three other nominations that helped the film reach a whopping six nominations, these are for outstanding variety special (pre-recorded), outstanding production design for a variety special (Ric Lipson, Rachel Duncan and Andrew Makadsi) and outstanding costumes for variety, nonfiction or reality programming (Marni Senofonte, Oliver Rousteing and Timothy White).
And in case you need reminding as to why she’s called Queen Bey, the recording artist has received a grand total of 66 Grammy nominations. That’s more than any other female artist in history and has resulted in 23 wins.
