The team behind Beyoncé’s critically acclaimed docufilm “Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé” is not afraid to tell the Television Academy what they really feel.
Homecoming was completely snubbed at the 2019 Creative Arts Emmys with none of its six nominations materializing into awards. This baffled viewers, fans and figures across the creative industry as James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke even bested it in the category: Outstanding Technical Direction, Camerawork, Video Control for a Limited Series, Movie or Special.
While Beyoncé herself preferred to stay silent on the matter, her Homecoming crew posted a meaningful video to express how they feel. Yvette Noel-Schure took to Instagram to share a clip with the rest of the team sending off middle fingers to the Emmys. She then captioned it: “#creativeartsemmys weekend done! #feelings ❤️Netflix”
See the short but meaningful clip below:
Ben Hagarty, the videographer behind the project, wasn’t happy about the snubs either. He rightfully took offense on the fact that Carpool Karaoke won an award for its technical aspects. Hagarty Tweeted:
“I held a heavy ass camera and walked backwards keeping these 3 legends in frame while dave held a carabiner on my pants to guide me… Oh and I did it going down a set of stairs … ”

Beyoncé lost out on trophies for directing, Best Production Design, Best Costumes Musical Direction, and Best Writing. These went to Springsteen on Broadway, RENT, RuPaul’s Drag Race and Fosse/Verdon respectively. Carpool Karaoke ended up taking home the award for Outstanding Variety special.
