The Emmys kicked Saturday night with the 2019 Creative Arts Emmys in which Beyoncé’s ‘Homecoming’ documentary was nominated for six awards.
It won none of them.
Homecoming documents Beyoncé’s performances at Coachella in 2018, which were such a sensation that they became known as “Beychella.” The film was nominated for a handful of awards among other variety specials and non-fiction programming: Outstanding Variety Special (pre-recorded), Costumes, Music Direction, Production Design, Writing, and Directing.
The special was beat in every category, however. Springsteen on Broadway won for Directing, while RuPaul’s Drag Race took home the trophy for Costumes, and the live television production of RENT won for Production Design. FX’s Fosse/Verdon won for Music Direction, and Hannah Gadsby’s Nanette won for Writing. Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool won for Outstanding Variety Special (pre-recorded).
Unfortunately that was Homecoming’s last swing at the Emmys bat because the special is not up for any other awards during the main ceremony on September 22.
