Beyoncé was nominated for an Emmy

The chart-topping 'Lemonade' earned Bey a directing nod

Beyoncé is officially an Emmy nominee.

As announced Thursday, Beyoncé scored a nod in the Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special category alongside Kahlil Joseph.

The nomination was one of four for Lemonade, which also landed citations for Outstanding Production Design For A Variety, Nonfiction, Event Or Award Special, Outstanding Picture Editing For Variety Programming, and Outstanding Variety Special (where Lemonade will go up against Adele’s Live in New York City special).

The Emmys love extends an already extensive reign for Lemonade. After premiering in April, the visual album debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100, scoring Bey her sixth consecutive No. 1 and making her the first woman to get 12 tracks on the chart. It’s since sold over 1.2 million copies in the U.S.
