Beyonce may have missed out on some of her Grammy Award nominations, but when the Peabody Awards announced their Entertainment winners on April 20, Beyonce was among the winners.
Peabody presented Beyonce with an award for her visual album “Lemonade” for her contribution to American culture. The Peabody committee noted, ““Lemonade” draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic, and aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation. The audacity of its reach and fierceness of its vision challenges our cultural imagination, while crafting a stunning and sublime masterpiece about the lives of women of color and the bonds of friendship seldom seen or heard in American popular culture.”
Other Peabody Award Entertainment winners are:
“Horace and Pete”
Sit-Com creator Norman Lear was presented with the Individual Award and the Independent Television Service – ITVS – was presented with the Institutional Award for their contributions to excellence in television.

“Audrie & Daisy”
“FRONTLINE: Confronting ISIS”
“Independent Lens: Trapped”
