Beyonce's 'Lemonade' wins prestigious Peabody Award

UPI News Service, 04/20/2017 

Beyonce's latest album "Lemonade" was named on of seven winners in the Peabody Awards' Entertainment category.

The Peabody Awards announced the Entertainment winners on Thursday, with the certified platinum album "Lemonade" and its accompanying visuals being the only musical selection chosen.

"Lemonade draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic and aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation," the award organizers said.

"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."

Each of the other six winners were television shows, including FX's "Atlanta" and "Better Things," Hulu's "Horace and Pete" and "National Treasure," BBC One's "Happy Valley" and HBO's "Veep."

Rashida Jones will host the 76th annual Peabody Awards ceremony set to take place at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on May 20.

The awards show will air on PBS and Fusion June 2.
