Beyonce Just Got Nominated For 6 Emmys & We Are Here For It

We're rooting for everybody black.

Beyonce

Blackness isn't a trend or a wave to ride until the mainstream gets bored with melanin, and the proof is in the trophies. For the past few years, Black film and television have been dominating the award shows, proving that all of the Hollywood critics who said people of color are not marketable were dead ass wrong.


Recently, the full list of this year's Emmy's nominations was announced, and just know that over here, we're rooting for everybody black. While Game of Thrones made history with a recording breaking 32 nominations, Queen Bey stole the show in the way that true Black girl royalty always does. The nomination announcement revealed that the behind-the-scenes documentary of her wildly popular Coachella performance, Homecoming, racked up a total of six awards.

Bey has been nominated for four Emmys before, and although she's never taken home a trophy, it's looking like this may just be her year. The announcement comes just on the heels of the live-action Lion King release, where she stars as Nala, and her soundtrack single "Spirit". Thanks to her multi-million dollar collaboration projects with Netflix and Disney, Beyoncé might just win an Emmy, Oscar, and Grammy in the same damn year.

Along with Beyonce, there were a few other stars that dominated this year's Emmy nominations, including but not limited to Viola Davis, Sterling K. Brown, and the cast of When They See Us, who racked up a total of 16 awards. Here's our black AF list of all of the Emmy nominations that were announced today:

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
