Written by Jamia Pugh on May 5, 2022
The almost never-ending list of Beyoncé‘s awards and accolades has just gotten longer, since the Grammy-winning singer just received her first-ever Daytime Emmy Award nomination.
The National Academy of Television Arts and Science announced the 2022 Daytime Emmy Award nominations on Thursday, revealing Beyoncé as a first-time nominee in the Original Song category for her contributions to the Facebook watch show Talks with Mama Tina, which hosted by her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson.
For the first time since 2012, there are Black nominees in both the Lead Performance Actor and Lead Performance Actress categories. Earning those two spots is The Young and the Restless actress Mishael Morgan, and James Reynolds from Days of Our Lives.
Tamron Hall, Taraji P. Henson, Robin Roberts and Jada Pinkett Smith are four of the five stars nominated in the Outstanding Informative Talk Show category, making that category’s nominees 80% people of color.
Beginning in 1974, the Daytime Emmys have recognized outstanding achievement in television, honoring shows and programming in a variety of categories. The 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be presented Friday, June 24 and will air live on CBS at 9 p.m. ET.
