Beyonce wins prestigious Peabody Award for 'Lemonade'

Pop Sensation Beyonce has been honoured with a prestigious Peabody Award for her HBO visual album 'Lemonade.' Once known as the "Pulitzer Prizes for Radio," the Peabody Awards recognise excellence in television, radio and digital broadcasting, E! Online reported. In a statement, organisers said, "Lemonade draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic, and aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation. Donald Glover's FX show Atlanta, HBO's Veep, and Louis C.K.'s Horace and Pete were also among the winners of the seven awards. Rashida Jones will host the 76th annual Peabody Awards at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on May 21. The ceremony will air on June 2 on the Pivot channel.
