BEYONCÉ’S LEMONADE has landed her 11 nominations at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards – a career best for the Destiny’s Child star.
The concept musical drama, which recently landed four Emmy nods, dominates the crop of nominees for the 2016 ceremony, which the network unveiled yesterday (July 26).
Incorporating bits of narrative fiction, documentary and extended music video, work from the hour-long film – it ties together the star’s latest visual album, also titled Lemonade – landed 11 nods for Beyoncé, a new personal best for the singer.
Adele follows with eight nods, including seven for her Hello.
Beyoncé’s Formation received nominations in six categories, including the award show’s biggest prize, for video of the year.
Lemonade, which premiered on HBO in April and preceded the release of the album, also leads the race for breakthrough long-form video, a new category this year. It’s up against extended visual offerings from Bieber, Florence and the Machine, Chris Brown and Troye Sivan.
