YMMV / Lemonade (2016)

Go To

  • Award Snub:
    • Lemonade fans became rather upset that it won zero of its four Emmy nominations, especially after Beyoncé herself lost Outstanding Directing for a Variety Special to Grease Live! director Thomas Kail.
    • A lot of Beyonce fans feel like it happened to her once again again at the Grammys when Lemonade lost to Adele's 25. Notably, even Adele herself seemed to feel this way, almost outright stating in her speech that she thought Beyoncé should've won. Though obviously, considering this is Adele, this is proving to be an extremely divisive topic, as many people feel like the award was earned and a talented singer would be "snubbed" either way.
      • Many fans were eventually mollified by the album winning the more prestigious Peabody Award for its cultural impact in entertainment.

  • Even Better Sequel: Surprise release Beyonce was an instant classic, yet somehow, follow-up Lemonade was considered an improvement.
  • Memetic Mutation: "You better call Becky with the good hair."
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Symbolic?: A person could write a dissertation on all the symbolism in Lemonade.
