Beyoncé may not have won Album of the Year for Lemonade, or the Emmy Award for its visual counterpart, but the work has finally been rightfully recognized.

The singer's Lemonade film won a Peabody Award today (April 20). As the program recognizes excellence in quality television, radio, and digital broadcasting, the visual album was dubbed a "masterpiece."

The board of jurors said about their pick, "Lemonade draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic, and aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation. The audacity of its reach and fierceness of its vision challenges our cultural imagination, while crafting a stunning and sublime masterpiece about the lives of women of color and the bonds of friendship seldom seen or heard in American popular culture."

Bey's Lemonade is among the seven winners in the Entertainment category that also included Atlanta, the FX series created by, produced by, and starring Donald Glover (who was just recognized by TIME as a Most Influential person).

About Atlanta, the jurors said, "Donald Glover’s enchanting series on the struggles of two young black men trying to make it in Atlanta’s rap scene blends vibrant character study and rich socio-political commentary in delivering a detailed and textured exploration of a Southern city."

Rashida Jones will host the 76th annual Peabody Awards on May 20 at New York's Cipriani Wall Street. The ceremony will air on June 2 on PBS and Fusion.
