Congratulations to Beyoncé, whose visual album Lemonade continues to earn awards more than a year after its release.
Alongside television shows like Atlanta and Veep, EWreported Thursday that Lemonade won a Peabody Award in the entertainment category.
According to its website, the Peabody Awards recognize powerful storytelling.
Fun fact: Disgraced host Bill O’Reilly once lied about winning a Peabody.
The 2017 awards were announced just one day after old footage circulated of Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) calling out Bill O'Reilly — who was fired from his Fox News gig Wednesday — for claiming to win a Peabody Award when, in fact, he never did. Read more (4/20/17)

Wishful Thinking: First Hundred Days after November 8
1. Hillary Clinton is elected President.
2. Democrats take over the Senate, and reduce the Republican margin in the House to just 3 votes.
3. Elizabeth Warren announces she’ll challenge Hillary in the 2020 Democratic primaries if Hillary isn’t sufficiently progressive and bold during her first term.
4. The Democratic National Committee issues new rules eliminating “superdelegates” and requiring open primaries.
5. In her inaugural address, Hillary Clinton promises to “wrest back control of our democracy and economy from the moneyed interests that have taken over both.”
6. President Hillary Clinton nominates Barack Obama to the Supreme Court, who immediately pledges to reverse “Citizens United.” Senate Democrats make a rule change that allows Obama to be confirmed with 51 Senate votes. He is.
7. President Clinton nominates Bernie Sanders for Treasury Secretary and Michelle Obama for Attorney General. Both are immediately confirmed.
8. The chairman of the Republican Party officially repudiates Donald Trump, saying “shame on us for having nominated him.” Mitch McConnell, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, and Mike Pence appear in a joint news conference in which they apologize for having ever supported Trump.
9. Disgraced and with his brand in tatters, the value of Trump’s properties drops 80 percent. His creditors demand that his personal assets – homes, planes, furniture, all he possesses – be liquidated to pay his bills.
10. Rupert Murdoch fires Sean Hannity from Fox News.
