‘Standing On The Sun (H&M advert edit)’ chanteuse Beyoncé has won an Emmy award for Best Outstanding Lighting Design (Lighting direction for a variety special) for her Super Bowl halftime thing.
The award – dubbed ‘the one they all wanted’ – was part of the The Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Award, which are held the weekend before the proper Emmys.
As you well know, they are “largely dedicated to key technical disciplines and behind-the-scenes crafts essential to television production: art direction, cinematography, hairstyling, makeup, music, picture editing, sound editing and mixing, special visual effects, stunts and more.” Congratulations Beyoncé!
