Worst: 'Grease: Live' Beats Out Beyoncé's 'Lemonade'
Twitter was awash with GIFs of Queen Bey twirling a baseball bat in front of a wall of fire after the Directing for a Variety Special winner was announced. The wrath of the Beyhive was invoked by Fox's Grease: Live, helmed by Thomas Kail and Alex Rudzinski, taking the statuette over of Lemonade, directed by Kahlil Joseph and Beyoncé. And not for nothing: That live musical staging was perfectly competent, but it doesn't hold a candle to the arresting, dreamlike aesthetics — nor the titanic cultural influence — of that the movie-length video. It's safe to say that Grease: Live is the Becky with the Good Hair of this situation.
