The Emmys are always a pretty huge deal.
The Creative Art Emmy Awards went down last weekend and the event was truly incredible.
But, in typical Emmy fashion, it wasn't short of non-stop drama. There's always some form of outrage over certain Emmy winners and nominees, and, this year, the feud involves Queen Bey and British comedian and actor, James Corden - it's safe to say that fans aren't happy about who won.

The seventy-first Emmy Awards kicked off on Saturday...

Emmys were being handed out like nothing else...The technical and acting categories held many deserving winners, but the biggest winners of the weekend combined were HBO's Game of Thrones with 10 Emmys, and HBO's Chernobyl with 7.
Many actors and actresses found themselves in for a night of staggering success.

Corden is best known here in the States for The Late Late Show.The forty-one-year-old Brit rose to fame back in 2007, when he co-wrote and starred in BBC sitcom, Gavin and Stacey. Since, Corden has gone on to star in various other comedies and host TV shows which lead him to take over The Late Late Show - one of our countries most popular late-night television shows.
Corden truly shows off his comical talents when hosting the show...The Late Late Show is pretty much a late-night party, with a range of celebrity guests who take part in comical and musical sketches.
But the show is really famous for...Is "Carpool Karaoke!"
This boosted the popularity of the show...

He goes on to host a quick chat show along with singing songs that the celebrity is famous for.
Corden has welcomed some exceptional guests on "Carpool Karaoke..."This includes Michelle Obama, Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Brittney Spears, Justin Bieber... and that's not even half of the famous guests that have taken part in the sketch!
"Carpool Karaoke" is a sensation all around the world.

Corden's success knocked down a very famous nominee, however...
via: Getty ImagesBeyonce was the runner-up in a range of categories for her documentary, Homecoming, which documented her Coachella performance both onstage and behind the scenes.
Beyonce ended up walking away empty-handed...Despite her loyal following of world-wide fans presuming that she'd be taking home at least 1 Emmy Award.
Beyonce's fans instantly began venting their frustrations...They felt that Homecoming deserved the Outstanding Variety Award due to the hard work that Beyonce and her team had dedicated to the performance in comparison to "Carpool Karaoke."
People took to Twitter to express their anger...

There are also hundreds of other artists who dedicate their entire lives to performing...There's no doubt that Beyonce put tireless effort into Homecoming, but we mustn't forget other artists who have put blood, sweat, and tears into their work too.
One user went far enough to brand Corden's win "misogynistic" and "racist."Emmy Awards are handed out with no relevance to race, whatsoever. They are given when an artist has worked hard and has delivered a talented and successful performance so it has to be said that this is a ridiculous accusation.
But it didn't stop there...One user claimed that Bey lost to "white mediocrity." "Carpool Karaoke" and Homecoming are 2 completely different productions, meaning the decision for the winner won't have been an easy one, so it's highly unlikely that the large group of professionals who decide on who wins is choosing depending on race.
Users began criticizing the techniques used in "Carpool Karaoke" in comparison to Homecoming.
