Beyoncé has reached yet another award milestone.

The Houston native secured her very first Daytime Emmy nomination thanks to her work on the original theme song of the Facebook Watch Series hosted by her mom, Tina Knowles-Lawson, called Talks with Mama Tina.

News of the "Superpower" songstress' nomination for the outstanding original song came Thursday (May 5).

In her career, Beyoncé has been nominated for eight Primetime Emmy Awards with the most recent being in 2019 for her Netflix film Homecoming, which documented her creative journey for the 2018 Coachella Festival.

Her landmark 2016 Lemonade visual album released on HBO was also nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards. The 40-year-old music icon's 2013 Super Bowl performance and 2015 On the Run Tour concert also received nominations.

Knowles-Lawson announced her Facebook series in December 2021 on Instagram, where she thanked Beyoncé and her three kids –– Blue Ivy, Rumi and Sir –– for creating the theme song.

"Thank you to my baby @beyonce and my beautiful grand babies for making this special theme song for the show," she wrote at the time.

Beyoncé also received her first Oscar nomination this year for her inspiration ballad "Be Alive" for the award-winning film King Richard.

The Daytime Emmy Awards are scheduled to air live on CBS on June 24 at 9 p.m. ET.
