With everything that global pop phenom Beyoncé has accomplished in her 25+ year career, it’s almost surprising that she’s yet to reach EGOT status — an entertainer with an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award to their name, that is.

However, it looks like Queen Bey may be one more shiny trophy away from achieving the coveted honor with news today that she’s been nominated for the very first time at this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards in the category of “Outstanding Original Song.”

The Destiny’s Child lead singer’s inaugural Daytime Emmy nom comes by way of her own mother, Mrs. Tina Knowles-Lawson, thanks to Bey lending her vocals on the theme song (seen above) to the new Facebook Watch series, Talks With Mama Tina. Entertainment Weekly reports that her competition is light at best, nominated against two songs from long-running soap opera The Young And The Restless, which leads the overall nominations with 18.
