Britney Spears documentary Framing Britney scores TWO Emmy noms after film exposed star's mistreatment in Hollywood

FRAMING Britney Spears has received TWO Emmy nominations after highlighting tragic moments of the singer's conservatorship battle.

The Hulu documentary premiered in February and it touched on the viral Free Britney movement that has taken over the media.


Framing Britney Spears has been nominated for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction and Outstanding Picture Editing for a Nonfiction Program.

The film will compete against Boys State, The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, The Social Dilemma, and Tina, for Documentary.

Allen v. Farrow, Billie Eilish: The World's A Little Blurry, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, Q: Into The Storm, The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart and The Social Dilemma will be the competition for Picture Editing.

The documentary itself has exposed Britney's ill-treatment as a child star in the entertainment industry.

The singer battled frequent misogyny in the early 2000s when she rose quickly to stardom, and the film highlighted some of her most heartwrenching moments.

Framing Britney also touched on the terms of her 13-year conservatorship, which she has since begun fighting in court proceedings.

After suffering a 2008 mental health breakdown, the pop star's father, Jamie Spears, opted for court-ordered control of her personal and financial matters.

On Wednesday, Britney, 39, will return to court for her second hearing in regards to the abolishment of her conservatorship.

The mother of two hopes that her father will be removed from the appointment, and that she will feel freedom in her decision-making once more.

Last month, the dancer spoke out against her conservatorship for the first time, as she claimed the order has been "abusive" and detrimental to her happiness over the past decade.

"I am not happy, I can't sleep. I'm so angry, it's insane. And I'm depressed. I am traumatized," she confessed to the judge.

"I just want my life back. I want to end this conservatorship without being evaluated.

"This conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good. I deserve to have a life, I've worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two to three-year break," she explained.

Britney will return to court this week to continue her case against the restrictive conservatorship

Britney's looming second court appearance will also discuss her right to a lawyer after her court-assigned attorney Sam Ingham resigned last month.

During her first court hearing, the hitmaker claimed that Sam never informed her that she could petition for the conservatorship to end.

Although some have stated that the singer's attorney should be appointed one by the judge once more, friends and family including her mom Lynn have expressed hope that the Toxic singer will be able to hire her own representation.

In addition, both Britney's manager Larry Rudolph has resigned and a wealth-management firm that was set for becoming a co-conservator has withdrawn from the case.

After the Framing Britney Spears film was released, the teen star claimed she felt "embarrassed" by the documentary and "cried for two weeks," despite never actually watching.

"My life has always been very speculated… watched… and judged really my whole life !!! For my sanity I need to dance to @iamstevent every night of my life to feel wild and human and alive !!!" she wrote on Instagram.

"I have been exposed my whole life performing in front of people !!! It takes a lot of strength to TRUST the universe with your real vulnerability cause I've always been so judged… insulted… and embarrassed by the media… and I still am till this day !!!!

"I didn't watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in … I cried for two weeks and well …. I still cry sometimes !!!! (sic)"
