ASCAP Members Clinch 80% of Daytime Emmy Noms

From steamy romances to shocking betrayals, animated penguins to giant floating balloons - if you watched a soap opera, daytime children’s programming or the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this past year, chances are you heard the music of an ASCAP member. ASCAP composers and songwriters soundtracked a remarkable 80% of the music nominated for the 39th annual Daytime Entertainment Creative Arts Emmy Awards. The six-time Emmy-winning team of Jack Allocco and David Kurtz received an amazing four nominations for their score and songs to The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless; 2011 Emmy winners Bill Sherman and William Schermerhorn were also nominated again.

The Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards Gala will be held at the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 17th.

Congratulations to all of ASCAP’s nominees!
