ASCAP composers and lyricists were called to the stage again and again at the 39th annual Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards gala, held at the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 17th. ASCAP members were singled out in all five music categories, with six winners in all.
Among the six ASCAP winners were Jack Allocco and David Kurtz, the longtime composing duo behind The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. Allocco and Kurtz clinched their seventh career Emmy - no surprise, given that they were nominated four times! 2011 Emmy winner Bill Schermerhorn won his second consecutive Daytime Emmy for his lyrics to "(Won’t You) Join Our Parade" from the 2011 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Congratulations to all of our winners!
