ASCAP’s film and TV composers have followed up their phenomenal showing at the 2011 Primetime Emmys with an equally impressive majority over this year’s nominations. On July 19th, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced the nominees of the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, and ASCAP members and foreign affiliates represent 21 out of the 29 composers up for awards.
Among ASCAP’s nominees are composer and ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop alum Trevor Morris, who continued his Emmy hot streak, having received two previously and earning another nomination this year for his theme music for The Borgias. Past ASCAP Henry Mancini Award winner Marc Shaiman - who is no stranger to the Emmy awards - earned two nominations this year for his original music for NBC’s Smash.
The Creative Arts awards (including all music categories) will be presented on September 15th.
Congratulations to all our nominees!
