23 ASCAP Members Shortlisted for 2019 Creative Arts Emmys

July 16, 2019

In an announcement on the morning of July 16, the Television Academy nominated 23 ASCAP members and international affiliates for their exceptional work in music for the small screen from June 1, 2018 through May 31, 2019.

Among the nominees is incoming ASCAP member Siddhartha Khosla, who earned a nod for his score to This Is Us. We're also thrilled to see two ASCAP workshop alumni on the list: Nicholas Britell (2012 ASCAP/Columbia Film Scoring Workshop grad, and recipient of the inaugural ASCAP Harmony Award) and Jack Dolgen (2011 ASCAP Foundation Lester Sill Songwriters Workshop). We’re so proud to be a part of their stories! Special kudos to Dolgen, his Crazy Ex-Girlfriend collaborator Adam Schlesinger, and British composer Steven Price for earning multiple nominations this time around.

And a shoutout to all of our music supervisor friends who were nominated in the Outstanding Music Supervision field: Steven Gizicki, Thomas Golubić, Jasper Leak, Brienne Rose, Daniel Palladino, Amy Sherman-Palladino and Robin Urdang.

The 71st Emmy Awards will telecast live on Sunday, September 22 (8PM ET/5PM PT) on FOX. The music categories will be awarded during a separate Creative Arts Emmys ceremony, taking place September 14 & 15 at the Microsoft Theater at LA Live. The Creative Arts Emmys will air Saturday, September 21 at 8:00 PM ET/PT on FXX.
