Four ASCAP Members Win 2020 Daytime Emmys

July 28, 2020

On July 26, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced the final group of winners for the 2020 Daytime Creative Arts Emmys. Four ASCAP members have made the cut!

ASCAP composers Ken Corday & D. Brent Nelson - both veteran Emmy winners - took home their ninth and fifth trophies, respectively, for their work on Days of Our Lives. Seinfeld star Jason Alexander won his first Emmy for co-writing “The Bad Guys” from Brainwashed by Toons, which tells the history of how cartoons have been used to perpetuate stereotypes about Jews.

We’re also thrilled to see Glenn Slater, a graduate of The ASCAP Foundation Musical Theatre Workshops Led by Stephen Schwartz, earning his first Emmy for his moving lyrics for Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure!

Congratulations to all of our winners. Listen to their winning work in the playlist below.
