May 26, 2021
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has announced its first batch of nominees for the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards - and nine ASCAP members made the shortlist across two music categories.
We are thrilled to represent all five nominees in the Outstanding Music Direction and Composition for a Daytime Program category! A special shout out to ASCAP Board member Michelle Lewis, whose song "Unsaid Emily" from Julie and the Phantoms earned a Best Original Song nod – her third career nomination.
