What do we think the line up for Outstanding Music Composition. Besides 24, we never really had many repeat nominees. Especially in the last four years. I think The Newsroom will get in with its oscar nominee Thomas Newman. Other then that I’m not sure. I also hope past nominee Ramin Djawadi can get in for Game of Thrones – his soundtrack for the past season has been fantastic. Is there a reason he hasn’t made the line up in the past two years? Is it just me who thinks with music is amazing. Thoughts?June 4, 2013 at 9:44 pm #278876
Along with The Newsroom, count on House of Cards because Jeff Beal is a ten-time Emmy nominee and three-time winner. Jeff Richmond has gotten in for 30 Rock the last two years and John Lunn of Downton Abbey won last year, so they are solid bets.
Emmys are unusually obsessed with Sean Callery, so he is bound to pop up
at least once, but my guess is for main title theme music for Elementary.
I would love to see Nathan Barr for The Americans and Gabriel Mann for Rectify show up.
This category is always a massive crapshoot, so Game of Thrones could get in, even though it is zero for three (including main title theme music)June 4, 2013 at 9:50 pm #278877

30 Rock’s Jeff Richmond has been nominated the last 2 years.
They like The Simpsons’ Alf Clausen. He holds the category’s nomination record with 16 (12 for The Simpsons and 4 for Moonlighting).
He was nominated for The Simpsons in 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1998, 1999, 2001, 2004, 2005, 2008, 2009, and 2011. He has 2 Emmys in the Music & Lyrics category, but no wins here.June 5, 2013 at 12:52 am #278881
Game of Thrones should be winning this award for their various scores and how they can play such an important part in the episode. When the music is played it is usually to create drama but also when they choose to have no score it works even better. I hope they can win this award.June 5, 2013 at 2:09 am #278882
I know it’s near-impossible, but I’d love for Mark Mothersbaugh to be recognized for his scoring on Enlightened. I feel like underscore is a small, but still very important part of what makes the show so beautiful.June 5, 2013 at 10:43 am #278883
It amazes me how heads and shoulders above every show on television Michael Giacchino was with his work on Lost with a couple of themes and motifs for every character, as well as original music every episode and it sometimes being the most important element in a scene.
The only thing that came close was Bear McCreary’s soundtrack for the cancelled The Cape on NBC a couple years back.
