Who do you think deserves the Emmy for Oustanding Music Supervision?
August 14, 2017 at 11:00 am #1202184841
- Big Little Lies
- Better Call Saul
- Master of None
- Stranger Things
This will probably go to Stranger Things by a landslide but I’d watch out for GirlsAugust 14, 2017 at 2:44 pm #1202185038
Big Little Lies will win this category, though most other years it would have been Girls.August 14, 2017 at 4:27 pm #1202185113
I’m still shocked Atlanta didn’t make it in here (especially since I believe Donald Glover himself was one of their music supervisors).
Without it, I think the 3 most likely are split between genre: BLL in first, Master of None in second, and Stranger Things in third.
I’d need to re-watch BLL to be sure since I can’t remember which episode they submitted. Stranger Things would win if it’s sweeping. Master of None would be my personal choice, other than Atlanta it was the only show I instantly thought would be nominated when this category was announced. They submitted very well.
Overall, I’m really happy this category exists. Decent choices for a first yearAugust 14, 2017 at 6:35 pm #1202185174
The Young Pope and Feud should’ve been here.August 14, 2017 at 7:06 pm #1202185217
Underground should be winning this by a landslide.August 15, 2017 at 2:55 am #1202185495
The Leftovers had a good chance, but Insecure was truly the best and it should be winning this.August 15, 2017 at 4:00 am #1202185515
Speaking of HBO, I’m slightly surprised Westworld couldn’t make the cut. Whether or not you thought the piano covers were deserving (I personally liked them), voters clearly loved the show.
Decided to double check the ballot for this category and yeah, Donald Glover was co-submitted for Atlanta, which makes its omission really odd. In retrospect, I’m also surprised Mozart in the Jungle missed.
The main question for me is how much this category is tied to the strength of a show overall, compared to how ‘musical’ it is, and how that will play out in years to come.
In addition to the examples I gave above (Westworld being a strong show, Mozart being a musical one, and Atlanta seemingly both), right now I’m also considering:
– On the Comedy side, Veep didn’t submit
– BLL got in ahead of all of its Series competitors that submitted (Genius didn’t)
– Same thing with Stranger Things and BCS (every Drama Series nominee submitted)
– If BCS managed to get in here, does that suggest it could win somewhere? It’s the most surprising nominee to me, and I’m very intrigued by what someone mentioned in another thread about how a show nominated for Series multiple times almost always wins somethingAugust 15, 2017 at 1:52 pm #1202186032
I want BLL to win because they give me “River” and “Cold Little Heart”, two of my favorite musics. And they remember me the existence of Agnes (the final scenes with her music and Elvis music is terific choices of song).August 17, 2017 at 9:08 am #1202187862
Honestly any of them besides Better Call Saul deserves to win.
It’s a toss up between Master of None and Big Little Lies for me.August 17, 2017 at 1:24 pm #1202187998
I’d be happy if Big Little Lies, Master of None, or Stranger Things won. I personally think 13 Reasons Why should have been nominated for “The Night We Met” alone.August 21, 2017 at 12:40 pm #1202191073
I am not a fan of rap and hip hop or really music in general, but in my opinion, rap and hip-hop based shows should have dominated this category this year.In my opinion the lineup should have been any of the following: Big Little Lies, Stranger Things, Westworld, Pitch, Insecure, Luke Cage, Underground, The Leftovers, and Atlanta. I’d have gone with: The Leftovers, Westworld, Underground, Pitch, Luke Cage, and Big Little Lies.August 23, 2017 at 9:57 pm #1202193404
I’ve finally started watching the sopranos and it’s such a shame this category is new because the sopranos would have dominated music supervision.
