What’s everyone’s predictions for the music categories?
Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score)
Music Composition for a Limited Series or Movie
Original Main Title Theme Music
Original Music and Lyrics
6th Place WGA 2021
12th Place VES 2021
61st Place BAFTA nominations 2021June 10, 2020 at 12:05 am #1203524927
I am bad at anything below the line, but regarding Original Dramatic Score, I will put my two cents in:
– Westworld is a lock, I would say. They love Ramin, who outdid himself once again in the third season. He has so many episodes he could choose from. Succession (Nicholas Britell) is probably a lock too, but he did miss last year.
– The Crown was nominated for its first season, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it miss here. Did anyone really love this new score?
– The Handmaid’s Tale finally broke through last year for Adam Taylor, who I think will retain his spot. He was nominated at the first-ever Society of Composers & Lyricists Awards, and his season 3 score is perhaps his best work yet. “The Ruins of a Memorial” and “Refugee” really stick out.
Beyond that, I have no idea who to mention. I guess The Morning Show could be in the hunt (though I hated that score), as well as last year’s nominee This Is Us.June 10, 2020 at 3:47 am #1203525057
Considering Succession won Title Theme Music last year and got nominated at Society of Composers & Lyricists Awards I’d arguably say it’s a lock.
FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")June 10, 2020 at 5:22 am #1203525125
I don’t know if all of them are eligible for music supervision, but here are my predictions.
Better Call Saul
Big Little Lies
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Spoiler: This is UsJune 10, 2020 at 5:42 am #1203525146
I wonder if ABC will submit mixedish for the title song. It uses Mariah Carey’s “In The Mix”June 10, 2020 at 8:20 am #1203525482
Clinton Shorter, The ExpanseJune 18, 2020 at 2:44 pm #1203541177

Music Supervision: Euphoria
Original Music: Euphoria (All for Us)

Original Main Title Theme: His Dark MaterialsJune 18, 2020 at 4:04 pm #1203541321
The Mandalorian….Ludwig Göransson, composer
His music for the show is distinctive, perfect for the theme and setting.June 19, 2020 at 9:26 am #1203542334
For those saying Succession is going to miss music composition, this video explains why that isn’t the case :
FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")June 19, 2020 at 10:32 am #1203542466

I’m sure they did. It’s a high profile title song. Hope it scores a nomination! If Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was able to get in last year for a new Sung title song for its final season, I don’t see why this can’t.
Most of the competition in this category will be instrumental works.June 20, 2020 at 1:40 pm #1203543905
Reznor and Ross are 100% winning for Watchmen.
Both Succession and Westworld will get nominated, I hope Westworld wins.June 20, 2020 at 2:24 pm #1203543938
Amazon has season 4 of The Expanse (Clinton Shorter; he did District 9’s music along with House of Lies) samples for you to try out, if you wish:
