    Probably will not happen, but in a perfect world the Normal People leads and both Lenny Abrahamson and Hettie MacDonald for directing the show would be in conversation for nominations.

    Sigh, agreed. Paul and Daisy are SO, SO good. Paul, in particular, really is incredible.

    I love the Music Supervision on the show as well. Even if long shots, I’m hoping for some below the line nominations like this and Cinematography at least.

    I actually found the music supervision offensive.  I do not know how you can be a professional music supervisor and feel like it is okay in the first five episodes to use both “The Night We Met” and “Only You”, the two most iconic songs from the first season of 13 Reasons Why, a cultural phenomenon with such celebrated music supervision that it won the guild award in spite of being a teen show generally not in the awards conversation.  On probation from me for that, I was further irked when I heard other songs like “Into Dust” that I recalled from memorable usage in other shows.

    I think the the selected songs aligned with the mood of the moments that they were used for extremely well that I can’t complain even if some of them have been used in the past. Admittedly, I have not watched 13RW and I obviously don’t watch as much content as you do so maybe it wasn’t going to be a big problem for me in the first place.

    The songs in Normal People were used in the first season of 13 Reasons Why, but they’re well-known songs and 13 Reasons Why’s opening season aired 3/4 years ago. Normal People has great music supervision throughout the entire season, and each half-hour episode deserves plenty of behind the scenes recognition.

    I thought the songs perfectly complimented the scenes and don’t recall the show playing The Night We Met or Into Dust, but I could have totally missed it. But every other song perfectly lends itself to the ambience of the scene.

    Also Into Dust will probably never be used as beautifully as it was in The Handmaid’s Tale, we will forever be spoilt by that scene and that ending.

    I think MS should be more about enhancing that particular moment emotionally than anything else and what fits, fits. If the show does that well then I for one won’t have a problem. Mrs America uses pretty popular songs and I think the MS there is great.

    I think that casting is a good analogy for music supervision.  You can cast Meryl Streep in Big Little Lies and you are obviously going to get a good performance, so in terms of casting, it is mission accomplished, but I am not about to go out of my way to praise that casting because of the lack of imagination and risk.  Casting Tom Pelphrey in Ozark on the other hand impresses me because that is not something that I ever would have thought to do.  Whoever cast him demonstrated expertise in their field by keeping apprised of people like him, who had proved themselves to be talented, but were not widely known.  Then there is casting like Chris Rock in Fargo (and let us assume here that he is good), where they take a well-known existing property, but then subvert expectations about how it can be used.  This also demonstrates a skill set clearly beyond that of your average couch potato.

    What kind of voting system does Music Supervision use? Do they have panels or tapes? Or is it just a free for all? Was just thinking that if I was a voter I could absolutely tell you any number of shows I think have good music supervision from memory but I’d be screwed if I had to accurately tell you what shows had the best without something forcing me to re-watch episodes.

    Popularity vote (with a single episode and music supervisors listed).

    I want one of “Euphoria,” “Big Little Lies,” “Mrs. America” or “Little Fires Everywhere” to win Music Supervision.

    I love the music supervisor and casting analogy and it helped me understand it, but surely if its good work like in Normal People it deserves to be recognised whether the play. it safe with conventional choices or not. It’s not like the songs used in Normal People are overplayed

    Yeah, they weren’t. Maybe Riley was mistaken.

    Here’s the complete tracklist.

    Excellent!  It must have just been temporary music in my screeners then, which happens. Who knows what else my experience was missing?
