    This is the first year that nominations for “Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics” (the Emmy equivalent of the Oscars’ better-named Best Original Song) will spawn from a popular vote of the entire music branch instead of being the averaged results of ratings assigned to songs by panelists.  This is bad news for smaller shows, but good news for the predictions game because we will be seeing a public ballot online for the first time and they will probably just vote for songs that we know and not snub hits out of nowhere.  This happened to be a big year for songs that somewhat penetrated the zeitgeist (as much as they can for television). Pre-ballot contenders:

    – American Dad!: “I’m a Virgin” (Abel Tesfaye, Asa Taccone)
    – Big Mouth: “Anything Goes in Florida” (Mark Rivers)
    The Black Godfather: “Letter to My Godfather” (Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo)
    Black Mirror: “On a Roll” (Trent Reznor)
    Bob’s Burgers: “Pig Trouble” (Fiona Apple)
    – BoJack Horseman: “Don’t Stop Dancing ‘Til The Curtains Fall” (Jesse Novak, Elijah Aron, Alison Tafel)
    Carnival Row: “Lora Lie Lo” (Patty Gurdy, Kristin Robinson)
    Chasing Happiness: “Jersey” (James Alan, Jason Evigan, Jonas Brothers)
    Dave: “Jail” (Dave Burd)
    – Dickinson: “Afterlife” (Hailee Steinfeld, Mikkel Eriksen, Stephen Kozmeniuk)
    Drag Race: “I’m That Bitch” (RuPaul Charles, Leland McLaughlin, Freddy Scott, Thomas Campbell)
    Drag Race: “Las Vegas Live Medley” (RuPaul Charles, Thomas Campbell, Leland McLaughlin)
    Drag Race: “Madonna” (Michael Seligman, Thomas Campbell, Kara Klenk, John Polly)
    Drag Race: “You Don’t Know Me” (Bert Elliott, Leland McLaughlin)
    – The Eddy: “The Eddy” (Glen Ballard, Randy Kerber)
    – The Eddy: “Kiss Me in the Morning” (Glen Ballard, Randy Kerber)
    – The End of the F***ing World: “Meaner Than the Sea” (Graham Coxon)
    Euphoria: “All for Us” (Timothy McKenzie)
    – Family Reunion: “This is Me” (Wendell Hanes)
    The Good Fight: “Secret Law” (Jonathan Coulton)
    – High School Musical: “All I Want” (Olivia Rodrigo)
    – High School Musical: “Wondering” (Jordan Powers, Josh Cumbee)
    – I am Not Okay with This: “There’s a World Outside My Door” (Graham Coxon)
    The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show: “Glittery” (Kacey Musgraves, Daniel Tashian)
    – Kidding: “Hope is the Song” (Alan Schmuckler)
    Lady and the Tramp: “What a Shame” (Joseph Trapanese)
    – Last Week Tonight: “Eat Shit, Bob!” (Tim Carvell, John Oliver)
    – The Late Late Show: “A Week and a Day” (David Javerbaum, Guillermo Brown, Tim Young)
    Little Fires Everywhere: “Build It Up” (Ingrid Michaelson)
    – The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: “One Less Angel” (Thomas Mizer, Curtis Moore)
    – The Midnight Gospel: “Dreams Wash Away” (Joe Wong)
    – Modern Love: “Circus” (Gary Clark)
    – Modern Love: “The Lost and Found” (Gary Clark, John Carney)
    – The Oscars: “Recap Rap” (Utkarsh Ambudkar)
    Rhythm + Flow: “Last Supper” (Daniel Farris, Mark Spears)
    – The Righteous Gemstones: “Misbehavin’ ” (Joseph Stephens, Danny McBride, Edi Patterson)
    The Sack Lunch Bunch: “Grandma’s Got a Boyfriend” (John Mulaney, Eli Bolin, Marika Sawyer)
    The Sack Lunch Bunch: “Pay Attention” (David Byrne, John Mulaney, Marika Sawyer, Eli Bolin)
    – Saturday Night Live: “On the Couch” (Kenan Thompson, Chris Redd, Abel Tesfaye)
    – Saturday Night Live: “Slow” (Kenan Thompson, Chris Redd, Ashley Frangipane)
    – Saturday Night Live: “Stuck in the House” (Adam Sandler, Pete Davidson)
    – Seven Worlds, One Planet: “Out There” (Sia Furler, Christopher Braide)

    I left it off since most of it was not original for the show.

    I’ve been listening to some of these songs again on Spotify. and a small touch I really love is that they credit the characters as the singers, so for “L to the OG” they list Nicholas Britell and Kendall Roy. For the Righteous Gemstones, their song “Misbehavin” Which is perfect for the show btw, lists the singers as Aimee-Leigh and Baby Billy. And the Black Mirror song credits the singer for “On a Roll” as Ashley O. Doesn’t mean anything for the race obviously but just a small touch I really love.

    Are the Rusical productions from Drag Race considered original songs? Given it’s now a popular vote any of four Rusical numbers being nominated wouldn’t be surprising.

    I’m that Bitch
    You Don’t Know Me
    Madonna: The Unauthorised Rusical
    Las Vegas Live Medley (I Made It / Mirror Song / Losing is the New Winning)

    Oscars FYC:

    "Lamb" – International Feature and all categories

    "Summer of Soul" – Picture, Film Editing and Documentary Feature

    “The Green Knight” – in all categories

    Sack Lunch Bunch will likely do well, but “Anything Goes in Florida” should win, though they certainly couldn’t play any of it on the telecast, lol.

    L to the OG

    I know it’s supposed to be intentionally bad and cringeworthy, but I can’t stop myself from loving it.
