Composing : Upcoming Emmy Noms... by Dara Taylor

Upcoming Emmy Noms...

Who do you think deserves a score nomination this year?

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Dara Taylor should win! True Detective in my opinion was really good this last year. House of Cards, too. What are your thoughts?

Dara Taylor

Haha, I don't think I'm on the ballot, Julie, but I'll see what I can do ;-) And, Jeff Beal's House of Cards score is alway's fantastic! He plays so many of the instruments himself too!

Brian Gaber

I second (or third) House of Cards.

This is definitely not Emmy-worthy, but I can't get the music out of my head from Tina Fey's new show The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmit - anyone watch that?

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Actually, I take that back. If anyone knows the show, I absolutely think "Pinot Noir" should be up for best original song ;) (I kid.)

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

@Brandi - ha ha! Pinot noir...mid-sized car. (I think Dara is going to kill us for hijacking her legitimate thread about the Emmys, sorry Dara!)

Dara Taylor

Hahaha, no I love this! And Kimmy Schmidt! And Titus Burgess (who I actually knew in NY), and Pinot Noir!! :-)

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Uhhhhnnnn---breakable.....dam#it!

Dara Taylor

Those feeeee-males are strong. as. hell.

Pinor noir....Roseann Barr. For anyone that's following this thread and thinks we're insane, here's the Pinot Noir reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6yttOfIvOw

No more wine for you guys! :) I definitely love Jeff Beal's score - had a chance to listen to him perform it live. Really great. Still nothing beats the Dexter's theme IMHO, are we bringing back Dexter before the Emmies?

Holy schnapps, Dara. You could have just sent a link. ;)

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Wow, I leave a thread for 24 hours and all h#ll breaks loose! ;) It's amazing how many of these nominations that I haven't seen, so I have some homework to do! But, we were all right about our House of Cards nom. I found this article, too: http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/6634388/emmy-nominations-composer...
