Winners of the 74th Annual Emmy Awards Music Categories

This year’s Emmy Awards were hosted by Kenan Thompson in person at L.A.’s Microsoft Theater. The big winners of the 74th Annual Emmy Awards were Succession, Ted Lasso, and The White Lotus. Ted Lasso won Outstanding Comedy for the second year in a row, The White Lotus won Outstanding Limited Or Anthology Series, and Succession won Outstanding Drama Series. HBO’s Euphoria took home an Emmy in 6 categories this year, including Zendaya’s win for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series.

Music Supervisor Nora Felder

The Emmy for Outstanding Music Supervision was first introduced five years ago. The award was presented for the first three years in a row to Amazon Prime Video’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for the music supervision by Robin Urdang, Amy Sherman-Palladino, and Dan Palladino. Last year a new winner emerged when the Emmy was awarded to Matt Biffa and Ciara Elwis for the HBO series I May Destroy You. After Stranger Things season 4 took over Tunefind and the internet as a whole, music supervisor Nora Felder took home the Emmy this year in the category of Outstanding Music Supervision. Felder has been recognized in the category a total of 4 times for her work in Stranger Things. This year is her first win in the category. Upon release of Stranger Things season 4, ‘Running Up That Hill’ by Kate Bush surged in popularity and made the 80s song a hit again. It started climbing the charts and reached no. 1 on iTunes. Season 4 of Stranger Things has reminded the world what a great sync placement can do for a project, thanks to Nora’s work as the music supervisor.
