BMI composers took home three prestigious accolades at the 2023 Primetime Emmy Creative Arts Awards, held this past Saturday evening, January 6, at the Peacock Theater at L.A. The ceremony was originally slated for September but was delayed due to the writers and actors strikes in Hollywood.

Al Yankovic received his first-ever Emmy award for Outstanding Music Composition for a Limited or Anthology Series, Movie or Special (Original Dramatic Score) for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, a film that additionally won the Outstanding Television Movie award.

Danny Elfman was awarded the Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music Award for his work on Wednesday. Elfman has previously won three Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music for Desperate Housewives in 2005 and Outstanding Music Direction for Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton (Live from Lincoln Center) in 2016.

Singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran (PRS) won the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics award for “A Beautiful Game” from Ted Lasso. Last night marks Sheeran’s first-ever Emmy nomination and win.
