BMI affiliates took center stage this past weekend at the Microsoft Theater at LA Live, claiming their well-earned accolades at the ceremonies for the 71st Annual 2019 Creative Arts Emmys. Over the course of the prestigious two-evening event, three of BMI’s composers were recognized for their work on some of the most acclaimed television series in recent memory. Hildur Guðnadóttir received the award for Outstanding Music Composition for a Limited Series, Movie or Special (Original Dramatic Score) for “Please Remain Calm” from the powerful historical drama Chernobyl, marking a first-time Emmy win for the Icelandic composer. Also winning his first Emmy was Alex Lacamoire, who took home the award for Outstanding Music Direction for “Life is A Cabaret” from Fosse/Verdon, which chronicles the partnership between choreographer/director Bob Fosse and dancer/actress Gwen Verdon. Returning to the stage for a second consecutive year, Iranian-German composer Ramin Djawadi received the award for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score) for “The Long Night” from the smash HBO series Game of Thrones. For her song “Antidepressants Are So Not A Big Deal” from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Rachel Bloom took home the award for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.
