While the Emmys are known as television’s highest honor, a number of nominees will be acknowledged for their musical talents during the 2020 Emmy Awards.
The best music and lyrics category honors the best original songs featured on television, with past winners including Saturday Night Live‘s “Come Back Barack,” 13th‘s “Letter To The Free” and last year’s winner, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s “Antidepressants Are So Not A Big Deal.”
This year’s nominees include songs from Euphoria, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, Little Fires Everywhere, The Black Godfather, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, This Is Us and Watchmen.
Pharrell Williams, Ingrid Michaelson, Labrinth and Trent Reznor are among the familiar faces that will be competing against each other in the category. The nominated songs range from comedic bits such as Last Week Tonight With John Oliver s “Eat Sh!t, Bob” to more serious numbers like Little Fires Everywhere‘s “Build It Up.”
