As Emmy voting winds its way toward its August 31 finish line, Becoming — Netflix’s Michelle Obama documentary, which is nominated for four Emmys, included best documentary special — is getting a boost from the Hollywood Bowl.
The popular Hollywood Hills amphitheater announced on Friday that Kamasi Washington’s score for Becoming, which is among its nominated elements, will be featured in the Bowl’s program ‘Sound/Stage,’ a series of musical performances that were filmed at the location — without audiences, because of the pandemic — on August 14. It will begin streaming on the Hollywood Bowl’s website in late September.
The Becoming score was performed by a 16-piece orchestra, as part of which Washington played the saxophone.
A selection of Washington’s score is also currently included in former Pres. Barack Obama and Mrs. Obama’s curated Spotify playlist.
In addition to best documentary special and best documentary score, Becoming is also nominated for best directing for a documentary and best cinematography for a documentary — both of those nominations recognizing the work of Nadia Hallgren, who is the first person ever to receive that pair of Emmy noms for a single project.
