As Emmy voting draws to a close, the 2020 music nominations span rookies to regulars. Martin Phipps landed his sixth nomination overall for the dramatic score to Netflix's "The Crown." Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and his scoring partner Atticus Ross nabbed a nomination for their first series, HBO's "Watchmen." Emmy fave "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" grabbed another music supervision nom, while composers Thomas Mizer and Curtis Moore landed their first for music and lyrics. 

There is a wealth of music nominated across different sounds and genres. Variety breaks it all down in the annual Emmy chart.

"Why We Hate" (Discovery) by Composer: Laura Karpman has been nominated for 'Music Composition for a Documentary Series or Special' & 'Main Title Theme Music'

Laura Karpman (Underground, Paris Can Wait, Step, Black Nativity) has scored the Discovery docu-series Why We Hate. The show is directed by Geeta Gandbhir & Sam Pollard and investigates the human capacity for hatred and how we can overcome it. The 6-parter traces the evolutionary basis of hate and uses stories from past and present to reveal the nature of the primal and universal emotion. Steven Spielberg, Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) and Frank Marshall (Jurassic World, The Sixth Sense) are executive producing the Amblin Television & Jigsaw production with Stacey Offman, Richard Perello (Super Troopers), Darryl Frank & Justin Falvey (The Americans, The Haunting of Hill House), Yael Melamede, Erica Sashin and Steve Tisch (Forrest Gump, The Equalizer). Karpman has previously scored the Spielberg-produced 2002 mini-series Taken. Why We Hate will premiere later this year on Discovery.
