The 10 Coolest Title Sequences and Theme Songs Never Nominated for an Emmy
Just so you know, Title Sequences and Theme Songs fall into two different categories, and a lot of people conflate the two. You can have a great theme song and a lousy title sequence (“Friday Night Lights,” for instance) and vice-versa (“Mad Men”).
The Emmy Awards have been handing out nominations for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music since 1988. They have been handing out nominations for Title Design since 1990. It is my understanding that shows are only eligible for the categories in their first year of existence, otherwise I suppose a great theme song could win year after year. Yet, despite the fact that the Emmy voters get to choose five new title sequences and theme songs every single year, they still managed to miss out on these ten in each category.
Also, before we get to the list, here’s this year’s nominations for Title Sequence:
“American Horror Story”
Main Title Sequence
Dead Like Me
Flight of the Conchords
Main Theme Song
Here are this year’s nominees for theme song, followed by the 10 Biggest Snubs in that category.
“Hell on Wheels”
Game of Thrones
Band of Brothers
Friday Night Lights
Fresh Prince of Bel Air
Law & Order
