ACE Editing: Big Little Lies, Best Picture Hopefuls and More...

by Nathaniel R

The guild nominations are here already? Oh, yup, it's January now. (Funny how the calendar keeps happening even if you're in bed for a week plus with the flu!)

Music Supervision, or the selecting and licensing of songs to be included in television episodes, paves a new course for the Emmy's this year -- one that acknowledges and celebrates music in all of its varieties. 

Yet because this is the first year this category is offered, predicting a winner is tricky. But it is all the more reason to explore this year's batch of nominees and predict who stands the best shot at winning the inaugural Emmy Award.
