Two members of the Steinhardt community received multiple nominations for Emmy Awards for their work producing and scoring hit television shows.

Erin Doyle (BS ’07), who graduated from NYU Steinhardt with a degree in communication studies, is nominated for two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series as a producer for NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” as well as Outstanding Short Form Nonfiction Or Reality Series for “Creating Saturday Night Live.” Variety reported that “Saturday Night Live” enjoyed a surge in ratings this season, with this past season ranking as the show’s most-watched in 23 years. “Saturday Night Live” tied with HBO’s “Westworld” for the most Emmy nominations this year at 22 each.

Doyle won a 2015 Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special for her work as a producer on the “Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special.”

Composer Mac Quayle, who was part of the faculty of the 2017 NYU/BMI Television Scoring Workshop and was an NYU Steinhardt student, is also nominated for two Emmys for Outstanding Original Main Title Music and Outstanding Music Composition for Limited Series, Movie, or Special for the FX original series “Feud: Bette and Joan.” Quayle won a 2016 Emmy for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score) for USA Network’s “Mr. Robot.”
