Composer Bear McCreary wins his first Emmy!

Bear McCreary needs to get a big cabinet for this sucker, because there will be many more to come. Many more.

I know this happened a few weeks ago, but I just wanted to post a little ditty saying that that I'm proud to know this guy, and very excited about what's to come. It's been a trip watching from afar as he's composed the scores for Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, Human Target, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and now Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (and more).

I hope it's okay to say that I see this Emmy as being a sort of "lifetime achievement so far" award for all of the above listed projects. In my humble opinion, the work that he did on Battlestar is enough to earn this award.

Check out my 2009 interview with Bear, post Battlestar

If you're into television and movie soundtracks and fascinated with the whole process, check out his blog.
