Tim DeLaughter Gets Nominated For An Emmy

It was back in January when we learned that Polyphonic Spree frontman Tim DeLaughter had written the theme music for the Diablo Cody-penned Showtime series United States of Tara. Well, six months later, more on that front: DeLaughter's been nominated for an Emmy Award for his work on the theme song in the category of Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music.

Won't be a cakewalk win, though; the category pits DeLaughter against venerable John Williams, among others.

The winners will be announced at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 20.
