Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

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.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
