    I love the music from the scene at the stones in the pilot episode. I’ve gone back and watched just that scene several times, sometimes with the volume cranked up! Very well deserved nomination.

      While I am simply delighted by the nomination of the musical genius Bear McCreary, I am deeply saddened by the slight given to Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan. But, the Emmy committee overlooks the deserving every year in favor of the mundane.
