‘Come Back Barack’ (‘SNL’) wins Emmy for Best Original Music and Lyrics, stops Pasek and Paul from earning EGOT
“Saturday Night Live” officially has the most wins in Emmy history for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics. At Sunday’s 2018 Creative Arts, the 43-year series just won its third Emmy in the category, for the song “Come Back Barack” written by Eli Brueggemann, Chris Redd, Will Stephen and Kenan Thompson. (Watch our fun interview with Thompson.) By claiming gold, “Come Back Barack” essentially stopped Benj Pasek and Justin Paul from earning an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) this time around.
