‘SNL’ could make beautiful music (and lyrics) at the Emmys with a record third win

You know what would be music to “Saturday Night Live’s” ears? If it wins Best Music and Lyrics for “Come Back, Barack” at the Emmys, which would give the show a record three wins in the category.

“SNL” is tied at two with “The Carol Burnett Show” and “The Simpsons.” “The Carol Burnett Show” won for “Cinderella Gets It On” in 1976 and “Hi-Hat” in 1978; the latter was a tie with “See You Tomorrow in Class” from “The Sentry Collection Presents Ben Vereen: His Roots.” “The Simpsons” grabbed back-to-back trophies in 1997 and ’98 for “We Put the Spring in Springfield” and “You’re Checkin’ In (A Musical Tribute to the Betty Ford Center),” respectively. “SNL” has Justin Timberlake to thank for its two wins; the first was for “Dick in a Box” in 2007 and the second came in 2011 for the singer’s monologue.
