Nora Felder, series music supervisor, took home the highly coveted award - beating out the likes of hit shows 'Euphoria' and 'Ozark'.
The 2022 Creative Arts Emmy Awards saw 'Stranger Things' take home the Emmy Award for Outstanding Music Supervision.
Nora Felder, series music supervisor, won the award for the episode 'Chapter Four: Dear Billy', which included Kate Bush’s 'Running Up That Hill'.
The series skyrocketed the song back into popularity, heavily featuring throughout the fourth season of Stranger Things - acting as the favourite song of character Max Mayfield, played by Sadie Sink.
While previously nominated for the award four times, it's the first time the series has actually won the award, beating out 'Euphoria', 'Better Call Saul', 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel', and 'Ozark'. Previous award winners include 'I May Destroy You', 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel', and 'Big Little Lies'.
Kate Bush has notably issued a number of statements on the renewed success of her single, which landed in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time after the series aired, also reaching Number 1 on the Irish singles chart.
"You might’ve heard that the first part of the fantastic, gripping new series of Stranger Things has recently been released on Netflix," Bush's website read. "It features the song, ‘Running Up That Hill’ which is being given a whole new lease of life by the young fans who love the show — I love it too!”
The singer continued: "Because of this, ‘Running Up That Hill’ is charting around the world and has entered the UK chart at Number 8. It’s all really exciting! Thanks very much to everyone who has supported the song. I wait with bated breath for the rest of the series in July."
The show also revived Metallica’s 'Master of Puppets'.
Other winners at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards include the 'Schmigadoon!' song 'Corn Puddin’' which won Outstanding Music and Lyrics; 'The White Lotus' for Outstanding Music Composition for a Limited or Anthology Series, Movie or Special, as well as Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music; and 'Severance' won Outstanding Music Composition for a Series.
During yesterday’s ceremony, Emmys were also awarded to The Beatles: Get Back, Adele: One Night Only, and Dr. Dre’s Super Bowl Halftime Show.
