Grammer wins Emmy; Simpsons also nominated

Simpsons News — Posted 24 Jul, 2006 by Scott

Kelsey Grammer has added a fifth Emmy to his collection, this time for his voice-over work on Fox's animated comedy "The Simpsons."

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences on Wednesday announced the winners in several categories of the 58th annual Emmy Awards that don't go through a nomination process and are decided by juries of members from the respective academy branches.

Grammer earned his first Emmy in the outstanding voice-over performance category for his recurring role as criminal mastermind Sideshow Bob on "The Simpsons." His Emmy haul already includes four prizes for his work as Dr. Frasier Crane on "Frasier."

The Simpsons has also been nominated for an Emmy, for the episode The Seemingly Never-Ending Story. It faces tough opposition from the controversial South Park episode, Trapped in the Closet, which ridicules Tom Cruise and Scientology; and Family Guy's PTV.
