Simpsons lose animation Emmy, but Dan Castellaneta wins for voicing

Simpsons News — Posted 16 Sep, 2009 by Scott

The winners for the 2009 Creative Arts Emmys - the precursor to the main Emmy ceremony - have been announced.

The Simpsons episode Gone, Maggie, Gone was nominated for Outstanding Animated Program, along with South Park's Margaritaville and episodes of American Dad and Robot Chicken.

However, The Simpsons lost out to South Park - which is a shame, because theirs was one of the weaker episodes of the Season, while Gone, Maggie, Gone was on of the best of Season 20. The same episode was also nominated for Outstanding Music Composition For A Series, but lost to ABC show Legend Of The Seeker.

There was some good news though, as Dan Castellaneta - the voice of Homer - won an Emmy for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for the episode Father Knows Worst. Congratulations, Dan! Also nominated in the same category were Hank Azaria - voice of Moe - for Eeny Teeny Maya, Moe and Harry Shearer - voice of Burns and Smithers - for The Burns and the Bees.

The main Emmy show - known as the Primetime awards - will air this Sunday. Family Guy is nominated in the Outstanding Comedy Series category after a campaign by showrunner Seth MacFarlane.
