Just the nine most likeliest options above. If you have someone else, select ‘Other’ and explain why below.
The only thing that exec. producer Al Jean gave us as to a clue of whom is going to die is that the actor who played this character, who has appeared more than twice, has won an Emmy for playing him/her. Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, Kelsey Grammer, Jackie Mason, Marcia Wallace and Anne Hathaway are all possibilities (I thought I’d never saw these words, but I am actually happy that Harry Shearer has never won, many he voices many awesome characters).
FYC: Ready Player One. Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, Original Score, Production Design, Director and BEST PICTURE (make it happen Oscars!!)
I’d say Sideshow Bob in a kind of Frank Grimes kind of way… Elaborate funeral, storyline, etc… And because Grammer probably is sick of coming back to do the voice. They probably offered him another guest spot and he probably said “yes but this is the last time,” and the writers said “hey what the hell, let’s do him while we’re at it.” I don’t think Mrs. Bouvier is a big enough character to kill off -i.e. why would they make such a big deal over a character that size dying…
