    Thanks. I had a lot of thought about all my nominees, some of the “just misseds” I really wanted to get nominated, but there was just too much talent. I am happy that you like my choices for Comedy Series 😀

    Well, I can tell that you absolutely love American Dad. Everyone has their favorite show that really resonates with them. But, I found it a little odd when you put some of the voice acting performances as actual acting performances. Acting/voice acting are two different things. But overall:  .

    Not to me, it’s not. Acting is acting. It takes as much talent, if not more, to just voice a character as opposed to play one in live-action. I won’t go into the nitty-gritty of voice acting, but I can see how someone who is not used to seeing voice-over acting in normal categories would feel. But I felt that all those actors really deserved it. Thanks for the compliments nonetheless.

    Oh, this isn’t the case at all – some of the most memorable film performances of the last twenty years have been voice-over…Ellen Degeneres (Finding Nemo), Robin Williams (Aladdin) and Idina Menzel (Frozen). I can understand why you don’t think it is the same as normal acting because the physicality of the performance isn’t there. However, voice acting is just as much a challenge because someone like Macfarlane and The Simpsons’ cast work just as hard doing a variety of characters.

    Exactly. Dan Castellaneta who plays Homer, Grampa, Krusty and many other character on The Simpsons is one of the most talented individual people, I think possibly ever. The same goes the rest of The Simpsons cast. Even if they are voice-over people, they are easily more talented than most of the actors who get nominated. I’d like to see you play ten different characters on a show and have them all sound different like Dan or Hank [Azaria] or Harry [Shearer] does on The Simpsons.
