    I realize it’s a little early, since entries only have to be in one episode and there are still a few “Special Guest Voices” (as The Simpsons puts it) that haven’t aired yet, but I do have a couple of thoughts on the two Emmy voiceover categories.

    In the character category, I wonder if the new voting system to determine the winner will apply, since voiceover categories go through a “screening round” first.  Assuming it does, and assuming that all members of the Acting branch can vote for the winner as a result, I wouldn’t be surprised if they treat it as a “consolation prize” category, in which case, it’s probably going to end up between Cat Deeley as herself on The Simpsons (as a proxy for her work on So You Think You Can Dance? – assuming her voiceover isn’t declared ineligible under the “no cameos” rule) and Kristen Schaal as Louise on Bob’s Burgers.(as a proxy for The Last Man on Earth).

    In the narrator category, right now I’d pick Corey Johnson for CNN’s Finding Jesus: Faith, Fact, Forgery.

    I believe Meryl Streep has a shot on name recognition alone. And she was great.

    Pardon me for asking, but what voiceover did she do this season?

    And name recognition didn’t help her in 1995, when she voiced Reverend Lovejoy’s daughter on an episode of The Simpsons.

    Yep; another automatic rubberstamped win for Meryl.

    Don’t rule out Harry Shearer taking it this year. It is after all his last season and he’s won before, just last year.
