    The category is dominated by the Fox animated shows, but does Steve Whitmire (Kermit, Rizo, Beaker, ect), Eric Jacobson (Miss Piggy, Animal, Fozzie, ect), or Dave Goelz (Gonzo, Chip, Waldorf ect) have a shot at a nomination?

    If I understand the rules correctly, they can’t enter as voiceovers.  Instead, the characters themselves are entered in the corresponding acting category (e.g. Miss Piggy in Comedy Lead Actress), and if the character wins, the voice artist and the puppet manipulators receive Emmys.

    Keep in mind that, in order to do this, they have to make the voice actor & maniuplators’ names public, although they don’t try and hide this with the Muppets as much as they did with, for example, ALF.

    Really? So we could actually have Kermit the Frog or Miss Piggy nominated instead of the actors? That is so awesome and out-of-nowhere I want it to happen.

    But yeah, FYC: Eric Jacobson and/or Miss Piggy.

    1. I completely forgot that this show existed
    2. That Don Guy, where did you get that rule? I laughed when I read it, not at you, but at the rule of course. It just seems like the most obscure out of nowhere random piece of Emmy rule and trivia that nobody could possibly know about.

    Would this mean if Miss Piggy won Comedy Lead Actress a male (Eric Jacobson) would receive the  Lead Actress Emmy?

    Yes, assuming he’s the only person that “performs” Miss Piggy. Almost certainly, however, the Academy would have Miss Piggy “herself” accept on the air.

    However, I did read the rule wrong: “Puppeteers may enter as a team (voice + manipulation) in the voice-over category or in a performer category according to the sex of their character” – so they can enter in the character voiceover category if they want.
