    I wish that they had more people on The Simpsons.  It is too obvious that it is the same guys over and over again.

    You mean as voiceover nominees?

    The problem is, the women on the show don’t do nearly as many voices as the men do.  Tress MacNeille (Principal Skinner’s mother, Lindsay Nagel, and I think she’s Lunch Lady Doris now as well) might get a “career” nomination, but I don’t see anybody other than Dan, Hank, or Harry (or some guest star) getting one any time soon – and there’s some strange reason that Harry has only one nomination (and never got an Emmy in the juried award days – there were years when, given the choice between Shearer and “no winner”, they chose “no winner”).

    My favorite among those who never got an Emmy: Jason Alexander, for Duckman.  (I can think of three possibilities as to why he never won: it’s possible he never entered, as even if he got a “free” entry, he would have used it for Seinfeld; there’s some backlash against him for some reason (since he never won for Seinfeld either); he only did one voice, and it sounded like himself.)

    My favorite among the current contenders: Billy West, for Futurama.  (I  am under the impression that there really is a backlash against West; the version I heard was, it has something to do with his being in a considerable number of roles, including commercials.  I wonder if anybody still holds a grudge over his tqaking John Kricfalusi’s place as Ren on The Ren & Stimpy Show.)

    Not talking in terms of nominations, I mean that The Simpsons would benefit from a larger voice cast.  It seems kind of cheap as is.

    Really? While I do see where you are going at, I don’t think that it is cheap. Dan and Hank and Harry voice so many characters because they are just so damn talented and versatile.
