    These aren’t my predictions, just who I think should be nominated. 7 per category. They are ranked from who should win (#1) to 7th place.

    Best Voice-Over Performance
    1. Trey Parker as Various Characters in South Park [Episode: “Ass Burgers”]
    2. Megan Mullally as Gayle in Bob’s Burgers [Episode: “Dr. Yap”]
    3. Dan Castellaneta as Homer Simpson and Abe Simpson in The Simpsons [Episode: “Politically Inept, with Homer Simpson”]
    4. Joan Rivers as Annie Dubinsky in The Simpsons [Episode: “The Ten-Per-Cent Solution”]
    5. Wayne Brady as Ricky in American Dad! [Episode: “Ricky Spanish”]
    6. Jeff Bergman as Sylvester in The Looney Tunes Show [Episode: “Point, Laser Point”]
    7. Helen Mirren as Becky’s Inner Thoughts in Glee [Episode: “Yes/No”]

    I am under the impression that Trey Parker and Matt Stone do not enter themselves in the voiceover category, in part because they are of the “the characters voice themselves” school (in the movie, they wouldn’t even list the names of the actors who performed the songs – just the characters; IIRC, the only characters who got specific actor credits were Chef (because even the TV series always said “Isaac Hayes as Chef”), Kenny, and Ike (in part because three kids voiced Ike)).

    No love for Billy West (as Fry, Dr. Zoidberg, Prof. Farnsworth, and Zapp Brannigan in Futurama)?  “The version I heard was,” he’s in so many different things (e.g. the Cheerios Bee) that he’s pretty much persona non grata, the way pretty much everybody involved with The Simpsons has an Emmy except Harry Shearer.

    And why Joan Rivers over, say, Arianna Huffington (as Tim’s wife on The Cleveland Show)?

    I had forgotten about Mirren as Becky.  Here are my five (not in order):
    Billy West (Futurama)
    Seth MacFarlane (either as Peter / Brian / Stewie / Tom Tucker / others on Family Guy, or Stan / Roger / others on American Dad!)
    Dame Helen Mirren (Glee)
    Harry Shearer (The Simpsons)
    H. Jon Benjamin (Archer, if it’s eligible this season)

    Archer is eligible, and H. Jon Benjamin should be nominated (and win) along with Jessica Walter.

    Brenda Strong can repeat the nomination that she received last year and even win since this is the last year of Desperate Housewives, I’m rooting for her!

    I put down Trey Parker because I think he did a good job voicing characters in the episode. I didn’t pay attention to anything they have said about not entering themselves, which I personally think is BS because they have done some of the most eclectic and wonderful voice acting on that show over the years. Certainly better than they did in acting in the 1998 film BASEketball.

    And woops…totally forgot about Futurama, as they air during summers. I know that Maurice LaMarche won last year for voicing Lrrr, but I had assumed his episode aired in 2011 during the period of eligibility. Who/what episode/character would you suggest from Futurama? It’s not fresh in my memory. 

    Joan Rivers over Huffington simply because it’s The Simpsons…and Joan Rivers. Not the best episode, obviously, for the Simpsons, but I happen to love Joan Rivers’ brand of comedy and feel that this Daytime Emmy-winner and Tony nominee needs to be a primetime Emmy nominee (if not also for her guest starring work on Louie).

    I am under the impression that they don’t tend to give the award to people who do a voice that’s not very different from their normal voice (Kelsey Grammer as Sideshow Bob notwithstanding).

    If “It’s The Simpsons” is a reason, then why not Jane Lynch for “Replaceable You”?
    There’s something else that has to be considered; Academy members each get one free entry, and a second entry for $100 (it’s $200 after that, which is the fee per entry for non-members).  Is it worth paying for a voiceover entry?  I remember Lynch being in an episode of Neighbors from Hell two seasons ago, but I don’t think she entered it in voiceover.

    Also note that LaMarche did his Orson Welles voice in “Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences”, and I would be surprised if that wasn’t the main reason he won this time.
    I can’t single out a 2011 episode for West off the top of my head, but the show has the advantage of the entire season already being out on disc.

    Speaking of voiceover, there’s some discussion going on in various places as to whether it was Helen Mirren or somebody doing an impersonation of her voice in the Glee Prom episode.  (It was definitely Mirren in an earlier episode.)

    Why does nobody mention Cate Blanchett for Family Guy, she played an even more evil person than stewie (Episode Title “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”)?

    I’m hoping that I haven’t overlooked it, but do the academy release a contenders list for voiceover performance like they do for other categories?

    No, since voiceover nominations are determined by a “screening panel” rather than a general vote from the appropriate branch’s members.  (The same goes for choreography and most of the music categories.)
