The Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance is a creative arts Emmy Award given out by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. It is awarded to a performer for an outstanding "continuing or single voice-over performance in a series or a special."[1] Prior to 1992, voice-actors could be nominated for their performance in the live action acting categories.[2] The award was first given in 1992 when six voice actors from The Simpsons shared the award. From 1992 to 2008 it was a juried award, so there were no nominations and there would be multiple or no recipients in one year. In 2009, the rules were changed to a category award, with five nominees.

Usually the winner is a voice actor from an animated show, but some narrators of live action shows have won such as Keith David in 2005 and 2008. No winner was named in 1996 or 2007.[3]

Eight voice actors from The Simpsons have won a combined 13 Emmys. Of those, Dan Castellaneta has won four and Hank Azaria has won three. Ja'Net DuBois and Keith David have both won two. Voice actors from shows on Fox have won 15 of 24 of the awards.

Rules

While most of the Primetime Emmy Awards choose winners from a group of nominees, the award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance is juried. Each entrant is screened by a panel of Academy of Television Arts and Sciences members from the Animation branch as well as members of the Acting branch with voiceover credits. Potential nominees must submit a DVD that contains an edited version of a single episode and a picture of the character(s) that were voiced. Submissions that are less than 30 minutes in length must be edited to be shorter than five minutes; entries longer than 30 minutes are edited to be less than ten.[1] Prior to 2007, the maximum edited lengths were ten and fifteen minutes respectively.[4] Each entrant with majority approval goes on to a second panel. Emmy winners must be unanimous choices of this second panel, except that for every 12 persons or fraction thereof on the panel, one "no" vote is allowed, except from the head of the panel.[1]

In 2009, the Academy changed the award from a "juried" award to a "category", with five nominees and one winner.[5]
