Emmy award’s Homeric

Dan Castellaneta has been voted to receive a Primetime Emmy Award for the second consecutive year for his work as the voice of Homer on Fox Broadcasting Co.’s “The Simpsons.”

The voiceover Emmy, initiated last year, is a juried award that can result in one, more than one or no awards.

“The Simpsons” claimed a half-dozen Emmys in the category during its first flight, including the four regular cast members and guests Jackie Mason and Marcia Wallace. Castellaneta will receive his statue during the non-televised creative arts banquet Sept. 18.

Separately, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences corrected its earlier Emmy tally for several services: Revised figures show PBS with 30 nominations, MTV with five, a quartet for Arts & Entertainment and a single nod to Nickelodeon.
