The Simpsons Movie, released in 2007, was nominated for several major awards, including a Golden Globe Award, while The Longest Daycare, released in 2013, became the franchise's first production to be nominated for an Academy Award.

Primetime Emmy Awards[edit]

The Simpsons has won 31 Primetime Emmy Awards in four categories, but has been nominated for 78 awards in nine different categories. Two of these nominations were for "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire", which was nominated in 1990 as a separate cartoon because officially it is considered a TV special and not a part of the series, however it is included in these statistics. The show's best year was 1992, when it won six Emmys, all for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance. Until 2009, the Outstanding Voice-Over Performance Emmy was awarded by a committee, so there were no nominations.[25]

The Simpsons has been nominated for Outstanding Animated Program every year except 1993, 1994 and 2014. 1993 marked the first year that the producers of The Simpsons did not submit episodes for the Outstanding Animated Program Primetime Emmy Award.[26] Prior to 1993, the series had only been allowed to compete in the animation category, but in early 1993 the rules were changed so that animated television shows would be able to submit nominations in the Outstanding Comedy Series category.[27] The producers submitted "A Streetcar Named Marge" and "Mr. Plow" but the Emmy voters were hesitant to pit cartoons against live action programs, and The Simpsons did not receive a nomination.[26] Several critics saw the show's failure to gain a nomination as one of the biggest snubs for that year.[28][29][30] The Simpsons' crew again submitted episodes for "Outstanding Comedy Series" the next season, but these again were not nominated.[26][31] Since then, the show has submitted episodes in the animation category.

This applies to The Simpsons in person, not the series. The star is located at 7021 Hollywood Blvd.[83]
