Homer Simpson has bagged another Emmy.

Dan Castellaneta, the actor who provides the voice of the patriarch of Fox’s long-running animated comedy “The Simpsons,” has earned this year’s Primetime Emmy Award honor for voice-over performance for his work as Homer, Krusty the Clown, Grampa and other “Simpsons” characters. Castellaneta won voice-over Emmys for “Simpsons” in 1992 and ’93.

The voice-over performance honor is one of three Primetime Emmy Award categories that are so-called juried awards, which have no nominations and final winners are determined by a panel of judges with relevant expertise. The juried awards will be formally presented to the winners along with the rest of the Creative Arts Primetime Emmy categories Sept. 12 at a ceremony held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The major Emmys will be handed out in a televised ceremony a week later.
