Whoa, mama, The Simpsons have a lot of Emmys!

The animated Fox comedy returns next month for its record 29th season, but there’s something even greater than the number of years the show has been on the air: the number of Emmys they’ve won. Matt Groening’s series, which debuted in 1989, boasts 87 total nominations over the years, plus a whopping 32 victories, the most ever by an animated program.

Since first becoming eligible in 1990, The Simpsons has scored at least one nomination every year (they went winless in their two nominated categories at the 2017 Creative Arts Emmys). While a regular nominee for many of the various music awards, the series has dominated two particular categories: Outstanding Animated Program and Outstanding Voice-Over Performance. The show has been nominated each season, besides 1993 and 1994, for Outstanding Animated Program, with a record 10 wins. In Outstanding Voice-Over Performance, 11 different Simpsons alums have taken home the trophy, including Kelsey Grammer, Hank Azaria, and Anne Hathaway.
