Nathan Lane

  1. Jason Alexander, Seinfeld, TV, 1989-1998.     .
  2. Whoopi Goldberg, The Lion King, 1994.    Lane and Ernie Sabella were so funny  voicing the hyneas, Banzai and Shenzi that Jeffrey Katzenberg (overseeing  his last Disney movie) promoted them to the meerkat and warthog, Timon and Pumbaa.  
  3. Sean William Scott, Ice Age: The Meltdown, 2004.   In the mix for voicing Crash. His Lion King duo partner, Ernie Sabella, didn’t win Eddie, either.  Several characters missed Blue Sky’s final cut, including: Robert Duvall”s Alec The Vulture, Jamie Foxx’s Jonathan the Woolly Mammoth, Heath Ledger’s Chuck the Smilodon, even Woody Allen’s Thomas the Opossums.
