The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, which is the outfit that handles the Emmys and more, is giving a Lifetime Achievement Award to none other than Peter Cullen, voice of Optimus Prime in Generation 1, the live action movies, and more. He’s also voiced a ton of others, including Eeyore in Winnie the Pooh and and the intro voice over to Voltron . We congratulate Mr. Cullen, it is well deserved! Read on for the press release.

Nov. 15 (UPI) — The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced Wednesday that voice actor Peter Cullen will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award. Cullen will receive his award at the Children & Family Emmy Awards on Dec. 17.

Cullen has been a voice actor since the ’70s. He is most famously the voice of Optimus Prime in the animated and live-action Transformers, Eeyore in Winnie the Pooh and Zandar in G.I. Joe.

Cullen has also done various voices for Scooby-Doo, assorted Mogwai in Gremlins, Duck Tales, The Real Ghostbusters, Sesame Street and more.

In a statement, Cullen joked, “Are you sure they have the right Cullen? I spell it C-u-l-l-E-n. Seriously though, I am humbled to be recognized by the Academy with this great honor.”

Jojo Siwa and Jack McBrayer hosted the first Children & Family Emmy Awards last year. NATAS has not announced this year’s hosts yet.

This is well deserved. There are so many great voice actors from my childhood, but none will ever mean more to me than Peter Cullen did. One of the best voice actors of all time. This is well deserved.

He needs to retire from voicing optimus unless it is old Optimus. He is too old. Do old characters or cameo and give the mantle to some one young

He definitely deserves it, but I agree that he should retire and let someone younger take the rings of Optimus.
