Outlander gets a name check on the Simpsons

Outlander has been a big success but now it can finally claim respect from the only thing that really matters: The Simpsons.

The Simpsons, which is the longest-running American sitcom, has been on the air since 1989.

Although its episodes aren’t as well-received now as they were in earlier seasons, it’s still a prestigious honor to be mentioned in one.

Outlander isn’t exactly wanting for recognition, though. The Starz original series has repeated been nominated for the Golden Globes, the Saturn Awards and the People’s Choice Awards since its 2014 debut.

Lead actress Caitriona has been nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Actress each year since 2016, though she has yet to win.
