    Voice-over performers in animated films have yet to be nominated at the Oscars, even though many of them should have been. Use this thread to list your personal nominees and winners of this hypothetic category in years past.

    Hmm, there are occasionally a few performances that could be aknowledged somewhere. However, I don’t think there would be 5 or not even 3 worthy nominees to fill a seperate category every year. A lot of actors would receive far more Oscar nominations than they actually deserve, and this would eventually diminish the prestige of on Oscar.
    And to be honest the only performance that comes to my mind that might have been worthy of being nominated is Ellen Degeneres in Finding Nemo.

    It’s better than Academy Award winner Ellen DeGeneres.

    I don’t think they need this category. I wouldn’t mind if best movie poster was added lol.

    It’s not.

    Ellen DeGeneres in Finding Nemo was deserved of a nomination in best supporting ACTRESS. She was so much better than the actual winner of that year.

    DeGeneres in Finding Nemo is equal to Williams in Aladdin, two epic voice-overs that deserved awards’ attention. Outstanding!

    I would argue the Toy Story movies are Tom Hanks’ greatest performances.

    Ellen DeGeneres did win the Annie Award for Voice Acting in a Feature Production.

    I like to joke around that Peter O’Toole should have finally won a competitive acting Oscar for his work in Ratatouille. It’s a short appearance, but man does he have fun with the role.

    To me, Ellen Degeneres’ snub is one of the worst in recent years. She is one of the only reasons that I went and re-saw the film when it came out in 3D. The fact that she does not have an Oscar for that role is atrocious!

    They tell me that in the early days of broadcasting, entire families and groups of friends used to sit around the radio and listen intently to all kinds of programs. Some terrific actors abounded.

    I have my favorites, such as Peter O’Toole, but Trent mentions Antonio Banderas in Puss ‘n Boots. I wasnt expecting it, but he made me laugh out loud.

    This notion of how Oscar will lose “prestige” is puzzling. I’ve heard this argument time and again. My reaction is usually this:

    I’m a huge Oscar follower and fan, but why dont we get rid of every single category except Best Picture? The techs, actors, writers, and directors can go jump off a bridge. Imagine the prestige! O, and this Stunt category thing? Gotta go. Acknowledging them would bring the prestige of the Oscars down.

    There are now four Oscars for acting. There are only one for directing, producing, editing and photographing films, two for writing, all of which are much more important to the success of a movie than the acting (the success of which is usually when good at least half the result of other people’s work). To add a fifth category for acting would make the already bad imbalance worse.

    James Earl Jones won his honorary Oscar in part because of his voiceover work. This could happen in the future if a voice actor hasn’t already been honored.

    And because of the way the Oscars work, often the award would be a make up to someone who doesn’t already have an Oscar, or someone would lose because because s/he had already won. It would likely be even less merit related than most Oscars.

    For all these reasons, I am strongly against the idea.
