    Ellen DeGeneres for Finding Nemo. I thought she was worthy of a win for that “I’m home” monologue alone. She won’t be considered, but I would even throw in Amy Poehler for Inside Out.

    I’m not going to deny that DeGeneres wasn’t good in Nemo, but I feel that the whole performance is kinda overrated. Maybe it’s because I think that Ellen really isn’t that funny or that she was kinda annoying in Finding Nemo, but whatever. I don’t hate the performance and I get why people do like it, but I wasn’t amazed by it.

    All my money* to Scarlett Johansson for Her. Thank you.
     
    *Saves some chips for James Gandolfini for Where the Wild Things Are.

    I totally forgot about James Gandolfini in Where the Wild Things Are. I’m gonna add him to mine!

    I think I would literally die if that actually happened.

    Robin Williams in “Aladdin”, at least for me, must be greatest voice over performance ever.

    Agree with all of the above mentions.

    Have to add the late great Peter O’Toole as Anton Ego in Ratatouille. Actually, the entire cast is fabulous.

    Also, Ed Asner for Up; also a terrific cast.

    Eleanor Audley is no slouch either, as Maleficent in the ’59 Sleeping Beauty.
