    No animated cast has ever been nominated at the SAG Awards as Best Film Ensemble. Is that because they aren’t eligible or because the voters are shortsighted on this issue?

    I believe the cast of “Inside Out” is as good as any ensemble I’ve seen this year and perfectly blended throughout the movie.

    Which animated cast of the past 20 years do you think was the best ensemble?

    I think I had a similar post a while back, but…

    Toy Story 3, Rango, The LEGO Movie and Inside Out were some of my favourite animated ensembles in recent memory.

    I absolutely think that animated ensembles should count. The ensemble cast of Inside Out is fantastic, and I even think the ensemble of Toy Story 3 was amongst 2010’s absolute best ensembles.

    If you allow animated features to be nominated for Ensable, then automaticly actors should be eliable for individual nominations. That outstanding ensamble or individual work should be recognised witouth making special categories at both SAG/GG/Oscars, because that greathenes in voice or motion capture work is not something that happens very often, so if ensable is that great nominate it. Personaly i only saw 2 voice over or motion capture performances that i would consider for awards – Andy Serkis in LOTR and Robin Williams in “Aladdin”.

    Only two? I’ve seen at least a dozen (not sure whether to include Kibbell and Serkis’ work in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes). But then again, I’m a huge animation geek and feel like one can be as good if not better in animation than most live-action movies.

    I think they should focus on adding an Ensemble prize for TV Movie/ Miniseries, since it is currently they’re biggest and most OBVIOUS oversight. But alas, they can only get 2 hours of airtime from TNT, so if that means great performances,voice-over OR live-action, so be it for now, I’m afraid. 🙁

    Just a small question, could animated T.V. shows contend at the Globes. I know that movies can’t, but could T.V. shows?

    I for one, find it ridiculous that the Globes have a category for Best Animated Feature and NOT for Best Animated Series!!! They should have added that category DECADES AGO, or at the latest when they added an Animated Feature category for movies. All these wasted years….. tick tock tick tock TICK TOCK, HFPA MEMBERS. >:(

    If They had an award for Outstanding Animated Ensemble Cast in a Motion Picture, here’s what I think they would be (cast in alphabetical order)

    • Anomalisa (Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tom Noonan, David Thewlis)
    • The Good Dinosaur (Jack Bright, A.J. Buckley, Sam Elliott, Frances McDormand, Raymond Ochoa, Anna Paquin, Marcus Scribner, Jeffrey Wright, Steve Zahn)
    • Inside Out (Lewis Black, Kaitlyn Dias, Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling, Richard Kind, Diane Lane, Kyle MacLachlan, Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith)
    • The Peanuts Movie (Troy Andrews, Rebecca Bloom, Anastasia Bredikhina, Francesca Angelucci Capaldi, Kristin Chenoweth, Alex Garfin, Noah Johnston, Bill Melendez, Hadley Belle Miller, Noah Schnapp, Venus Omega Schulthuis, Mariel Sheets, AJ Teece)
    • When Marnie Was There (Ava Acres, Kathy Bates, Ellen Burstyn, Geena Davis, Grey DeLisle, Catherine O’Hara, John C. Reilly, Kiernan Shipka, Hailee Steinfeld, Vanessa L. Williams)

    This is very interesting. Do you include the U.S. dub, or the original cast? If there were a better dub for international viewers, could that be submitted? Could multiple ensembles be nominated for the same film?

    Absolutely. Whatever voice acting loses in the physical craft of live action work has to be compensated for in the voiceover work. I’ve always found the notion that it’s a less noble craft of acting to be unfair and unfounded.

    I think SAG should explore adding a category for “non-traditional performance” or something so that they can incorporate the voice-acting work that actors regularly accomplish these days. This could include both animation, other voice-over work like Scarlett in Her or even mo-cap work like Andy Serkis does on a regular basis. If they had their own category, I don’t see why a whole cast of them shouldn’t be eligible for Best Ensemble, too.
