    Eddie Murphy probably came the closest to getting an actual nomination for his voice-over performance in Shrek, simply because his Bafta nod showed an abnormal amount of industry support. I can’t freaking believe that the Oscars haven’t wised up, accepted the fact that no voice-over acting will ever get nominated against live acting, and finally create the most needed non-existing category, “Best Performance by an Actor in a Voice-over role.” Men, women, and non-binary performers would all compete against each other since anyone can voice any character, depending on their range and talent, regardless of their actual gender.

    For your Goldderby Film Awards consideration: Isle of Dogs for every category, especially Music Score for Alexandre Desplat!

    Holly Hunter as Elastigirl is up there.

    I agree. Her voice work in that role is so memorable to me that I can pretty much instantly recognize her voice anywhere (which makes it kinda strange to me that she won her Oscar for a non-speaking role).

    I like the article’s top three (Williams, DeGeneres, Murphy), but the author severely underrated Eartha Kitt’s performance in The Emperor’s New Groove; it should be either just above or just below Brad Bird’s work on The Incredibles. And, if we’re being honest, James Earle Jones’s Vader belongs in the top two.

    As for the Oscars creating a “voice work” category… I think it would be cool, but I also think it would be just about totally monopolized by Disney films (as this list would indicate) and lots of people would complain about that.

    One of my favorite voiceover roles in recent years was Sigourney Weaver’s cameo in Finding Dory. I found it absolutely hilarious for some reason.

    Ashley Tisdale deserved an Emmy for voicing Candace Flynn and that’s all I’ll say.

    I would say Tom Cruise in Oblivion, it was the best monologue I’ve ever heard!

    Steve Carell over both Douglas Rain and James Earl Jones? Heresy. They should be in the top three.

    Also, as expected, Philip Seymour Hoffman’s excellent performance in Mary and Max was overlooked. That film needs more love.

    A lot of the choices I am not really a big fan of, but it’s really nice for you to mention a lot of these choices.

    Even though Robin Williams is probably the logical choice, I will always be partial to Eddie Murphy in Shrek, the best supporting performance of 2001.

    Amy Poehler should be ranked higher than Eddie Murphy.
