Voices.com's Voice Girl dressed for the OscarsIn a world where an Oscar category for voiceover performance is nonexistent, five voice artists pour out their talent in an effort to make history!

If you think that voice actors who perform in animated films should be formally recognized with an award by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, be sure to share this page and also spread the PSA!

Learn more about this movement now in today's VOX Daily.

Voices.com would like to thank Scott Fortney (voice and audio production), Lori Taylor (voice), Andy Boyns (voice), Doug Warner (voice) and Pablo Hernandez (executive producer, copywriter) for sharing their talent and for bringing their passion to this effort.

Here's a link where you can download the PSA:

    Yes! Right away I think of recent films like Earth, Oceans and Africa...or WALL-E, or even Holly Hunter as Mrs. Incredible!

      Heck yeah... they work hard and they make the animated movies believable! Without the voices, there's no story! PLEASE acknowledge them!
