“I Am Groot” Voice Acting Award 2019

iamgroot

The “I Am Groot” Voice Acting Award goes to the best voice actor/motion capture performance of the year.  This has been becoming more and more important to the film industry and it is not seen as just animation any longer.

In the short time we have been presenting this award, we have given this to the characters Moana, Caesar, Thanos, and Genie.

It was a tough choice this year.

Previous Winners:  Auli’i Cravalho, Andy Serkis, Robin Williams (honorary), Josh Brolin

2019

#4.  Josh Brolin- Thanos (Avengers: Endgame).  Infinity War was Thanos’s movie.  Here he was still epic, but in a different way.  Brolin is still fantastic.

#3.  Tom Hanks- Woody (Toy Story 4).  The fourth installment of the Toy Story franchise was Woody’s story, and his ultimate fate.  It may not have been as great as the previous Toy Story movies, but that did not detract from Hanks’ top of the line performance.

#2.  J.K. Simmons-Klaus (Klaus).  Klaus was a surprise at Netflix, but it is one of the best animated films of the year.  That is thanks, in part, to a great job from J.K. Simmons in the title role.

And the “I Am Groot” Voice Over Award winner for 2019 is….

#1.  Ryan Reynolds- Pikachu (Detective Pikachu).  This film may not have been hugely successful, but a big part of what made this movie awesome was Ryan Reynolds and his witty banter.  He made this movie worth seeing.
