This is another award that I pushed back to wait for Soul to come out just in case. There is a runner-up from that film.
Now remember, a voice over may not necessarily just be an animated film. This includes live action with motion capture or an animation/live action combination.
Previous Winners: Auli’i Cravalho (Moana), Andy Serkis (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Robin Williams (Aladdin- honorary), Josh Brolin (Avengers: Infinity War), Ryan Reynolds (Detective Pikachu)
Runners-Up: I already mentioned that Soul had one so I will place Jamie Foxx here to kick it off. He was excellent in the role. Matt Ryan voicing John Constantine in Justice League Dark. Matt Ryan is one of the most popular version of Constantine. Tom Holland‘s voice work in Onward is great. He has done a couple of animated movies now over the last few years. Sean Bean‘s Wolfwalkers was the animated film of the year, but his work was some of the best. Ben Schwartz was Sonic the Hedgehog and the voice was great.
2020 Winner is…
Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian)
A perfect example of a voice over that is not animated. Pedro Pascal is mostly not in the armor during filming but we always here his voice. This season of The Mandalorian has been top notch and Pascal showed remarkable character growth as his connection grew with Grogu.
