Note: You may have noticed that there are only three actresses nominated for leading actress in a voice-over role. That’s because female [leading] parts in animated movies weren’t there. Just like the field was bleak for leading actresses last year (for that, I assembled the best actresses portraying empowered women not dependent on men).

Winners to be revealed in ONE WEEK (on February 18, 2015!). Check back to see who/what movies takes home the Bobby James Award – who YOU selected in the fan-voted awards – and… who/what movie(s) I’m naming as my first-ever Oz Award recipient(s) of The Oz Award (it’s kind of like my Television Icon Award this year – which went to Betty White!).

If you haven’t voted, now’s your chance:
