Are the ones that I voted for supposed to be red? Or did this poll not work like that?

Already casted my votes so to simply (does contain spoilers):

Best vocal ensemble: The Garden of Words. Acting felt like I was watching live action rather than an animated feature.

Best male lead: Patrick Poole. It hurt I didn't vote for Kevin T Collins. Maybe he could voted for the final Berserk movie next time. If Kevin T Collins did more singing as Griffith then it would have been an easy vote.

Best female lead: Maggie Flecknoe. Talk about the ideal casting choice for the character and she delivered in her performance.

Best supporting male: Odd choice but I went with Mike Pollock as Adon. To reprise a comedic character and to make me laugh with Adon's goofy but cunning ways deserves praise.

Best supporting female. No votes because couldn't decide.

Was it something I said? Too bad BVTA had to censor most of it.

There is my opinion specifically designed for this occasion:

BEST VOCAL ENSEMBLE IN AN ANIME MOVIE/SPECIAL - Definitely, it's Studio Ghibli's ''From Up On Poppy Hill'' (2013)!

BEST MALE LEAD VOCAL PERFORMANCE IN AN ANIME MOVIE/SPECIAL - Of course, he is Scott McNeil!

BEST FEMALE LEAD VOCAL PERFORMANCE IN AN ANIME MOVIE/SPECIAL - Of course, she is Maggie Flecknoe!

BEST MALE SUPPORTING VOCAL PERFORMANCE IN AN ANIME MOVIE/SPECIAL - Of course, he is R. Bruce Elliott!

BEST FEMALE SUPPORTING VOCAL PERFORMANCE IN AN ANIME MOVIE/SPECIAL - Of course, he is Jamie Lee Curtis!

So there is the great result:

HOLLYWOOD & VANCOUVER - TEXAS 3:2

Definitely, Hollywood and Vancouver voice acting schools will surely defeat the bad Texas school of voice acting in anime for this occasion!

How about that?

Vocal Ensemble- Giving this to One Piece on the account that Funimation got Sean Schemmel and Scott McNeil into the dub. And they were fantastic.

Male Lead- Scott McNeil's Shiki for me. But it was close between him, Kevin T. Collins and Tony Oliver.

Female Lead- Carrie Keranen never disappoints as Casca.

Male Support- Toughest category here. Went with Mike Pollock's Adon. But Doug Erholtz and Sean Schemmel were too good as well.

Female Support- Tough choice between Christine Marie Cabanos and Michelle Newman. But I only slightly prefer Christine.

I make it a point each year to watch every title that comes out from all the major companies so I can fully experience each dub and individual performance within them. I was only ever truly impressed maybe on a few accounts with dubs & performances from the last year. The one dub & performance that stands heads and shoulders above the rest of the competition is Patrick Poole and The Garden of Words dub. Its the best work from Steven Foster from last year outside of the excellent Kamisama Dolls, Kids on the Slope & Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere II & Nyan Koi! dubs. Foster proves each year with his casting choices and solid dubs that he is one of the most talented ADR Directors in this industry by far. Its a rarity to have Sean Schemmel in a Funimation dub that isn't Dragonball Related he is my favorite out of that category. The best line from Dr. Indigo is missing from the clip where he yells at Zoro that he is going to melt his bones. I find Christine Marie Cabanos to be a decent actress but she is not even remotely in the same league as her peers in the female supporting category. If it was my decision she wouldn't be among them. I enjoyed almost every dub I watched last year in some shape or form but a majority of the performances in all these categories are simply borderline average at best many of the performances lack that special gravitas that takes an ordinary performance and makes it significantly more grand in the process of everything.

Lots of a good stuff here. It'd be easy to just go with the ones I've watched, but some of these I really dig. Not going to vote yet, though. Here's what I liked.

Berserk II, Wolf Children, and (from the sound of it) Garden of Words
Kevin T. Collins and Peter Poole (haven't watched the movie, but that clip was pretty awesome)
Colleen Clinkenbeard, Carrie Keranen and Maggie Flecknoe
Sean Schemmel, Jerry Russell and David Matranga
Jamie Lee Curtis, Alison Viktorin, and Lara Woodhull

My picks:
ONE PIECE: STRONG WORLD - This is an experienced cast you can depend on, and they've never been better. Their devotion to their characters is obvious in this film.
PATRICK POOLE - Another voice I wasn't expecting to like until I heard the clip. This was a very emotional performance, and he didn't miss a beat. I haven't seen the film, but I was really invested in Poole's voice.
MAGGIE FLECKNOE - Another performance that came out of nowhere. I'm not that familiar with Maggie's work, but I'm impressed by this voice. It sounded very calm and collected, but also very real. It's probably one of the more natural deliveries I've heard in anime. I need to check out that movie now. It sounds interesting, and by the sounds of it, the voice acting was absolutely superb.
SEAN SCHEMMEL - I had a good idea what to expect from Schemmel as this character, but nowhere did I imagine a voice so wacky, so over-the-top, and so evil. It was uncomfortable (in a good way in this case) to listen to, and really effective.
JAMIE LEE CURTIS - You can always count on Jamie for excellent work no matter the acting medium, but I have never been disappointed with any type of performance from her. With that said, her performance in From Up On Poppy Hill really caught my attention, and surpassed my expectations. She already had the perfect motherly voice, but she sounds so real here, and not just as an average mother, but one with a past, with many stories to tell looking back on fascinating memories. Seeing footage of her in the booth recording this part really showed how devoted she really was to her craft, yet she remained such a natural. That movie was really lucky to have her.

In the past there have always been clumsy individuals who claim they accidentally voted for a nominee against their will while attempting to listen to the sound clip.

*Make sure your mouse cursor is directly above the play button

Or I suggest you listen to clips while LOGGED OUT and then LOG IN when you're ready to vote. Have fun!
