No Peter Cullen? That proves God doesn't exist! Yet there is sudden evidence of God when I saw Joey King take the gold.

Is the child award for singing performance or voice over performance. Confusing to me.

@voiceactormom Curious, what made it confusing for you? None of the nominees for those categories sing much in those roles?

I love how Orion Acaba said he wants to be Benedict's Moriarty on his Facebook page. :-P

If I could vote for Troy Baker in every category I would, he blew me away this year! A year ago, I never heard of him, now he's one of my favorite voice actors.

So… Troy Baker. That is all.

Male VA: Troy Baker (This was his year).

Female VA: Tara Strong (Another fantastic year for Tara. One of the my fave VAs).

Breakthrough Male Actor: Benedict Cumberbatch (This one is obvious. He gave one of the best performances of the year in Hobbit).

Breakthrough Female Actor: Idina Menzel (Let It Go. That is all).

Best Male Child: Jeremy Shada (Friggin amazing as usual).

Best Female Child: Hana Hayes (This one is especially difficult. All of them are great, but it was between Ariel Winter and Hana. I had to go with Hana because her performance was far more emotionally demanding).

Male VA: Troy Baker (It was certainly a great year for him).

Female VA: Grey Delisle (Toss up between her and Laura because I loved her as Lucina).

Breakthrough Male: Orion Acaba (I was impressed by work in Fire Emblem and Phoenix Wright, ESPECIALLY Apollo Justice) I look forward to more of him.

Breakthrough Female: Idina Menzel (I haven't seen the whole movie yet but the song "Let It Go was more than enough to vote for her).

Male Child: Jeremy Shada (Always delivers)

Female Child: Ariel Winter.

I have so much trouble when picking a favorite male because all of them did so good this year and I adore each of them. I picked Steve though due to him having the most memorable roles I feel, though it was either Kevin, Dee, John, or Steve.

Female no contest Tara, but Grey and Kari were very good this year.

Breakthrough, thanks to Smaug Benedict wins no contest, though I think Aziz has done very good with what he's been given, as has Terry.

Child Male I think Zach has really shown his acting ability really well with Steven so I vote for him.

Ariel has been really the only one that I have seen anything of in the Child Female section so I vote for her.

Male VA: First instinct was to go for Dee Bradley Baker, but after looking through everyone's roles, I think Steve Blum had the better year.

Female VA: Grey DeLisle, though it was a toss-up between her and Jennifer Hale.

Breakthrough Male VA: Benedict Cumberbatch, hands down, no question.

Breakthrough Female VA: Toss-up between Draper, Byrnes and Menzel. I'll go with Idina.

Child Male: No opinion, though I suspect Zach Callison will take this.

Child Female: Hana Hayes.

That being said, I'm a bit sad that Aubrey Plaza didn't make the cut to Breakthrough Female VA.

I was going to make a "Where's the Troy Baker wins button?" joke, but every one of the voice actor of the year candidates put in some great work last year. I still think Troy Baker deserves it though; he was without a doubt the most talked about voice actor in 2013.

Yay, I get to vote this year! My choices:

Troy Baker - Toss up between him, JB Blanc, Eric Bauza, and Fred Tatasciore for me. But after The Last of Us, Arkham Orgins, and Loki, I think he deserved it.
Grey Delisle - Almost went with Tara, but though Grey had a slightly bigger year.
Benedict Cumberbatch - Who else?
Indina Menzel - LET IT GO! LET IT GO!
Jeremy Shada - Gotta go with Finn this year.
Hana Hayes - Despite her limited role in the game, I thought she was very memorable.

Zack Callison missing out on Breakthrough Voice Actor of the year is a pretty harsh snub. :(
