I thought Willingham's Two-Face should've won, so seeing him win Staff's Male VA of the Year is satisfactory. ;)

I'm curious; do the judges mind sharing some of the various criteria they use to pick the winners of these categories year by year? I'd be interested in seeing your thought process when distinguishing which of the various exceptional voice talent you nominated stands above the pack.

Matthew Mercer's Shigure was nothing short of incredible IMHO, it was tough to choose between him and Travis honestly.

I personally went with Eden Riegel as "best actress" really, mostly for her performance as Diana.

Darin De Paul and Rena Strober were easily my choices for breakthrough actor/actress, haha.

Some tough choices on best actor and actress, but I think I'm gonna have to give it to the Willinghams. Travis really wowed me as Harvey Dent and I really liked him as Garon too. I'm probably biased since I pretty much love everything Laura does, but this year was like a greatest hits of some of her most iconic roles. And her Catwoman was something else.

Best breakthrough actor has gotta be Darin De Paul. He may be new to VO, but he sure doesn't sound like it. Wonderful job as Ardyn.

I have to admit I'm not very familiar with most of the breakthrough actresses this year. I did like Rena Strober as Azura so I'll toss a vote her way.

Definitely giving my vote to Rena Strober for Breakthrough Voice Actress of the Year. She was fantastic as Akane and Azura.
