Talking 2017 Category and Nomination Discussion

Hello BTVA'ers!

It's that time of year again - halfway through 2017 and we have a good idea of what the year has in store for us in the world of voiceover.

This thread is where you can discuss and make note of voice actors and performances from the 2017 year (January 1st 2017 through December 31st 2017) from television series, specials, feature films, direct-to-video titles, video games and shorts.

Some of these categories may change, be removed, others added, etc., by the time the awards actually role around in spring/early summer 2018. We like to hear what kind of roles and titles the community found impressive throughout the year. What shows had great ensembles? Who gave breathtaking performances? What characters really shone this year? Let us know!

(Please note that any discussion here will not necessarily have a direct effect or bearing on the awards, but is primarily a fun discussion topic you can deal with in the meantime) and give us an idea of what is resonating with the BTVA community.

(As always, the anime awards will be held separately so anime performances do not count toward the main awards)

Will these awards take place around the same time next year the awards for 2016 took place, and will the anime awards discussion take place?

First question is answered in the first post. There probably won't be an anime awards discussion thread.

I understand this is for next year's awards, but do you have any idea as to when the 2016 anime awards will be held? I'm assuming you're waiting for certain titles to be given a home release, perhaps?

While it's not up yet, Syberia 3 would make an interesting entry to the video game ensemble category, as it's Paris meets New York, and that's quite unusual. Then again, unusual isn't necessarily a defining quality.
