The vocally dexterous are:
Teri Hatcher - Mel Jones / Other Mother - 'Coraline'
She is warm, and then oh so creepy. Some of the best work of her career.
Philip Seymour Hoffman - Max Jerry Horovitz - 'Mary & Max'
Hysterical line delivery. His final line chokes you up something fierce.
Anna Faris - Sam Sparks - 'Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs'
Like the best of her comedy, her Sam is funny, ditzy yet so warm.
Dawn French - Miss Miriam Forcible - 'Coraline'
Only one of the best comedic actresses could pull off such phenomenal voice work.
Shame I do not have a clip.
Jenifer Lewis - Mama Odie - 'The Princess and the Frog'
She sounds like she is having an absolute ball doing this. The energy is infectious.
Jordan Nagai - Russell - 'Up'
So funny and real. The line readings are hysterical, and the touching moments are heart breaking.
