The Annie Award for Voice Acting in a Feature Production (or Annie Award for Voice Acting in an Animated Feature Production) is an Annie Award awarded annually to the best animated feature film and introduced in 1998 rewarding voice acting for animated feature films.

History

Awards for voice acting were awarded at the Annie Awards previously to 1998, but the category was a catch-all for film and television. The award as it is now was divided in two separate sub-categories for males and females in 1998, 2000, and 2001. It was called Outstanding Individual Achievement for Voice Acting in an Animated Feature Production from 1998 to 2001,[1][2] and Outstanding Voice Acting in an Animated Feature Production from 2002 to 2004.[3]

At the 33rd Annual Awards, Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit was the only film that was nominated.[4]

So far, the only tie in this category happened in the 44th Annual Awards with both Auli'i Cravalho (Moana) and Jason Bateman (Zootopia) sharing the prize.[5]

On January 25, 2020, Josh Gad became the category's first two-time recipient, when the actor won for his vocal portrayal of the snowman Olaf in Frozen II, having previously won for voicing the character in 2013 for Frozen.[6]
