Q&A: Friday Nights,Voice Work,Underseen Gems

You asked some questions.I'm finally answering them.You know how this works.Please do chime in in the comments.The whole reason we do the column is for participatory flavor and that includes a pinch of you!Our Question of the Week which isFriday Night Lightsthemed is,annoyingly,from "Anonny"(how about a name?) so he/she gets to choose our next banner topic!(And how about our current "joy"banner.I put Jessica Lange in it for the first time and no one notices!?)

What is it,a crime?Is it a crime to look at Lange?

Pat Carroll recording UrsulaJAMES: Does the trend now that animated films only use "names"for voice work mean that we'll never see the likes of Pat Carroll again?

That would be among the greatest of cinematic tragedies.Unlike seeminglymanyTFE readers,though,I don't actually share an interest in voice actors getting Oscar nominations.But as with motion capture and the much discussed pioneering case of Andy Serkis,I do think this is where Oscar is really dropping the ball in terms of never giving out special achievement statues.I can't even remember when the last one was -- was it forToy Story(1995) before there was the Animated Feature category?Pat Carroll's work asUrsulais the single greatest voice performance in the history of animation.(Team Experience shamefully put her in only 3rdwhen we took a poll)

The days of specialized voice talent getting prime opportunities like that are gone but there is hope: Pixar uses celebrities sometimes but they don't rely on them exclusively the way Dreamworks and other lesser studios do.And sometimes their "celebrities"aren't exactly household names so they aren't using them for advertising purposes,but because they genuinely love the voice.Wasn'tRichard Kinda great choice for "Bing Bong"inInside Out?

DEBORAH: If you could choose one lesser-known movie each from the 70s,80s,and 90s that everyone should see,what would they be (and why)?
