DeaH: I remember seeing an interview with Sally Kellerman when she was filming the live-action Rocky and Bullwinkle movie. Kellerman was playing Natasha Fatale, and she asked June Foray, who was providing the voice of Rocky, what Natasha's motivation was. June Foray turned to her and said, in character as Natasha, "To get moose and squirrel."


A tip of the hat to someone that understands their craft!

Oh hell, now I'm imagining Rocky sounding like Talking Tina with similar lines.

She even looped Michael Brody for a few lines in 'JAWS'. Spielberg asked her to do the 'Talking Tina' voice in the dubbing booth

If you know that they're all the same voice actress, you can *kinda* notice similarities between characters. But you have to listen hard to hear them. Going in fresh, they're all totally different.

Well to be honest, Kojack had it coming.

Seems like her foray into voice-acting has been successful.

Says she was *nominated*, not that she won. Hope she wins.

Watch me pull an Emmy out of my hat!

First line and paragraph from the article-
Voice legend June L. Foray took home an Emmy for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program at the Creative Arts portion of the Daytime Emmys at the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

walrusonion: Wow June Foray never winning an emmy is more shocking then finding out Mark Hamill never got nominated for one as The Joker which I also found out today.



The various award groups have rarely shown love to the voice actors. In fact, there was an argument at one point whether prolific voice talent should even be offered membership to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Chris Rock's comments about voice over during the Oscars last year pretty much hit the nail on the head about how the Academy feels regarding voice over work.

I have to tip my hat to folks like Bob Bergen and June Foray who have been pretty active over the past few years to get the voice actors more recognition. If you've ever done it (be it animation, commercial, audio book, audio drama, or something other than as a legend of the living room) it can be unbelieveably demanding to get a good performance.

/and yeah, that's a rather old picture of June, but she's still a beauty

Thank you for everything, ma'am.

The Rocky and Bullwinkle catalog was one of the great things about Netflix when I first signed on. I loved it as a kid but really love it now that I realize what was flying over my head then.

/congrats June, well earned and overdue.

you know they wouldn't give Don LaFontaine a spot on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, right? That's why his wife contracted for one to be made with his name on it (sat in his studio).

/seriously... guy was arguably "the voice of the movie industry" from 1981 - 2008 and selection committee didn't want him.
//ironically, Mel Blanc has one but not for VO - it was for his work in radio broadcasting (let's be honest, they bent the rules, but VO acting? Not if you ask the committee).
//to be fair, the selection committee isn't the same as the Academy. But it's a bit of a common theme I've noticed.

Exactly! Get to the point!

walrusonion: Jay Ward, Rocky and Bullwinkle fans give the book, "The Moose That Roared" a read.


Seconded.

Also, congratulations, June Foray - it's about damn time the Academy recognizes you!

I wonder if this isn't going to change as "old" Hollywood dies out. I just imagine twenty-somethings in the 2040s complaining that the old timers in Hollywood like Jack Black and Seth Green never give enough credit to the foley artists.

I remember when June and I worked together ib "Tiptoe Through the Exploding Tulips" in 1946, Heim Schwarzman directing. I knew the kid had talent.
