The Top Ten

1 Amy Poehler (Joy) - Inside Out
2 Robin Williams (Genie) - Aladdin
3 Tom Hanks (Woody) - Toy Story

Joy was a terrible character voiced by a good actress in a good movie. She shouldn't be number 1. - 445956

Okay. Who's been voting on Woody 70 times in the last two days? - phillysports

He's number 1 hands down. If his name wasnt in the credits, no one would've known that it was him. Amazing.
