      I'm really surprised that Eleanor Audley hasn't been made one, considering she is one of the classic Disney Actors.

      Out of this years' recipients, the one that was long overdue was Ming-Na Wen. During the 2011 awards, nearly every actress who voiced or sang as a 90s/2000s princess got an award, except Wen. Even weirder, Lea Solonga, who was the singing voice of Mulan, got an award that year.
