Honorary Clio Entertainment Award Recipient: Tom Kane

Tom Kane started doing voiceover work at age 15. By 24, he had recorded hundreds of commercials and was regularly landing National TV spots.

His tremendous vocal range led to a storied career in the entertainment industry.

Notable credits include voicing Yoda, Admiral Ackbar, Admiral Yularen and other characters for The Last Jedi, Rogue One, The Force Awakens and Solo and character work in The Avengers, Archer, Family Guy, The Powerpuff Girls, Wolverine and the X-Men, Scooby Doo, Shrek, Robot Chicken, Kim Possible, Foster’s Home, Iron Man, The Wild Thornberrys, and dozens of other animated series. In the Disney Parks, he’s the voice of the Monorail, a dozen rides and attractions, and is the narrator of Galactic Nights and the Grand Finale Spectacular that closes all Disney Parks every night.

Kane is in almost all the Star Wars and Call of Duty games, plus Fortnite, Star Trek, Final Fantasy, X-Men, Batman, Avengers, Lord of the Rings, and many more.

Kane was also an expert in voice-doubling. When talent wasn't available for post-production, testing or trailer recording, Tom filled in for actors such as Morgan Freeman, Anthony Hopkins, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Liam Neeson and others.

Kane has also been honored to announce five Academy Awards broadcasts on ABC: The 78th, 80th, 83rd and 84th, as well as serving as the opening announcer for the 90th.
