Ellen DeGeneres Dory ("Finding Nemo") The popular talk-show host hasn't had great luck in feature films -- remember the dreadful "Mr. Wrong"? -- but she delivers a heartwarming performance in the 2002 Oscar-winning Pixar/Disney blockbuster as a good-hearted blue tang suffering from short-term memory loss who helps a clown fish named Marlin (Albert Brooks) look for his missing son, Nemo. DeGeneres even was named best supporting actress by the Chicago Film Critics Assn. for her work.
