Gets Dissed by the
Scarlett Johansson just got dissed by the Golden Globes. The actress has been deemed ineligible for one of the trophies for her highly-praised role in the movie Her--because she never once appears on camera.
In the movie from Spike Jonze, Scarlett voices a computer operating system named Samantha. Joaquin Phoenix's character falls in love with her, even though she's not a real person. Scarlett has won plenty of accolades for the unusual part, including the Best Actress prize at the recent Rome Film Festival. But that wasn't enough for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the group who hands out the Globes.
Luckily, there's a silver (or should we say gold?) lining. Scarlett is still eligible for the Oscars and the SAG Awards. If she is nominated, she will make history as the first person nominated for a voice-only performance.
And if no award nods pan out for the 29-year-old, she's still got a lot going on: she recently got engaged to hunky French journalist and art director Romain Dauriac. Plus, girl's got hardware already--she won a BAFTA for her breakout role in Lost in Translation, which was directed by Spike's ex-wife Sofia Coppola.
