(CelebNMusic247 News) Scarlett Johansson Disqualified From Golden Globes
It’s official since the 2014 Golden Globes have been announced and Scarlett Johansson performance was disqualified from the contenders.
Here’s the drop via EW:
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has ruled that Scarlett Johansson’s voice-only performance in Spike Jonze’s “Her” is not eligible for a nomination this year. As told to TheWrap by a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association,Johansson fell victim to a long-standing rule within the voting body that requires an actor to have a physical presence onscreen to secure a nomination.
In “Her,” Johansson plays Samantha, an operating system for a near-future computer device. Throughout the film, Samantha forms a relationship with Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), the nebbishy man who installed Samantha in the first place. (“Her,” which is being called “A Spike Jonze Love Story” in marketing materials, is out on Dec. 18.)
While Johansson did not wind up among the Golden Globe nominees when they’re announced earlier this morning (Dec. 13), she’s still eligible for nomination at the Academy Awards. She was NOT nominated by the Screen Actors Guild Awards for her performance in Her.
The 29-year-old took home Best Actress honors at the Rome Film Festival earlier in November, but Warner Bros. has her in the Best Supporting Actress category for stateside awards consideration.
Johansson has never received an Oscar nomination, but she has been honored with four Golden Globe nods, the most recent coming for 2005’s “Match Point.”
