Scarlett Johansson Ineligible at Golden Globe Awards for 'Her'

Critics have been hailing Scarlett Johansson‘s voice performance in the new movie Her, but she will not be getting a Golden Globe for her work as she has been deemed ineligible for the awards show.

The 29-year-old actress has been considered a frontrunner for a nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category this awards season.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has decided they will not consider Scarlett‘s work in Her, but her live action work in the movie Don Jon is still eligible, according to Variety.

The nominations for the Golden Globes will be announced on December 12.

DO YOU THINK Scarlett Johansson should be eligible for her voice performance?

    A Fish Called Wanda look alike anybody? Set in London, England of course. The Americano dude does look like a physically transfigured James Dean.

    She hasn’t been considered a frontrunner at all.

    I don’t see why she should be.
    I mean actors who’ve voiced animated characters have never been nominated even though it is a craft in its own.

    Who was considering her a front runner best supporting actor. For a role that she is just doing a voice! I have not heard anyone say that before. Should they start letting all the voice over actors for the animated movies be up for actor awards! Maybe they should have a voice over category if it is an issue.

    The HFPA is citing a rule it doesn’t actually have. You can read the organization’s official criteria here: http://www.goldenglobes.org/rules-71/MP-Rules-71st.pdf

    As you can see, nothing specifies that an actress can’t be nominated for a supporting role in an animated film. Lead performances must be given in a drama, musical or comedy but not supporting work. The Globes have given out awards for Best Animated Film since 2007. Animated film is a category the Foreign Press recognizes along with drama, musical and comedy. If its rules don’t specify which of its categories a supporting performance must be given in, it follows the performance can be given in any of the recognized categories, right? So, if the rules allow for recognition of voicework in an animated film, why not voicework in a drama?

    So the HFPA is disqualifying Johansson’s extremely award-worthy performance on the basis of a rule it really doesn’t even have, a mistake which should be corrected.
