she was not the cute one in Ghost World.

Thora Birch much hotter than stock pretty Scarlett.

"What's a Golden Globe?" should be the whole of the article.

Well Scarlett Johansson has never been known for her looks.

I would like to get to know Scarlet's Golden Globes.

Read the plot of the film - a man who falls in love with the voice of his smartphone navigator UI?  Big Bang Theory already did that.

Not sure how I'll fap to this film, listening to her but looking at fugly.

People won't make films if they know they won't get awards for them? Maybe the Golden Globes can give out a participation ribbon.

Blah blah Scarlet's globes.

Actually, TFA makes a very good point - studios will risk unconventional films if they think it sets up one or more of the actors for nomination of an award, because it gives increased leverage in marketing. The author is pointing out (though she could have done a better job) that if the awards committes are going to put up senseless, arbitrary rules that exclude entire categories of films - and change those rules capriciously - that the studios are less likely to take risks and simply churn out conventional drivel instead.

You did a better job of conveying the point of that article in two sentences than the author did in six paragraphs. Full point.

This is more of a "voice actors problem" where the best in the business of cartoons and CGI get no respect for their acting ability because they are only heard and not seen.  The article mentioned Andy Serkis being denied Academy Award nominations for Best Actor because voice acting apparently isn't legitimate.

And that's where I think it's all bupkiss: If Holly Hunter and Marlee Matlin can win without uttering a word, and Judy Dench can win for 6 total minutes of screen time, then voice/CGI actors should be equally eligible.  Causing emotional impact is worthy of recognition, and indicates a high level of skill if a performer can do it without all the 'tools' in their kit.

No more films? I'm OK with that. There's a lot of old ones to watch.

I"m pretty sure those are called 'Golden Globes awards'.

And Lottery! did something similar in the early 1980s, but it wasn't a navigator UI. One of characters fell in love with the voice in the rental car they were using. He would push buttons just to hear it talk.

I remember this happening decades ago, when Robin Williams was up for Best Actor in Alladin, and they deemed that a voice role wasn't eligible.
 
2013-11-28 02:43:37 PM  
Huh.  I always found her voice to be one of her weaker qualities.  Yet somehow she manages to land a voice role.

Maybe she sounds better when she's not on Valium.

Obligatory.

"Scarlett is a peach. Like when you eat a peach that is so ripe you can push your thumb through the skin. The juice runs down your chin and drips onto your chest, and the place in between your fingers gets so sticky you have trouble separating them. The next day, even after you wash your hands, you can still smell the sweet juice on your skin and, if no one is watching, you lick your fingers and the memory of that sweet fruit on your tongue floods back. Scarlett is like that."

You mean someone who wasn't actually acting in a movie doesn't get nominated for an acting award?  And sorry, voice acting is not acting.  If you can do it from home in your pajamas and an ISDN line, you shouldn't be compared to someone who has to be in costume and physically act.

Because she's easily the dumbest "pretty" person since the chick from Hunger Games, OK??! A box of rocks doesn't have her tits or ass, but are otherwise far more socially relevant, OK?  Or just keep saying looks do not matter and turn off the wind turbine. OK?!?!

Yeah!  I doubt a full-length film with great actors and an amazing director could improve on Big Bang Theory much.

Those are better examples and equally valid.  Well put.

If your examples of 'dumbest' include Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Lawrence, I think the problem must be with you, not them.

You'd think, then, they'd just create a "Best Actor/Actress, Voice" category or some shiat.

I just realized: Scarlet Johansson is a younger clone of Helen Mirren.
