Scarlett Johansson's Voice Role in 'Her' Is Not Eligible for Golden Globes

November 27, 2013 06:04:38 GMT


Scarlett Johansson's performance in "Her" is out of contention at the Golden Globe Awards, Entertainment Weekly learns. Contrary to the Screen Actors Guild and the Academy Awards which both allow her to compete in the supporting actress category, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association won't be voting on her for the upcoming nomination.

Actors who lend their voice or give performance with the help of motion capture are overlooked by awards organization, partly due to argument that such role is a team work that relies not just on the actor but also visual effects artists and animators. Andy Serkis who played CGI-ed Gollum in "The Lord of the Rings" and Caesar in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" suffered the snub in the past years.
