Scarlett Johansson Won an Award Last Night...For Her Voice

Posted By on Mon, Nov 18, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Scarlett Johansson has a very distinctive voice. Some might call it smoky, sexy or sultry. I think she sounds like she needs a glass of milk to wash down the peanut butter lodged in her throat, but that's just me.

Apparently the Rome Film Festival doesn't care about my opinion. Last night they awarded her the Best Actress prize for Her, the new Spike Jonze film also starring Joaquin Phoenix. Johansson plays Samantha, the voice of an artificial operating system that Phoenix falls in love with. Paul Reubens, Kevin Spacey and Peter Saarsgard could not be reached for comment.

From Indiewire:

Without appearing in a single frame of "Her," the Rome Film Festival awarded their Best Actress prize to Scarlett Johansson for her voice over performance as an artificially intelligent Operating System. This rather unique and early accolade for the science fiction romance was similarly praised by film critic Eric Kohn who stated that "Her" is "one of the best studio movies of the year."
