Scarlett Johansson may be known for her amazing body, but it turns out that fantastic figure may be distracting from her true potential!
ScarJo plays a Siri-type computer operating system voice that make Joaquin Phoenix - and apparently critics - fall in love with her.
If she were to be nominated, the nod would make Oscar history; no one has ever received a nomination for a voiceover performance. Andy Serkis was famously snubbed ten years ago for his groundbreaking performance as Gollum in the Best Picture-winning The Lord Of The Rings.
But the film's producer Megan Ellison seems optimistic about ScarJo's chances. She wrote on Twitter:
"Scarlett is eligible, deserves the recognition, and we are going to campaign for her."
We can't wait to see if she gets the nod! Will this be the beginning of a new trend? Or will the Academy continue to give precedence to physical presence?
One thing is for sure- if Scarlett does win an Oscar, no one can say she got by on her looks!
