Scarlett Johansson in LV at the ‘Marriage Story’ LA premiere: basic or cute?

Scarlett Johansson at arrivals for MARRI...

Here are some photos from the LA premiere of Marriage Story. Scarlett Johansson wore Louis Vuitton and Laura Dern wore a bright, hideous Zimmerman gown. Don’t get me wrong, I hate ScarJo’s LV look too. It’s pretty much guaranteed that Scarlett will receive her first-ever Oscar nomination for this film, and it’s painful to me that we can’t even enjoy a good fashion tour from Scarlett as she goes through this Oscar campaign. Check our archives – Scarlett’s already worn so many bad gowns and she’s already been styled so poorly. Incidentally, I think Dern will probably grab a Supporting Actress nomination for this film too, at least that’s the buzz. Adam Driver didn’t attend this premiere, but I’m sure he’ll get nominated too.

As for all of the nominations and Oscar campaigns… as of this moment, I think Renee Zellweger is the “early frontrunner” for her Judy Garland drag. Critics f–king love Judy and it’s Renee’s big “comeback.” But I could see Scarlett sneaking in at the last minute, especially if her Oscar campaign goes well. The issue is that every time Scarlett opens her mouth, she says offensive sh-t about Woody Allen or transgender Japanese trees/people. I was checking out Gold Derby to see if there were any other actresses getting buzz right now… there’s Helen Mirren for The Good Liar, Saoirse Ronan for Little Women, Charlize Theron for her Megyn Kelly drag in Bombshell and… who knows. It doesn’t feel like the strongest year for actresses, honestly. So maybe Scarlett could pull it out.

PS… Yes, Scarlett truly wore lucite heels.

    I looked at Scarlet’s dress and thought- so it’s supposed to fit that way? The hip bulge is on purpose? The length, the janky slit, the mismatched top?
    Maybe stylists dislike her.
    B/c obviously, she is a beautiful woman.

  2. Cidy says:

    Both dresses look horrible. But I prefer Laura’s. If it wasnt that orange I would like it better.

    Scarlett’s face looks tigh, she also has too much highlighter under her eyes. I think it was a bit of a rush for her? Maybe? I think she got some botox done probably a few days ago and it hasn’t settled yet.

    • Chaine says:

      I thought maybe she had some injectables, either lips or marionette lines or both. Something doesn’t look right about her around the mouth.

  3. Tanguerita says:

    she looks like a clown interviewing for a job in a small-town circus. Has she been taking lessons in contouring from the Kardashian klan?

  4. Kendra says:

    You forgot Cynthia Erivo for best actress. The film didn’t get the best reviews (mainly just because the critics thought the film was safe and formulaic) but she did so she has been still pretty high on prediction lists. Harriet just opened to good numbers wide and got A+ cinemascore so that helps a lot if it the film gets popularity.

    It’s so odd Scarlett still hasn’t gotten noms. She has had a lot more artistic career than people often know and she is rather due one.

    Don’t know who will win however. If Renee and Charlize had not won already I would bet on one of them but I don’t know now.

    • Lightpurple says:

      Most of her best work was when she was much younger. She got into more action work and they don’t give nominations for that. They did campaign to get her a nomination for the voice work in Her, her role was as big as Joaquin Phoenix’s, you just didn’t see her; but the Academy wanted no part of it.

    • tcbc says:

      I don’t think Erivo has a shot. She isn’t well-liked enough in Black Hollywood circles (no surprise after her history of insulting, dismissive comments aimed at African Americans.) If they don’t host parties for her/push her forward, her “buzz” will disappear within the next six weeks as the other Oscar hopefuls get released.

    • minx says:

      Personally I think she’s a very average actor.

  5. Willa says:

    I like Scarlett’s dress. Her make-up is bad.

  6. Eliza says:

    I really like Scarlet’s dress.

    • Carol says:

      I like her whole look. The makeup is ok. I like Laura Dern’s dress too but I’m not understanding her shoe choice.

  7. SM says:

    Not as bad as some of her other looks. I don’t understand. She is beautiful and has a killer figure, why she perpetually looks from messy to mad to offensive? It shouldn’t be difficult to make her up really well for a red carpet.

    • NightOwl says:

      Well, at some point, one’s outer appearance starts to match what’s on the inside. Her defense of Woody Allen & her cloddish response to cultural appropriation are just a few hints as to what lies beneath.

  8. lana86 says:

    The dress is cool, but the makeup makes look rough!…

  9. A says:

    I love the dress, her make up looks horrible though. Scarlett is horrible person so I hope she gets snubbed next year, anyone who supports sexual predators deserves to fail in life.

  10. HK9 says:

    The dress is hideous and the lipstick has no relation to the outfit. She needs to start again.

  11. naomipaige99 says:

    I think it makes her look frumpy!

  12. dlc says:

    I actually like Scarlett’s look, it is definitely not boring, and Laura’s too. Unfortunately I don’t think the dumb and offensive stuff Scarlett has said will keep the old white men in the academy from nominating or voting for her. Might even help.

  13. Pita says:

    Not sure about this dress, she kinda looks like a christmas ornament

  14. Scal says:

    Boo to no Adam driver at the premiere. Only came looking for the hotness lol

    ScarJo looks like scarjo

  15. Mireille says:

    Scarjo’s dress is decent, except for that zipper with the ring at the top. Dern’s dress is a bit much — too red and too much pattern. I think a more simplistic design would have worked better on her. Not keen on Scarjo acting. I’ve always found her to be flat and monotone in her delivery. Never got the appeal on why she would qualify for any Oscar nom.

  16. Sam says:

    I really liked Laura Dern’s dress here. Of course, the lacy/hippie/boho vibe is kind of my thing so this checks all my boxes.

    The worst part of Scarlett’s look was her makeup. She has that bad too light highlighter under the eye that is poorly blended. Last night as we watched the news for coverage of our local election, the reporter had the same issue and even my husband noticed it. Women need to stop doing this to their faces.

  17. Rice says:

    I sorta like Scarlett’s look and I’ve no idea what Laura is wearing.

    Lupita’s role in Us has been getting some Oscar steam, but I suppose it’s wishful thinking by her fans. She’s been popping up at some interesting events, like she played her Us role in a Haunted Mansion during Halloween.

  18. Alina says:

    Scar is too thin, and it makes her face look hard. She’s gorgeous when she has a little roundness to her face to soften it up.

  19. Hildog says:

    Hey skin and body are flawless. Never really thought of ScarJo as a great beauty, but mashed together all of her features work.

  20. Yep says:

    Charlize Theron is going to win. That’s my bet.

    On topic: Scarlett Johansson is so cancelled for me. I just can’t with her obtuseness and arrogance.

  21. Soupie says:

    Scarlett: bad bad dress and makeup. The bodice is ok, but that purple whatever it is has got to go.
    Laura: the dress is hideous. Lose the neck and the cuffs and it’s not as bad. The styling is meh.

  22. softtoothbrush says:

    she is so frustrating. one of those ppl who just reads lines into a camera but gets by on being “hot”. also problematic out the ass
