Johansson Slams Oscars

Teen star SCARLETT JOHANSSON has slammed the ACADEMY AWARDS for being "frivolous."

The LOST IN TRANSLATION actress, 19, won a Best Actress BAFTA on Sunday (15FEB04) for her performance in the SOFIA COPPOLA comedy, and values the ORANGE BRITISH ACADEMY FILM AWARDS as more respective than the American OSCARS.

Johansson says, "BAFTA recognise films that wouldn't have been considered in the states.

"The Oscars are... well... different. More frivolous."

The American beauty was omitted from nominations at this year's Oscars, but her co-star BILL MURRAY is up for Best Actor at the 29 February (04) event.
