Second most twittered comment about the female VoiceOver for the Oscars Sunday night:
“Did she really say ‘Barber’ Streisand?” (she did)
That female voiceover for the Oscars, BTW is Gina Tuttle. I had not heard of her, but thought she did a pretty good job with nice energy.
HERE is a link with more about Gina.
And didja hear about the SNAFU Jeff Bridges got himself into with one of his best voiceover clients? Hyundai was all set to run a rash of spots on the Oscars, but was turned-down for a conflict-of-interest. Read HERE and HERE all the details. Hyundai ran the ads anyway, but used several other celebs as substitutes for Bridges. Hey, Hyundai…how ’bout trying out some PROFESSIONAL voice-actors??? Hmmm?
Finally, did you notice for the first time in over 20 years presenters were allowed to say: “…and the WINNER is…” instead of that contrived phrase: “…the Oscar goes to…”
I’m so glad they made that change. If you happened to have missed the Oscars, what’s the first question you ask. Uh-huh….”Who WON”?
