Screen siren Scarlett Johansson is backing Imelda Staunton to win the Best Actress Golden Globe even though she is nominated in the same category.

Johansson, who is nominated for her role in A Love Song for Bobby Long, believes the British actress is far more deserving of the plaudits, for her critically-acclaimed part in Mike Leigh's controversial movie Vera Drake about illegal abortions in 1950's London.

The 20-year-old says, "I don't want the award. Imelda is unbelievable."
