Beautiful Creatures starring "Academy Award Winner Emma Thompson...
"Academy Award Winner" Jeremy Irons and Viola Davis"
Couldn't they at least say "Academy Award Nominee" Viola Davis?
Why do they have to place such emphasis on the fact that Viola lost the award to me?
Is it racism?
At least they didn't say "SAG Award Winner."
They SHOULD have said "SAG Award winner who triumphed over Meryl Streep."

Clearly Viola took the part thinking it was going to be another hugely successful "Twilight-esque" franchise - but she and Jeremy, and Emma have so little to do. Emmy Rossum is the highlight of this dreary bore
After the failure of Won't Back Down maybe they decided to underplay Viola's role in the film.
Watching it, now. I"m a little surprised at how bad the production is considering the level of actors in it.
You know it's gonna be a shitty film when you see actors billed as "academy award nominees/winners" in the trailers or on the posters.
