Without appearing in a single frame of "Her," the Rome Film Festival awarded their Best Actress prize to Scarlett Johansson for her voice over performance as an artificially intelligent Operating System. This rather unique and early accolade for the science fiction romance was similarly praised by film critic Eric Kohn who stated that "Her" is "one of the best studio movies of the year."

Other films which earned Rome's top awards was "Dallas Buyers Club," which won the Audience Award and earned Matthew McConaughey the Best Actor prize. Scott Cooper’s "Out of the Furnace," starring Christian Bale, was named best first or second feature.
