Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson have a chance of scoring Oscar nominations this year for their performances in Dallas Buyers Club and Her, respectively. So now, watch them speak corny dialogue to one another in an ad for Dolce & Gabbana perfume, directed by Martin Scorsese, who also probably wants a nomination for The Wolf of Wall Street, now that you mention it.

"I like your dress," McConaughey says, while driving a shiny sports car through black-and-white New York. "It likes you back," Johansson coos, her eyes downcast. "We're getting a lot of money for this, right?" McConaughey turns back to her. Oh, sorry, scratch that last line. 

Okay, so it's gorgeously shot, and the dialogue is consciously trying to skewer old movie tropes, but, damn, if it's not sort of hilarious to watch big famous stars increase their visibility any way they can during awards season.
