I'm still sort of annoyed that Joaquin Phoenix got ignored during that award season. He was excellent in Her. So different than his typical performances.

It's a bit difficult, just because you don't have women have as deep or as gravelly a voice unless they've been chain-smoking cigarettes in between nonstop whiskey drinking for a few decades.

But I'd probably pick a British woman, at least to American audiences it probably sounds more authoritative and important. Helen Mirren is a pretty good choice.

For some reason my mind went to Tilda Swinton. Probably cause of her intimidating sophistication. I don't know if shes ever narrated anything.

I'm not a fan of Shohreh. I haven't heard her voice acting, but she's pretty monotone in a lot of her life action.

Another vote for Scarlett. I completely fell in love with her character in Her, and well, she was just a voice.
I'm not sure she has as wide a spectrum as Morgan Freeman of course, but I can't think of anybody that can.
