She has been so overnominated. Junebug was really the only one she deserved.January 16, 2014 at 7:37 pm #134399
I agree, but others will give you the blues for this thread.January 16, 2014 at 7:56 pm #134400
We certainly will. Ok I’ll let you off for Doubt, but the others were richly deserved. She may well be the least showy and most nuanced actress in mainstream movies.January 16, 2014 at 8:02 pm #134401
I think she deserves five noms but for Junebug, Enchanted, Doubt, The Fighter and American HustleJanuary 16, 2014 at 8:03 pm #134402
The only one she didn’t deserve was for Doubt. No one in that mess did.January 16, 2014 at 8:05 pm #134403
You really think she didn’t deserve it in The Master? What a brilliant performance.
Haven’t seen Doubt so can’t comment.January 16, 2014 at 8:13 pm #134404
Have you guys seen The Master (^notwithstanding)? Great work. I’m no Adams fanboy but she definitely deserved that one.January 16, 2014 at 8:22 pm #134405
I agree with the other comments, The Master was a brilliant performance, and a well-deserved nomination.January 16, 2014 at 8:35 pm #134406
Adams’s performance in the Master is so subtle and unique that it’s easily underrated – glad to see passion for it here. I would’ve given her the win (yes, over Anne Hathaway!)January 16, 2014 at 8:43 pm #134408
She should have 3 Oscars by now.
Junebug – 2005
Doubt – 2008
The Master – 2012January 16, 2014 at 11:55 pm #134409
I personally really enjoy Amy’s performances, she’s quite a good actress. What I mean is if she was nominated twice or even three times you can call it a fluke but five?January 17, 2014 at 3:24 am #134411
Yes aside from her Doubt nomination she really deserved all of them, she was fantastic in all of them and I’m thrilled she got in for American Hustle.January 17, 2014 at 3:52 am #134412
A reasonably agreeable performer who to date hasn’t done anything worthy of an Oscar nominaton, though The Fighter was as near as she same for me.
I did also like her in the Muppets films, Julie & Julia and Enchanted. None Oscar worthy of course but quite entertaining in their own right.
