    The Academy actually loves Winslet and would nominate her in a heartbeat for any heavy dramatic role she does, much like Cate Blanchett. Chastain doesn’t have the same type of attraction, she has to be nominated everywhere or be the frontrunner.

    Am I the only one who thinks Chastain basically played the same character in Zero Dark Thirty/Most Violent Year/Miss Sloane….

    It’s not like she gives bad performances it’s just that they feel the same. She was worthy for Zero Dark Thirty though.

    It’s weird because I really liked her in The Help, but so much of her recent acting just feels… I don’t know, so chilly and distant, which I can expect if the role demands it, but yeah yeah blah blah Adams Family circlejerk, but Amy Adams has a much more inviting and audience-intimate style.

    She’s done better than ZD30 where Bigelow rolling out scene-stealer and scene-stealer undercut her ability to have a solid and dominating presence on screen. Next to Jason Clarke she was just so wan.

    Amy Adams has that face and persona that her fans want to protect. She has a very delicate vibe about her and every time I see her interviews, I see her as a sweetheart. And she always looks so meekful in her roles, sometimes in different ways that works and other times that are just repetitive (Big Eyes and American Hustle). I know people always complain that Natalie has a constant crying face yet Adams herself has that victim voice. That “please protect me” stature in her roles. It’s easy to feel for her.

    Amy Adams isn’t overhyped as human being, but as an actress, it’s the other way around. Lol she’s a great actress, amazing in fact, just a little over praised.

    Since when were we talking about anyone being overhyped as a human being? I don’t think Amy Adams is overpraised. She has enough roles to warrant her 5 Oscar nominations. Her Doubt/American Hustle Oscar nominations should’ve been for Enchanted and Arrival.

    If we’re being honest, Amy is a tremendous actress and has amazing versatility. She’s hard to typecast and has deservedly gotten 5 nominations for Oscar glory over 8 years. It’s just… there’s something about her fans that pisses me off, and I don’t think it’s the fact that they “overhype” her because they don’t do it often and when they do its usually by her stan level fans. I think it’s just because they’re willing to defend her to the death and launch barrages of insults at you even if you make a slight criticism of her. I don’t think she’s on the level of Cate Blanchett or anything, but I think she has the potential for that.

    I think a lot Amy Adams stans are just mad that she didn’t get nominated for “Big Eyes” and “Arrival” and that’s why they can be so sensitive.

    And it’s kind of warranted to some extent, because she really deserved the nomination for “Arrival”.

    Adams’ lone nod without coattails is her first for Junebug. And her BS work in American Hustle knocking Emma Thompson out of the final line up is unforgivable.

    I am probably the biggest Arrival Stan in this forum but yes Amy was so deserving of a nomination and should’ve flat out won over the actual contenders. Such a brilliant performance that was subtle and emotional/complex. For you bitches who said everyone in there is dry af, and stanning for Denzel, clearly you need mental help.

    Am I the only one who thinks Chastain basically played the same character in Zero Dark Thirty/Most Violent Year/Miss Sloane….

    The same can be said for Amy Adams who is also someone with zero acting range IMO. Same performance, different movie.

    Well that has worked out for Adams 5x and was considered snubbed an additional 2-3x (actual snub where she contended in more than 1 pre-cursor) While it worked for Jessica once and was nowhere close to get another nomination.
