    While it is always nice to be nominated it would have tied her for the dubious distinction of most nominations without a win.

    I wonder what her feelings are today.

    Well a 6th nomination at her age would have kept her within the same pace of Meryl’s nominations…

    but Meryl had won twice by then.

    She’s ecstatic! Actors love it when they miss out on nominations they had every reason to expect.

    Eh, I honestly don’t think the win matters that much; to be singled out with just 4 other performances is an achievement enough.  Even if Portman wins a second Oscar, Adams’s 5 nominations is more impressive to me (and 6 would be even better…).

    She’s upset obviously. Nominated everywhere, your film was obviously loved and yet you are the star and don’t get the nomination. She’ll get over it though. And so will her fans.

    She didn’t fucking do anything worthy of a nomination.

    But you know what, I’m open to being convinced. So please, tell me what Amy did that made you think Oscar? Because to me, the movie was dry and the performances weren’t any better.

    Oh I’m sure she is happy. Ecstatic even. I mean wouldn’t you be if you missed on out an Oscar nomination? Esp when your movie got nominated for nearly every other category that it was in the running for. I’m sure she is behind happy about it.

    Hardware matters more than nominations. Unless Portman upsets at SAG she’s not winning for Jackie. Adams’ 5 nominations are made up of 4 supporting nods. Her Oscar record isn’t impressive when she’s only been competitive to win twice in supporting actress.

    Really? I’d much prefer two wins from three nominations over five or six nominations without a win (with four of them being in the supporting category).

    This is like asking would you rather your team lose in the conference championship or the super bowl. Of course you’d rather make the super bowl lol just to get there is an accomplishment.

    I think Oscar nominations are often symbolic of an actor’s contribution to film, but the wins don’t really mean much on their own.  You can take half of the acting winners and their body of work doesn’t hold a candle to the many actors who are periodically nominated.  I don’t think Portman turning in a great performance every 6 years is comparable to Adams’s (or Chastain’s or Williams’s) steady and consistently good work.  Likewise, it seems like people have way more respect for Jake Gyllenhall, Joaquin Phoenix, and Michael Shannon than they do Redmayne, Dujardin, or Leto; in the end people remember the performances, not the trophy.
