    Amy Adams has been nominated 3 time (Junebug,Doubt, and The Fighter. But why wasn’t she nominated for any leading roles ( Enchanted and Julie and Julia )

    This might seem like a weird thread but i just wanted to get some of your thoughts.

    She was much better in Enchanted than J&J, but a comedy/kid’s movie is a tough sell for Oscar unless you are Julie Andrews and you were passed over for the role of Eliza Doolittle. The only real vulnerable nominee that year would have been Laura Linney just because her movie wasn’t as widely seen or hyped. But you would have also had Angelina Jolie and maybe Kiera Knightley in the running as well.

    As for J&J, most reviews I read stated the Julie part much less interesting than Julia. Take away the Julia section and it was standard RomCom type stuff. Nothing award worthy or even nomination worthy.

    4. The 3 she got + Enchanted. She’s really good in that film. Even Cate Blanchett herself was ashamed for her nomination for The Golden Age. Amy should have gotten that spot.

    I believe that she should have 4 nominations so far ( Junebug, Enchanted, Doubt, and The Fighter ) and she should have 2 wins by now ( Junebug and Doubt )

    I’m surprised she hasn’t won a single Golden Globe yet….

    I’ll give her “Junebug” (even though I haven’t seen it) and “Doubt” but I thought she wasn’t good in “The Fighter”. She just wasn’t convincing as this stand-by-her-man/ tough girl she was supposed to portray. I kept picturing Marisa Tomei and the things she could have done with the character. As for “Enchanted”, she was cute but there was nothing award worthy about her work.

    So I say she should have two Oscar nominations. She could have even won for “Doubt” but Penelope Cruz gave an amazingly strong performance.

    Also, if she gets nominated for “The Master”, it will be her fourth nomination in the supporting actress category. She will be in the company of Maggie Smith, Geraldine Page, Maureen Stapleton, Agnes Moorehead, Ethel Barrymore and Lee Grant. That would be truly astonishing.

    I think the three she has are justified.

    Well she seems to be one of the frontrunners for supporting actress this year.

    I think the three nominations she got were all very well deserved, and she should have won for “Junebug”. I also enjoyed her more in “Doubt” than most people and she was definitely better than co-star/eventual winner Melissa Leo for The Fighter.

    I also think that she should have definitely been nominated for “Enchanted”, and I would go as far to say I would have nominated her for her brief but sweet performance as Brenda Strong, the young nurse that Leonardo DiCaprio starts to fall for while he is on the run in “Catch Me If You Can”.
