    Of the two actresses in contention, Amy Adams (0-5) and Julianne Moore (0-4), which one would you say is more overdue? Adams because she has the higher record or Moore because she has been around longer and is 0-4?

    Julianne. She’s been working longer, has given better performances and is an iconic actress already. Amy, while very good, still has a little bit more to prove before she can be proclaimed an icon.

    lol Why was there a poll for this? Were there ever any doubt that Julianne is more ‘overdue’ than Amy?

    What a GREAT idea for a thread! But pls do more than just vote. EXPLAIN why you think Amy or Julianne is more overdue. We’d like to quote some of your thoughts in a blog item we’ll do as follow-up …. tx

    I think that Adams is more overdue because she is currently at the top of her career and has reached the point where she absolutely should have an oscar. Moore has been very steady and reliable in her career, but she hasn’t hit the point where she deserves to win a career oscar like Plummer a few years ago.

    For me no one is overdue in the sense that, no matter how distinguished an actor’s career, if there were better performances each time they were nominated then they shouldn’t have won. In the case of Julianne Moore and Amy Adams, however, I feel they’ve deserved to win their categories twice each, at least among the contenders I’ve seen – Moore for Boogie Nights and Far From Heaven, Adams for Junebug and The Master (I’ll pretend Helen Hunt in The Sessions was nominated in the lead category where she belonged). So they’re both equally “overdue” in my mind, but I guess Moore has had the slightly more distinguished career overall, partly because she’s been around for longer, but also because she takes risks in a way I wish Adams would more often, excellent actress though she is.

    Moore has been working longer and she has been passed up on really good projects to be nominated for Oscars like The Kids Are All Right. Adams will get her due she has been only been on the radar for 10 years now will smaller parts before that but Moore has been around since the 90’s. But this will all depend on when the movies come out and we see how good these ladies are

    Ok, part of the problem for both is that they’ve never given a performance that demanded the Academy to vote for them.  The stars just haven’t aligned.  Most of Moore’s nominations have been for really understated work—and we know that usually doesn’t win Oscars.  And Amy Adams for years was typecast as the cute girl with no backbone and is just starting to get over that backbone for many people.  She gets nominated for everything these days because she’s a star.  Looking back, I don’t think there’s ever been a case where I think either should/could have won (no, for the nth time, Adams in Junebug should not have beaten winner Rachel Weisz in Constant Gardener).  For me, it’ll just come down to who gave the best performance this year, whether it’s Moore, Adams, or someone else—no one is owed.

    Both are among my favorite actresses,but Moore,easily.
    For me Amy hasn’t even reached “that” overdue status.She is indeed very good and is really versatile,every good performance she’s given is very different from one another;however,Julianne Moore is in the kind of position that whenever somebody brought up “overdue”,you’d pop out her name right away.

    What EddyQ and KT said.

    Still, what does Julianne have to do? Get really really senior in years and then, direct with the Big Boys??

    Overdue as Lead Actress = Julianne Moore

    Overdue as Supporting Actress = Amy Adams

    I think both are equally overdue for different reasons. Julianne because she has a larger acting resume than Amy. But, with Amy it’s like if she does get nominated for Big Eyes it’ll be her sixth and once you need both hands to count how many nominations you have I think one of them has to include a win.

    You know, of course J.Moore is longer in the business because she’s 14 years older than Amy Adams. Feels like Amy’s indeed going similar ways like Glenn Close, who also had an impressive run in the 80’s with 5 nods that decade. Though it’s not going to take more than 20 years to get Amy a sixth nom and she has a lot of baity projects out the next years.
