Amy Adams better start doing some bicep curls because you think she’ll have her hands full at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. In a recent poll, a whopping 85 percent of our readers say Adams has the best shot at converting her two individual nominations into wins.
Adams has film and TV bids for her supporting turn in “Vice” and her starring role in the HBO limited series “Sharp Objects,” respectively. She’s the early odds-on favorite in both races, so if she goes 2-for-2, she’d be the third person to take home two individual statuettes in one night. The first two were Helen Mirren, who won for “The Queen” (2006) and the miniseries “Elizabeth I,” and Idris Elba, who prevailed for “Beasts of No Nation” (2015) and “Luther.”
Adams, who has an ensemble award for “American Hustle” (2013), is up against the two other double individual nominees in the film supporting actress race, Emily Blunt (“A Quiet Place”) and Emma Stone (“The Favourite”), so no more than one person could win both. Eight percent of our readers think Blunt could win both her categories, while the remaining 7 percent are backing Stone to do so.
Stone is in third place in supporting actress, behind also her co-star Rachel Weisz, and Blunt is in fourth, followed by Margot Robbie (“Mary Queen of Scots”). The last time Adams, Blunt and Stone faced off at the SAG Awards, Stone won for “La La Land” (2016) over Adams (“Arrival”), Blunt (“The Girl on the Train”), Natalie Portman (“Jackie”) and Meryl Streep (“Florence Foster Jenkins”).
Stone and Adams will also vie for limited series/TV movie actress honors, the former with her Netflix limited series “Maniac.” But she’s in fifth place there, trailing Patricia Arquette (“Escape at Dannemora”), Patricia Clarkson (“Sharp Objects”) and Penelope Cruz (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”).
Blunt, meanwhile, is in fourth place in her other category, film actress, for “Mary Poppins Returns,” following Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”), Glenn Close (“The Wife”) and Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”). Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) is in fifth.
