We’ve gotten a better sense of the Oscar race since learning that Amy Adams will be campaigned as a supporting actress for “Vice” and that Emma Stone is also going supporting for “The Favourite.” That means they may square off multiple times during the awards season. But at both the Golden Globes and SAG Awards they could battle twice in one night because both women are also contenders for TV. Adams starred this past summer in HBO’s limited series “Sharp Objects,” and Stone came to Netflix for the mind-bending “Maniac.”
As of this writing Adams has the advantage for Best TV Movie/Limited Actress at the Golden Globes with leading odds of 4/1 based on the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users. In “Sharp Objects,” based on the novel by Gillian Flynn (“Gone Girl”), she played Camille Preaker, an alcoholic journalist who travels back to her hometown to solve a double murder. Stone is close behind with odds of 5/1 for her role in “Maniac” as a woman coping with her personal demons using a futuristic drug.
Adams and Stone are both past Globe winners, and in the same category no less. Adams won Best Film Comedy/Musical Actress twice in a row for “American Hustle” (2013) and “Big Eyes” (2014). Stone won that prize a couple of years later for “La La Land” (2016). Thus far neither of them has been nominated for TV.
Our users also think Adams is out front at the SAG Awards, where she leads with odds of 15/2 for “Sharp Objects,” while Stone ranks second with odds of 19/2 for “Maniac.” Like at the Golden Globes, both women are past winners at these kudos. Stone has three SAG wins: for her leading role in “La La Land” and for ensemble acting in “The Help” (2011) and “Birdman” (2014). Adams won as a member of the “American Hustle” ensemble, but she has yet to win individually.
As of this writing neither Adams nor Stone is tipped to win Best Supporting Actress for their film roles. Regina King is currently the odds-on favorite at the Golden Globes, SAG Awards and Oscars for “If Beale Street Could Talk,” but now that we have more clarity on categories we could see Adams and Stone rise in those races too. Could either of them make multiple trips to the podium on Globes and SAG night?
