    Both girls were relatively unknown prior to their first Oscar nominations (Michelle had Dawson’s creek and Amy Adams had Catch Me If You Can/guest tv works) and got their first Oscar nominations in 2005 and since then have been fairly consistent in getting nominated once they hit the precursors.

    Not counting participation awards (SAG ensemble), both only precursor wins are a CC win (which they tied with each other in 2005) and a Golden Globe Comedy actress.

    Both of their most favorited nominated performance (least according to the internet or nobody really slams that performance/nomination) are the ones where they did the worst on the precursors relative with their other nominated performances. with only 2 precursor noms

    Amy Adams – Junebug (CC, SAG)
    Michelle Williams – Blue Valentine (CC, GG)

    Both got their first Emmy nominations this year.

    At the Oscars, Michelle Williams is the most nominated actor for acting that’s born in the 1980s. Amy Adams is second in most nominated best supporting actress of all time with 5 nominations

    Who’s the superior actress? Who has the better filmography? Will they both be Oscar winners? Will they be done in terms of winning another Oscar if they win their first Oscar?

    I’m not going to compare these two ladies because they’re both two of my favorite actresses working today. But yeah, I predict both win Oscars one day. And come September, Williams should have an Emmy to her name.

    Williams is the stronger of the two talent wise. But Adams has The Master in her filmography Williams needs some centerpiece titles. I think both will win Oscars and I could see Michelle being the multi-winner of the two.

    I stan them both, and overall I probably like Adams a little more, I think I’d choose Williams as the better actress, but obviously it’s extremely close. Michelle’s best (Blue Valentine, Fosse/Verdon) performances are just a little better than Amy’s best (The Master, Sharp Objects).

    Adams has a slightly better filmography. The Master, Arrival, Enchanted, American Hustle, Junebug, Her, Vice, and Doubt are all favorites of mine. Blue Valentine and Manchester by the Sea are the only Williams movies I really love.

    I do think they’ll both win Oscars. Adams probably before Williams purely based on 6 vs 4 noms respectively, but it really just depends on what roles comes when. Weren’t both of them supposed to play Janis Joplin at some point?

    It’s hard for anyone to win a 2nd Oscar, so I doubt either will but it’s very possible for either of them to win 2. I just hope if either of them only win 1 that’s it’s for lead.

    I don’t like the idea of picking between these two because they’ve both done such great work. Both gave tremendous supporting performances in fantastic movies this decade. Amy Adams was this constant, silent presence in The Master, but every so often Peggy would come to focus and I’d just revel in the captivating enigma Adams had created. And Michelle Williams in Manchester By The Sea? She wasn’t a huge part of the film either, but that scene with Casey Affleck when she has her breakdown was astonishing in its effectiveness, it truly crushed me.

    Not to mention their accomplishments this year with Fosse/Verdon and Sharp Objects, two great roles where they each really did bring their A game. I’d prefer Adams to win because she’s lost over and over, but honestly a win from either would be amazing.

    Adams seems like a done deal once she wins. That’s why I have Williams winning twice. If one of them were to win twice.

    I don’t think I’ve seen enough projects with Williams to give a justified opinion on her, but I turned into a Damy stan after Sharp Objects. She should be sweeping for it but we are where we are because of the Globes. Adams’ overall nom count and filmography convince me that she’ll win an Oscar before Williams, but I don’t know if either can win two unless they both go Supporting the first win and then Lead. But, like Pulp said, they definitely deserve a lead if they only get one Oscar.

    I’m huge fans of both, and am very anxious for one them to finally win an industry award. I think both of them are giving career best work in Sharp Objects and Fosse Verdon. In some ways it’s hard to compare them though. I always thought it was pretty impressive Williams was nominated for Brokeback Mountain and Manchester By the Sea for such little screentime, in addition to getting nominated for Blue Valentine and My Week with Marilyn when these films only got 1 nomination and 2 nominations respectively. Adams filmography is definitely more interesting in terms of box office numbers and best picture contenders, but Williams is such an indie darling who seems consistently loved by critics. I think Adams will continue racking up the nominations but I could see Williams winning more than once out of the two of them.

    Adams would get my vote of the two. I see both winning at some point, but one might have to wait much longer than the other one.

    Coattail. I think it’s even more impressive when a actor is the sole nominee from his/her picture. This means the person really gives a strong performance compared to some who benefit from their movies and easily get name-checked. Williams is the most interesting actress of the two, but Adams is likely winning an Oscar in first.

    I would agree with that. It’s “easier” to get a nomination if your movie is a BP nominee/frontrunner, so for someone to be the sole nominee of a film is pretty impressive. Adams did do this for Junebug, but this was also her first nomination.

    I feel like Adams is more of a “movie star” than Williams so I think she’d be a bit more likely to win a 2nd oscar.

    I feel like Amy and Michelle should’ve had their nomination count switched with Michelle getting Best actress nominations for Wendy and Lucy + Take this Waltz while Amy loses her Vice and Doubt nominations.

    Michelle Williams all the way. She earned all her nominations while Adams earned only two of hers (Junebug and the master). Like someone said, Adams is likely to be the first to win since she’s hugely considered to be overdue because of her cottail nominations (a total waste of overdue status). Williams has to work more than twice as Adams to even get nominated

    Taron Egerton (Rocketman) for best actor. Charlize Theron looks great in Bombshell teaser

    even the one for American Hustle. She was even more believable in Doubt than American Hustle

    She served MVP/looks/sex in American hustle and her nomination was worthy in the latter. I cant say the same for Doubt.
