    When you think about it what she achieved in her career is amazing. She started doing really crappy movies like psycho beach party,fail tv shows like cruel intentions 2, and maybe a couple of guest acting roles in tv. Catch me if you can was supposed to be her big break but she was out of work for a year in her 30s. Then Adams did junebug which when she was about to quit acting. A small indie film which nobody really saw but her performance was so critically acclaimed she landed her first oscar nomination.After that people thought she was a “one hit wonder” until she proved everybody wrong with enchanted. Enchanted proved she could be a leading lady finally having Adams break in as a successful Hollywood actress. This lead to Adams having a career as a lead actress in rom coms while still maintaining her acclaim with oscar nominations thought her career, leading her to have a reputation of a versatile actress. This year Adams achieved her sixth oscar nomination at the age of 44.Compare to Glenn getting her 6th oscar nomination at the age of 64 for Albert Nobbs in 2012, what Adams have is an achievement. She is the second LIVING actress with the most nominations and no wins( Deborah Kerr and Thelma Ritter are dead) after Glenn close with her 7 nominations. Hope Adams  finally win for Women in the Window next year

    Perennial nominee status with no wins is garbage.

    She has 6 nominations.

    She deserved only one nomination of these six. (The Fighter)

    Although she should have been nominated for Enchanted and Arrival.

    I know about something called subjectivity and all that crap but this is…incorrect.

    I forgot that she was in Cruel Intentions 2, that film’s poster always made me think it was Nicole Kidman, dead lol. But in regards to her success and nominations, it’s because she’s an underrated…

    It’s crazy to think how at the start of her career she was thought in the same vein of Jennifer Taylor, Katy Mixon & April Bowlby and now she considered in the same vein as Jessica Lange, Glenn Close & Natalie Portman.

    She should have 4 nominations imo (Junebug, Enchanted, Doubt & Arrival)

    I agree that Amy Adams should have been nominated for Arrival. Most people said that she lost out to Ruth Negga (Loving), but I think this was another example of Meryl Streep getting another nomination because she is Meryl Streep, for Florence Foster Jenkins (see also August: Osage County, Into the Woods, The Iron Lady) Meryl would probably get nominated for reading the phone book. Enchanted might be a bit harder sell because it is a fantasy musical, and unless its Mary Poppins, it might be a bit hard to get a nomination.

    Also, all her nominations were deserved. There is no doubt about that (no pun intended)

    I have an inkling that her roles in Enchanted (being too adorable) and her DCU appearances (slightly miscast) work against Amy, that the Academy do not take her seriously enough.

    Amy still has a long time to go in her career, so here is hoping that she wins sooner rather than later.

    I think theyll only nominate her again with her winning role, so I can see them snubbing her next year unless she wins all the precursors

    I think people unfairly scrutinize her due to her quick accumulation of so many nominations, but I do feel that each of them have been well-deserved. She does benefit from being cast in a lot of BP contenders with stellar casts so sure you can call some of them coattail nominations, but this happens all the time with the Oscars and doesn’t necessarily mean she doesn’t deserve them. I still think she was snubbed for Arrival because people assumed she was a shoo-in, because her performance was acclaimed and Arrival got 8 nominations including Picture, Director, Editing, etc. I think for her to win it will have to be an undeniable performance that sweeps all of the awards.
