    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.

    I agree with your reasoning as to why she was snubbed for Arrival. People assumed she was a shoo-in so they voted for somebody else.

    now she considered in the same vein as Jessica Lange, Glenn Close & Natalie Portman.

    Really Jan?

    She will never be in the same vein as :

    Jessica Lange, only with Frances and AHS… she proved herself to be a great actress.

    Glenn Close, do I need to justify myself ?!

    Natalie Portman, possibly but I see Natalie being a better actress only by a centimeter. I don’t know if she reached her whole potential yet with Black Swan, but she definitely a bit better than Adams.

    are you serious about Jessica Lange? she was Great actress outside of Frances and AHS. She is one of the best ever, Jan.

    In terms with of where their careers where at that point in, that’s where the comparisons come in. Both Lange & Close because they got 5+ Oscar nominations within 9-12 years. Adams got 5 nominations in 8 years since her first and her 6th 13 years since her first.

    Portman comparisons come with both her and Adams are arguably the two most famous actors of their generation that have consistent critically and commercial successes.

    you guys think the Academy will slow down with her or they will keep nominating her, if they like the movie and performance?

    I actually thought her role in Vice was as baity as it could get so I think she might struggle to get nominated for a couple of years…

    As for Lange, I thought her filmography was widely regarded as lacklustre.

    The longest she’s ever had to wait between nominations is 5 years. And The Woman in the Window is coming out this year.

    Funny that the only nominated performance for which the nomination was actually deserved (and, considering her fellow nominees that year, the win, as well) is the one least-spoken about. Adams in The Master is peak Adams; she has not really delivered anything else close. Perhaps she is one of those actors who needs a good director.

    Amy is a legend. Got sold on her work the moment she did Enchanted.

    And let’s not forget some career-peak work with “Sharp Objects” that’s woefully been under-rewarded. Well, there’s still hope for the Emmys. Criminally snubbed for “Arrival,” and I would have nodded Adams for “Enchanted” as well. “Vice” notwithstanding, yes, what a career Damy’s had for where she started and when she started in comparison to the level of output that she’s producing now. The Oscar will happen when it happens.

    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.

    Amy Adams is one of only ten actors/actresses to earn six Oscar nominations before turning 45. The other nine are Cate Blanchett, Richard Burton, Bette Davis, Jane Fonda, Greer Garson, Deborah Kerr, Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep, and Kate Winslet.

    Also, only five actors/actresses have managed to earn their sixth Oscar nomination younger than Adams did. Greer Garson earned her sixth at 41, Deborah Kerr at 39, Meryl Streep at 36, and both Bette Davis and Kate Winslet at 33.

Greer Garson earned her sixth at 41, Deborah Kerr at 39, Meryl Streep at 36, and both Bette Davis and Kate Winslet at 33.

    Furthermore, Adams earned her first six nominations in a 14-year period. This makes her one of only eleven actors/actresses to earn their first six nominations in less than 15 years. The other ten are Bette Davis (8 years), Judi Dench (10 years), Jane Fonda (13 years), Greer Garson (7 years), Deborah Kerr (12 years), Jessica Lange (13 years), Jack Nicholson (13 years), Thelma Ritter (13 years), Meryl Streep (8 years), and Kate Winslet (14 years).

    It’s so weird because I always think she has more nominations as lead… but she only has 1 out of 6.

    Same as Renée Zellweger, I know she won for a supporting role but I always think she has a BA Oscar…

    It’ll be cooler if Adams wins for a leading role.

    I think if marion cotillard was in drama, Amy adams would have won the musical or comedy golden globe for enchanted.
