    Couldn’t disagree more about Amy Adams. I thought the film brilliantly showcased how evil men like Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character do what they do because their wives often enable them or support them in what they do. Her character wasn’t some naive housewife who was clueless about her husband’s true nature. She knew exactly the kind of man her husband was, and in many ways, while her husband was the public face of The Cause, she was often its behind-the-scenes brains. She was the one who often had to persuade her husband to persuade Joaquin Phoenix’s character to either devote himself to The Cause, or leave and never return.

    Again, not that Amy Adams wasn’t any good in The Master. It’s just that of all the Best Supporting Actress nominees that year, her performance was the one that I was least enthusiastic about.

    Loathe. Her performance wasn’t memorable enough for a nomination. It’s the perfect example of when an actor gets in based on a film’s overall love.

    I didn’t mind the nomination, but she honestly did not do anything memorable in the movie. This nomination, alongside with Rachel McAdams in Spotlight.

    I like her performance (it’s better than JLaw and DeNiro in the same movie, or at least more consistent than JLaw’s), and it’s nice that such a great character actress is a multi-Oscar nominee, but the performance isn’t really award-level, although I actually think she’s the best of those nominees. That whole supporting actress lineup was underwhelming (Anne Hathaway is whatever in Les Miserables and I loathe the movie), 2012 in general wasn’t the strongest for the category, but here’s my lineup:

    1. Cecile De France – The Kid With A Bike
    2. Besedka Johnson – Starlet
    3. Elena Lyadova – Elena
    4. Lea Seydoux – Sister
    5. Emily Blunt – Looper
