    Only Vice and Doubt, so no.

    “The Fighter” as well. Melissa Leo & Christian Bale were THE performances from that film.

    Amy benefited from a weak Supporting Actress year. That’s not to say she was bad. I actually preferred her over Leo. But it’s clear she got in as a coattail nominee.

    Some of the people listed were actually expected to make the cut. That was considered incomprehensible for the performance to not be nominated. An example is Kate Nelligan’s 1991 Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in Barbra Streisand’s The Prince of Tides.

    Lol Amy wasn’t a a coattail for American Hustle, nor for the Fighter. There was a critical passion for both performances (Society runner-up for both). For the Fighter she made the BAFTA line-up while Melissa Leo missed. And she won the Globe for American Hustle. So it’s actually clear that she wasn’t a coattail at all.

    How about Nancy Olson in Sunset Boulevard? I rewatched it the other day and was actually surprised she received a nomination for Best Supporting Actress because she did nothing memorable in the movie at all.

    She wasn’t runner-up at Society for American Hustle. And I’m sorry but she didn’t had that much critical passion for her. She missed on a lot of critics groups. The only critical group that cared enough for her was NYFCC, in which she came 2nd. She was snubbed at SAG and CC. The funny thing is that she won CC for best actress in a comedy and yet she missed the main category. At SAG she won ensemble and yet was also snubbed in the main category. The Cast of American Hustle was basically snubbed everywhere (critics groups, CC and SAG). With the exception of Lawrence, who showed up everywhere. She got lucky because the academy loved the movie. Adams, Bale and Cooper were basically coattail nominations. They got in because of the popularity of the movie and Lawrence within the academy.

    Yeah she was in Frankie and Johnny that year as well and won the BAFTA so I wouldn’t call her a coattail nomination at all!

    Aparicio was coattail but deserved her nod.

    I would say Marina was more of a coattail than Yalitza. She had tons of critical support and was nominated at CC and even received a nod at Gotham awards for Breakthrough performance. Marina’s nomination was basically her only nomination that year, including critic grups.

    It bears mentioning that (unless I’ve missed someone) Marina de Tavira was also only the second performer, male or female, to be Oscar-nominated for a supporting role in a foreign language film; Valentina Cortese was the first in 1974 for Day for Night. (This is discounting foreign-language performances in films predominantly in English, such as Robert De Niro in The Godfather Part II and Benicio del Toro in Traffic.) It’s an illustration of how strong a Best Picture contender Roma was for a foreign language film that anyone was able to “ride its coattails” at all, though I do think Marina was deserving.

    The Amy Adams haters are out in full force, spewing ridiculousness.

    Just because we find her mediocre and undeserving her of her nominations does not mean we hate her.
