W Magazine unveiled today its new Movie Issue, and Amy is among their 2017 Best Performances.
She’s featured in one of the four covers, alongside actor Matthew McConaughey. Some other featured stars are Nicole Kidman, Natalie Portman, Michelle Williams, Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield, and Chris Pine.
Amy Adams: Arrival and Nocturnal Animals
“Tom Ford became my muse on Nocturnal Animals. My character, Susan, was very personal to Tom, and so I based my interpretation on him. Tom would ask on set, ‘Why is Amy using her hands like that?’ And I said, ‘I’m copying you, Tom!’ I used him. I used him up.”
They also talk about 2016 being the Year of Female Empowerment on Screen.
In a year when a woman was denied the presidency, female characters prevailed on the big screen: Amy Adams was a linguist who brokered world peace in Arrival and a regretful art dealer in Nocturnal Animals. Natalie Portman brought nuance and steel to her portrayal of an icon, Jackie Kennedy; Annette Bening was at once enigmatic and commanding as an unorthodox 1970s matriarch in 20th Century Women. And Taraji P. Henson was fierce as a little-known heroine, NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, in Hidden Figures. Unlike much of the country, Hollywood exalted in female empowerment, and audiences rejoiced.
