The LA Times has an interesting article about the Oscars. Predicting Amy Adams could go as far as pull off an ‘upset’ and win over the highly favored Penélope Cruz right now (coming off the Bafta win, no Winslet in supporting category, etc). I found it interesting and being huge fans of both Amy Adams and Penélope Cruz and found both performers in that category at their very best and I go back and fourth as to who I want to win. Either way, I’m sure I’ll be happy with the results but we shall see come Oscar night, February 22!
February 8th was the 2009 BAFTA Awards in London, I was offline most of this weekend and unable to bring you an update but now here we go!
Miss Adams was nominated for supporting actress in Doubt, but lost out to Penélope Cruz. She presented best adapted screenplay to Slumdog Millionaire a little later on that evening. While at the award show, Amy was a vision despite being drenched by the cold rainy weather and the red carpet that wasn’t tented. In an interview (which can be streamed here) Amy said her favorite films of last year was Slumdog, The Wrestler and Wendy and Lucy.
At the ceremony, which also marked Amy’s first time at the BAFTA’s, she wore an electric blue mermaid gown by Roland Mouret. In the gallery you can view pictures and screencaps of Amy from the show (clip to follow shortly.)
The night before Amy also attended the nominees party. There she dawned a silver dress with an an asymmetrical hem, and an overshot shoulder, which she opted to fold down, again by Roland Mouret. Her look was completed by black peep-toes, and a satin clutch. Pictures from that event and candids from afterward are uploaded too. Enjoy!

Miss Adams is currently featured in the March issue of Total Film, it’s a joint article with Isla Fisher. It’s not really anything new but the article itself is, but it’s pretty much things we’ve already learned before. But nonetheless a lovely read! Thanks to lovely Ally for donating the scans.
Amy also is inside Los Angeles Confidential for January/February 2009 (Mickey Rourke on it’s cover). This magazine is rare and not available in my area so if someone could donate scans it would be appreciated immensely! For now view LQ versions of the gorgeous new shoot!
Lastly, some misc images not to be missed; Clipping from 2009 and Doubt For Your Consideration ads.
Amy is currently at the 2009 SAG Awards and on the forum are the first pictures of her on the red carpet. She looks gorgeous in a purple colored gown!
Best Supporting Actress was just announced and again Kate Winslet was awarded the honor over Amy’s Doubt performance. Meryl Streep won Best Actress and thanked Amy, “The glorious Amy Adams, so funny, so real.” Lastly, Anthony Hopkins presented Best Ensemble to Slumdog Millionaire‘s cast, Doubt unfortunately lost.
Check back for all the goodies tomorrow!
Amy has been nominated for an Academy Award for her work in Doubt. This marks her second nomination; she was nominated for supporting back in in 2006 for Junebug as well. Huge congratulations Amy Adams! We’re all rooting for you!

Yesterday, Amy Adams and Meryl Streep attended a Paris photocall for Doubt, a part of there European press tour.
Amy looked beautiful in a black dress, she choose a slightly different look. She looks a little more gothic romance in my opinion. With her hair pulled losely up, she accessorized with a diamond drop necklace and a clutch.
• Public Events: Doubt Paris Photocall
There were two big events today for Amy; the London photocall and VIP screening of Doubt.
Let me start by saying, seriously has Amy not been totally top-notch with her fashion choices as of late? She truly just looks so red carpet savy at every single event. And the London press circuit doesn’t disappoint.
At the photocall, Amy opted for a classic black mid-sleeve dress and closed toe heels. She wore her hair down and choose gold earrings and a bracelet to accessorize. Whilst at the screening, Amy wore a Giambattista Valli Spring 2009 ivory strapless printed dress with a bow detail, which is an amalgamation of two dresses that were presented on the runway earlier this year. Amy looked gorgeous at both, but the screening is my personal favorite of the two.
A slew of new images from the 2008 National Board Of Review Awards Gala have been added. Bringing the photo count to just above 50.
We have now learned Amy is wearing a one-shouldered Giambattista Valli dress with sheer overlay and black waistband. She also wore black peep-toes with it.
Doubt won Best Acting by an Ensemble, It’s just nice to be recognized for their work, the actors said. Amy Adams, by now considered a pro on the awards circuit, admitted that for her it’s all about “the ritual burrito at the end of the night.” :wink:
