E! reported yesterday that Amy and Darren has tied the knot, in a small intimate ceremony over the weekend in California. They’re together for 14 years, and got engaged in 2008. People reported that Amy wore Marchesa.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
Amy Adams won Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy at the 2015 Golden Globes for “Big Eyes” in Beverly Hills on Sunday. This is her second win and sixth Golden Globes nomination. On her acceptance speech, she thanked the inspiring women in the room.
It’s just so wonderful that women today have such a strong voice. And I have a four and a half year old and I’m so grateful to have all the woman in this room, you speak to her so loudly. She watches everything and she sees every thing. And I’m just so so grateful for all of you women in this room who have such a lovely, beautiful voice. Thank you so much!
You can find now the first batch of pictures added in our gallery, and you can see Amy was looking pure glamour in a draped Versace lilac gown which color suits her so well. Check back later for more (and also for videos).

The Telegraph published yesterday an amazing interview with Amy Adams, in which they talked about pretty much everything. Her life before being famous, her earlier career, working with DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, about Aviana and being a working mom, about having post-natal depression (which came out as a huge surprise to me), about the pressure and the feelings on her wining an Oscar and, of course, about Big Eyes.
Playing Keane – whose husband, Walter, for a decade passed off her Big Eye paintings as his own – has heightened Adams’s interest in art. ‘Now Darren will take me to these underground art shows and exhibitions, and you can see how her influence lives on.’ She hasn’t yet heard Keane’s reaction to the film, and when I read to her what the 87-year-old painter told a newspaper in October – ‘It was really traumatic. Christoph Waltz looks like Walter, sounds like him, acts like him. And to see Amy going through what I went through… It’s very accurate’ – Adams looks relieved. ‘That’s really what you want when you’re playing someone. Not to traumatise them,’ she adds with a prettily lopsided smile, ‘but to be accurate.’
One of my favourite parts of the article is this one:
One of seven children, Adams was raised a Mormon until the age of 12, when her parents divorced and left the Church. ‘It instilled a certain work ethic in me,’ she says. ‘Everybody was always expected to pitch in and help around the house.’ There’s a glass-half-full legacy too. ‘My aunt always used to say, “A happy day keeps the blues away,” and I loved her for that. I read something recently about how the way we greet our children in the morning dictates so much of their self-worth during the day, and of course it can be hard if you’re up early and tired, but I try to put a smile on and be cheery with my daughter [four-year-old Aviana]. Non-morning people would probably find that really annoying,’ she laughs.

The nominees for the 72nd annual Golden Globe awards were announced on Thursday morning, and once again Amy Adams received a nomination for Best Actress in a motion picture, musical or comedy for her work on Big Eyes! She share the category with fellow nominees Emily Blunt, Quvenzhané Wallis, Helen Mirren, and Julianne Moore.
She released a short statement after hearing about her nomination:
Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this honor. It’s so exciting to be nominated for a film I really enjoyed making and I’m so proud to have been a part of Tim Burton’s vision in sharing Margaret Keane’s story alongside Christoph.
The 72nd Golden Globe Awards will be held in Beverly Hills on January 11, 2015
