Amy Adams Fan - online since 2008 - is your online guide to the talented and beautiful actress know for movies such as Enchanted, The Fighter, Junebug, and most recently American Hustle. Here you can find information about the five-time Oscar-nominee and all of her films, an extensive photo gallery housing over 80,000 pictures, a streaming video archive and much, much more.
Amy Adams, a three-time best supporting actress Oscar nominee who is now in serious contention for her fourth nom in the category for Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master or Walter Salles’s On the Road or Clint Eastwood’s Trouble with the Curve, will receive the Hollywood Supporting Actress Award, LA Times said.
The Hollywood Film Awards, which are associated with the Hollywood Film Festival and determined by HFF founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu and his advisory team, recognize individuals for both career achievement and work released within the calendar year.
Previous recipients of the Hollywood Supporting Actress Award include Alison Lohman (2003), Susan Sarandon (2005), Sandra Bullock (2006), Jennifer Connelly (2007), Marisa Tomei (2008), Julianne Moore (2009), Helena Bonham Carter (2010), and Carey Mulligan (2011).
NEW YORK — At times, Amy Adams feels as if she’s two very distinct people.
There’s the foxy Oscar nominee who shimmies down red carpets in stunning Giambattista Valli and Lanvin gowns. And then there’s the mom of Aviana, 2, who arrives for an interview in jeans and Converse sneakers, her auburn hair pulled back in a messy knot.
“I love that balance,” Adams says. “I had a talk-show blitz yesterday. I had three hours down, so I raced home, changed out of my nice clothes and we walked to Central Park and did the merry-go-round because I promised her we’d do it before we went back. And she remembers. And then we walked back.”
Adams, 38, took a year off to have her baby. Now she’s back, in three decidedly dissimilar films. In Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, she’s the scarily pitiless wife of a captivating, blustering quack-religious leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman). In Trouble with the Curve, she’s Clint Eastwood’s estranged daughter. In December’s On the Road, she’s Viggo Mortensen’s kooky, unstable common-law poet wife, playing a character based on Joan Vollmer. And next summer, she enters the superhero canon in Man of Steel as Lois Lane opposite Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent.
Trouble With The Curve’s old-fashioned qualities and romanticism veer into hokiness, but , but the film gets a major charge from Amy Adams, who plays Gus’ daughter Mickey. In a spirited, nuanced performance, Adams subtly undermines the film’s tacit approval of its protagonist’s ways. A dedicated lawyer on track for partnership at her Atlanta firm, Mickey’s learned to hide in her work and to keep people at an emotional distance from her dad, who shipped her away to live with family when she was six and her mother passed away.
Adams doesn’t play Mickey as brittle or snippy, which has become lazy actor shorthand for the workaholic females in movies. She’s guarded but warm, and keeps reaching out to her father via calls and dinners, despite his apparent indifference and unintentionally harsh words. We know that Gus loves his daughter, he just has trouble expressing it. When Mickey isn’t around, he has no trouble praising her in the presence of others. But over the course of the film, Mickey’s refusal to give up on her relationship with her father, despite being repeatedly rebuffed by him, starts looking more like strength than her remaining parent’s growling dedication to doing things the right way.
The same qualities show up in Mickey’s tentative romance with new scout Johnny (Justin Timberlake, always welcome), a former pitcher scouted by Gus years ago who blew out his arm and now aims for an announcer job. He charms his way past her defenses, and she in turn acknowledges her tendency to keep people at a distance. Mickey demonstrates that being able to bend, to acknowledge your faults and work on them requires more courage than always standing your ground. Adams quietly steals the movie out from under her co-star, and she does it while steering clear of the stereotypical ruts that could have mired her performance in mediocrity. Adams and her unexpected approach to her scenes with Eastwood bring Trouble With The Curve to life and give it more animation than its formula would suggest.
When a film has already hit theaters, much less been on screens for a full two weeks, it’s usually out of the internet’s mind, but when it comes to Paul Thomas Anderson, nothing is usual. The Master took an abnormal path in its marketing, releasing little trailers up to release and for anyone that has seen the film (if you haven’t, you must have a vital excuse), knows most of the footage wasn’t even in the film.
Now, as a thank you, the filmmakers have released one final teaser that runs a lengthy four-and-half-minutes and includes a batch of unseen footage, including portions of completely new scenes and others that are from the film, but extended. (The Filmstage)
You could say Amy Adams is a Jill of all acting trades.
She earned her first Oscar nomination playing a talkative pregnant young adult in Junebug. Her second nod arrived with her portrayal of a sweet nun in Doubt and she picked up her third for her performance as a brawling bartender in The Fighter.
Next year, we can see Adams reinventing Lois Lane in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel, set for theatres in June 2013.
For more immediate examples of her range, check out The Master and Trouble With the Curve, both opening Sept. 21.
In The Master, she defines the manipulative wife of a 1950s cult leader (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman). Trouble With the Curve features her take on a modern woman coping with her laconic dad (played by Clint Eastwood).
Even Adams conceded that the roles are strikingly different.
