28th SBIFF Cinema Vanguard Award – Videos Update

I have added to our video archive some videos of Amy on Santa Barbara International Film Festival, while accepting the Cinema Vanguard Award.

Amy answered questions about her life and career during a 90-minute interview with moderator Pete Hammond before she was presented with her award. She later acknowledged, though, that she has “horrible stage-fright,” which cannot have been helped by the fact that the audience consisted not only of roughly 2,000 festivalgoers, but also her Master writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson and co-star/fellow Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix.

Eventually, Anderson, who doesn’t attend many awards ceremonies, came out to share a few words about Adams and then present her with her award. He noted that she is a timeless sort of actress who would have fit in perfectly in a classic film from, say, 1947 — something she had disputed earlier in the evening, joking, “My mouth is crooked and they would never have accepted me in that era” — and he provoked laughter from her and everyone else by insinuating that she is a drug addict and adding, in a reference to a scene in The Master that was lost on some audience members, that she is the person to go to “if you ever want a handjob delivered with maximum efficiency.”

In accepting her award Adams said, “I didn’t expect tonight to be what it was. [source]
