Amy Adams Honored at American Cinematheque Awards

Amy Adams Honored at American Cinematheque Awards

Amy Adams was honoured last night at the American Cinematheque Awards in Los Angeles. Accompanied by husband Darren LeGallo and her family, she was looking stunning in a Andrew Gn Spring 2018 gown.

Sometimes, I question being an actress,” she said as she picked up the 31st American Cinematheque Award at the Beverly Hilton tonight, “Am I doing enough?

“What do you get out of movies?

This time, I asked my seven-year old daughter, ‘What do movies mean to you?’ She told me, ‘I like movies because they allow my imagination to grow and make me feel like I’m dreaming even though I’m awake.

So I want to thank all off you for allowing me to live my dream even though I’m awake.

Watch her speech below:

On tap to laud Adams were Tom Hanks, Kristen Stewart, Justin Timberlake, Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Messina, Michael Shannon, Denis Villeneuve and Natalie Portman.

Villeneuve said during his speech about the actress, “You’re suppose to roast at these events. I don’t know how to do that, but you don’t roast angels.

Julie and Julia and HBO’s Sharp Objects co-star Chris Messina called Adams a “Babe Ruth” of actors “able to see something that no one else could see” just like the ballplayer when he stepped up to the plate.” He regaled the crowd with an experience over the summer when they were shooting a scene for Sharp Objects in a 100-degree diner in the valley. The steamy atmosphere was ideal for the fight scene they had to perform. However, after a few takes, Adams went to the monitor, studied her performance, and “pointed at the monitor. She wanted to do another take. It reminded me of when Babe Ruth would point to the bleachers,” said Messina. Adams called “Messy” Messina “Family. Working with you brought out the most genuine part of my spirit.”

Her Nocturnal Animals co-star Jake Gyllenhaal also delivered heartfelt praises earlier in the night, that her canon “is a mind-bending study in versatility” with roles such as a “bio-hazard single mother, a bad ass bar maid, a neurotic blogger, a starlet and a nun.”

“People sometimes presume that when someone is at the top of their game, that they’re a total nightmare. Amy is the opposite, instead she’s a wonderful person,” said Gyllenhaal, “In short, we’re honoring a unicorn, a virtuoso talent with serious chops.”

For Justin Timberlake who worked with Adams in Clint Eastwood’s Trouble With the Curve, she is a “karaoke monster” who “bullied me into singing ‘A Whole New World’ from Aladdin” while hey were shooting the film in Atlanta, GA. “Quite frankly, I will sing with you anytime. But next time, I’m choosing the god damn song. I have a history with Disney, there’s a whole PTSD,” joked Timberlake. Adams said that Timberlake equally is also a karaoke beast. Recalling their experience, Adams said “There may have been a dance. The tequila part (of the story) was true.” She extolled Timberlake for his excellent work ethic.

Portman never worked with Adams, but is still waiting for “the perfect buddy comedy” to come along for them. Portman said that she “traveled with Amy on the campaign trail” meaning the awards season track. “During these interviews that get repetitive, Amy said something that it was difficult to be an actress because you have to have a thick skin because of all things people say about you, but you have to have a thin skin and be vulnerable when you’re working. She maintains that incredible vulnerability when I see her,” said the Black Swan Oscar winner who balled throughout Arrival when she was five months pregnant last year. It was through Mike Nichols that the duo became acquainted with each other.

Hanks, who worked with Adams on Steven Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can and Nichol’s Charlie Wilson’s War, said that when Adams first appeared as Brenda Strong in Spielberg’s caper, “The local 50 guys asked who is that woman playing Brenda Strong? Where did she come from? What food did they feed her as a child to become Brenda Strong? She’s a vision. She’s a plane so stellar that telescopes are needed.” Hanks recounted Adams’ path from dinner theater, to landing her first film role in 1999’s Drop Dead Gorgeous which encouraged the actress to move to Los Angeles to pursue a professional acting career.

Adams in her speech remembered how she never wanted to mess up a line in front of Hanks because he was a role model. During production on Charlie Wilson’s War, the sound production assistant had to move Adams’ mic, “because my heart was pounding so loud” said the actress; she was that nervous about potentially flubbing up in front of Hanks.

And while Stewart and Adams shared a small scene in a country house in Walter Salles’ On the Road, it was akin to a little-big sister relationship for the Twilight actress. But for Adams, “I was lactating through my dress. She was cool, just smoking and I’m trying to be cool with the young girls while I’m lactating” joked the actress.

Amy Adams Receive “Giffoni Experience Award”

Amy Adams Receive “Giffoni Experience Award”

Amy attended today the Giffoni Festival in which she received the Giffoni Experience Award. Below, the translated article right from the festival website:

Amy Adams won the jury of Giffoni Film Festival with small-great gestures, like heart-closed hands, and succeeded in the incredible mission of silencing the room, all concentrated in an ecstatic silence.

To a girl who asked her for advice on the world of the show, she said, “I’ve never been a good at making spectacles, but I understand that you never have to take it on the staff or rewrite it, but turn on the page, start over again Zero, never stop studying and believing. And you tell him that a young man was shy … actually he is still there.” While trying to keep responding, she excites, and with her glossy eyes adds: “Sorry, my daughter is in the front row and is trying to make me laugh at all costs. Incidentally, I called Aviana in honor of your beautiful country where I was born and where I still feel at home. Here people open the doors of your home and invite you to dinner even if you know them just and you do not feel uncomfortable to accept. That’s why I could not wait to come to Giffoni and come back very soon.

A swearwoman has asked her with what criterion he chooses roles: “Now that I am aging, it is important for me to choose stories that can help people, something that leaves the mark.” Among the roles that hit her most in the foreground, she reserves it to the latest work, Arrival, where he talks with aliens as an expert semiologist and a boy in the room thanked her for this movie, that helped him to choose his profession. And she, said getting the Giffoni Experience Award, could not be more proud of it.

The message of this work – she later added – is the promotion of the sense of unity among the peoples at a time when one can only talk about war. I know, I’m an idealist but I really hope we often realize that conflicts are not taking us anywhere and that we need to find a way to communicate. I say this for you, for the new generations who look to life and see you here at Giffoni, all together, it seems to me an excellent first step in this direction, in you I have all my hopes.” And about desires and dreams for the future, at least one would like to make it, or two: “I would like to try again in a musical and I would still work with Patty Jenkins (director of the acclaimed Wonder Woman with Gal Gadot, ndr.), One of the first directors with whom I collaborated in my career, a very talented woman.” The link with the worlds of superheroes is not lacking, as at the end of the year she will be back as Lois Lane reporter alongside her Superman / Henry Cavill in Justice League sums of all the most famous DC Comics characters, Batman included.
