Follow-up Post: Amy Adams Takes Emma Thompson's Spot
Prior to the Oscar nominations I had predicted an "all winner's cast" for the Best Actress Oscar nominations.
Yet, when the Oscar nominations came out I quickly checked to see if my predictions were correct. And NO! Almost, but not quite. Amy Adams had been nominated. But who's place did she take. That's right...the spot of Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks).
I must admit, I was a little surprised at how cold Oscar was to Saving Mr. Banks (just one nomination total for the film, Thomas Newman's score in the original score category).
And who took her spot. Amy Adams for American Hustle, a film the Academy was very hot towards.
A red carpet regular, this will be Amy Adam's fifth nomination, but the first in the lead category (she had been nominated previously for Junebug, Doubt, The Fighter, and The Master).
Wanted to follow up on my prediction her. I still don't see Adams as the winner in this category.
The Oscar seems like Cate Blanchett's to win (Blue Jasmine), but perhaps I'm just all around under estimating Amy's chances...and perhaps they'll decide "well, since each of them already has one..."
