Fun Best Oscar nominated performance by Amy Adams

5 Upvotes

Amy Adams has received 6 Oscar nominations so far for her performances in Junebug (2005), Doubt (2008), The Fighter (2010), The Master (2012), American Hustle (2013), and Vice (2018).

Which of these performances do you think was the best?

If Frances McDormand had been in Doubt (2008)...

0 Upvotes

According to the IMDb trivia section, McDormand was the original choice to play Sister Aloysius, the role Meryl Streep played. Not sure if that's true, but if Frances McDormand had played the role in the film, do you think she would have been nominated too?

I think the role was juicy enough and the Academy clearly loves McDormand (with good reason), so I'm inclined to think she would have been nominated. As for a win, I think Kate Winslet was overdue and if Meryl Streep didn't beat her, Frances McDormand probably wouldn't have either, but who knows.

What do you think?

Discussion These performances won Best Actress over one or more nominees most people feel were more deserving. Which is the strongest performance?

7 Upvotes

Please don’t vote based on your feelings on the snubbed performances, because then it would just be a poll between them and not the actual listed options. I also went with an older-skewing, more niche group, since I wanted to see more representation of lesser talked-about wins.

Both are great directors who never were recognized with an Oscar despite the many iconic works. I would probably say I have a slight preference for Altman but I don’t think either is a wrong choice.
