Amy Adams, a Delightfully Underrated Actress

Amy Adams caught my eye when I saw The Fighter. She played¬†Charlene Fleming with such an intensity that I still haven’t forgotten that performance. That was when I started to pay more attention to since then. Now I didn’t like American Hustle ¬†but her determined performance was overlooked last year at the Academy Awards. She so far has a total of five nominations, 4 supporting and 1 lead, and yet not a single win. People always complain about Leonardo DiCaprio not winning a single Academy Award, even to the point that he has become an internet meme. I personally think that Amy Adams should have won a long time ago but this year may be her time, with Big Eyes on the horizons, but she hasn’t quite reached Dicaprio levels of outrage towards the lack of Academy Award wins. She has done so many delightful and intense performances that has quickly made her my favorite actress working today.
