Open Thread.Best Amy Adams Performances?

by Nathaniel R

WithSharp Objectsdebuting tonight on HBO (Yes,we'll cover it here),let's talk Amy Adams.Why should film twitter have all the listing fun?Talk Film Societyasked people to list their 3 favorite performances were and I was stunned how quickly I came tomy definitive answer.

  • Junebug (2005)
  • The Fighter (2010)
  • Enchanted (2007)

You've got her full range displayed;endearing dramedic instincts,stealth pathos with deep soul beneath the exteriors of women who seem ordinary at first glance,her star charisma and comic invention are all over her best work.

And to make the question a bit more interesting.Is there a performance of hers other people love that you just don't?My vote there is forThe Master().I think she's terribly miscast and I couldn't ever figure out the draw of what she was doing or how people figured it was earned within the film -- especially for an actual Oscar nomination.Those are hard to come by ["for other people"- self-editing note]  But to each their own in opinion-land,right?

"Junebug"is more than just Amy Adams

Lynn Lee revisiting Junebug,which celebrates its 10th anniversary this week…

Junebugis best known as the film that launched Amy Adams' into the A list,and deservedly so.  Her wonderfully layered portrayal of the bright-eyed,meerkat-loving Ashley,should have taken home the supporting actress Oscar for 2005 (with apologies to Rachel Weisz).  But for a change let's talk about the best scene in the movie,in which another,more elusive character suddenly,if fleetingly,comes into focus.

I'm referring to the scene in which George (the always-welcome,perennially undervalued Alessandro Nivola),the returning native who's brought his new wife Madeleine (Embeth Davidtz) to visit his small North Carolina hometown,attends a church social with his family.  By this point,Madeleine's outsider status has already been made starkly clear: a long-limbed,graceful,effortlessly stylish and posh-accented art dealer whom George met and married in the big city,she stands out without even trying,like a greyhound among border collies.  George's status,on the other hand,is more ambiguous.
