ABC Apologizes After Mistakenly Listing Tom Hanks, Amy Adams as Oscar Nominees

If there's one name that the majority was expecting to see on the Academy's list this year, it's #AmyAdams's. The actress couldn't repeat her storied Oscar nomination history with her performance in 20th Century Women, an emotional and heartfelt movie where Bening plays a single mom and landlord who enlists the help of two bold and strong-willed young women to help raise her son. "She was fantastic and drove the story beautifully".

That films like Arrival are so rare isn't a conspiracy so much as a logical result of an industry that produces film content written and directed by (white) men.

This is true. Arrival has been getting wonderful reviews, and fans attribute its success largely to Amy Adams herself.

Her portrayal of Susan Morrow, an art gallery owner whose ex-husband sends her the draft of a puzzling and risky novel, is sleek and subtle.

So no wonder Amy Adams struggled to hide her heartbreak at a Screen Actors Guild event following her sensational Oscars snub on Tuesday.

The film's Oscar nominations makes it one of the most sought after movies in the country presently and another weekend in theaters should allow it to cross that coveted $100 million mark in the U.S. The re-release will include exclusive bonus footage featuring thought-provoking commentary and a behind-the-scenes look from Director Denis Villeneuve, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and other cast and filmmakers.

On May 7 past year , a Tesla Model S with the semi- autonomous autopilot system activated, was involved in a fatal crash.

We'll never know for certain why Adams wasn't deemed good enough for the Oscars this year.

We sense her fear and uncertainty as she heads off on her first jaunt inside one of the visiting craft - a genuinely spooky moment, thanks to all that great direction and production design - but Adams is careful enough that we also sense how her scientific curiosity wins out. Isabelle Huppert took home the award for "Elle". And had Adams been nominated, as almost everyone expected her to be, I would be rooting for her to win on her sixth try. Actors of color were nominated in each of the four acting categories, and three of the five nominees for Best Supporting Actress are non-white.

Can You Be Too Subtle For The Oscars?

Reaction to Adams' Oscar snub on social media was unrelenting. The subtle way that Adams conveys all her character's skills and emotion - intelligence, regret, hope, fascination and sorrow - are perfectly judged, and tonally of a piece with Villeneuve's low-key direction. There's no radical physical transformation that'd require her to lose a unsafe amount of weight; no grandiose scene where she explodes, producing tailor-made for GIFs and reaction shots and a multitude of montages in its wake.

Best Picture recognition for "Hell or High Water" alongside "Arrival", "Fences", "Hacksaw Ridge", "Hidden Figures", "La La Land", "Lion", "Manchester By the Sea" and "Moonlight" also surprised award pundits.

"It's a odd feeling to celebrate and feel sad at the same time".
