The INSIDER Summary:
• Amy Adams was not nominated for an Oscar.
• She was previously nominated for best actress in a drama at the Golden Globes.
• The 42-year-old actress starred in “Arrival.”
• Many were surprised by the snub.
Nominations for the 89th annual Academy Awards were announced Tuesday morning. While sci-fi film “Arrival” was nominated for eight awards including best picture, adapted screenplay, and directing, many fans were surprised to see that the film’s leading lady Amy Adams was not among the nominees.
Adams was nominated for best actress in a drama at the 2017 Golden Globes. Isabelle Huppert took home the award for “Elle.”
Instead, Huppert, Natalie Portman (“Jackie”), Emma Stone (“La La Land”), and Meryl Streep (“Florence Foster Jenkins”) received nods.
It would have been Adams’ sixth Oscar nomination. The 42-year-old actress was the heart and soul of the emotional sci-fi thriller in which she starred as a linguist who works to achieve communication with life from another planet.
Fans, journalists, and other stars took to Twitter surprised by the snub.
Comparisons to Leonardo DiCaprio’s long Oscar wait are being made.
A lot of fans think Streep’s nomination should have gone to Adams.
Hopefully, not a trillion.
This is true. “Suicide Squad” was nominated for an achievement in makeup and hair styling.
There’s always next year.
The 89th Academy Awards will be held February 26 on ABC.
Lots of great nominees to be happy about, especially in the crafts. But golly gee Amy Adams missing in Actress?
