Screen Actors Guild Nominations: Where Is Amy Adams?!

Screen Actors Guild

Following the release of the nominations for the Screen Actors Guild awards on Wednesday, I felt compelled to comment.

Now, I do not normally care about awards ceremonies, but one thing is really bugging me. Nominations for The Master.

I did not like the film, (a review can be read here) but I did think the performances of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Adams were fantastic. I was less sure of the performance of Joaquin Phoenix, but he has predictably stolen the headlines after not being nominated.

Some have put this down to his recent comments about awards ceremonies, some claimed it was his chewing of the scenery, whilst others claimed it was because critics didn’t like the film itself. Whatever the reason, he didn’t get a nomination, but I am not too fussed about that.

What does bother me however is the fact that Amy Adams didn’t get a nomination, despite being by far one of the best performances I’ve seen this year.

If there were any justice she would sweep everything, but given the way this sort of thing works, she might not actually win anything.

The awards industry is corrupt and broken, and this is simply further proof.

Amy Adams deserves and Oscar for her performance. Simple as.
