Isla Fisher is a second hand Amanda Seyfried.
Amy Adams is beyond gorgeous and she looks half her age. She's stunning.
Also I liked LA Confidental but I don't get the big deal over the acting. Spacey and Cromwell were solid but nothing special and I really don't understand why Basinger received a nod much less the actual trophy. I liked Crowe though. Then again I probably need to revisit that film.
Watch Isla Fisher win an Oscar first before Amy Adams.
As for Hathaway, if ever she wins, I'd rank that wins superior to Jolie (sorry just not a fan of this win), Connelly, Hudson, and Leo.
Amy Adams is gorgeous especially for her age. Even more gorgeous than Hathaway is now.
Isla Fisher may be the bargain bin Adams but Jenna Fischer is probably the dowdiest of the triplets.
I guess the reason why Amy never won was really, despite being nominated four times, she never came close. Not even second on any of the four times.
For Junebug, it was Weisz and then possible Michelle Williams. She was next in line though.
For Doubt, it was clearly Davis vs. Cruz. If anyone will cast their vote for Doubt, it'll be for Davis.
For The Fighter, it was Leo vs. Steinfeld. If anyone will cast their vote for The Fighter, it'll be for Leo (ONE THING I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND AT ALL).
For The Master, it was all the Hathaway show. Then Sally as a far second.
I'd wish she was nominated for Enchanted though. I have that in my personal five that year. I had her win for Junebug, and I like her Fighter nomination but she's not in my five that year. Haven't seen The Master yet.

Isla Fisher was nomination worthy in Bachelorette.
As for Amy Adams, she should have won for The Fighter.
Was she any good in The Trouble With the Curve? I thought at the beginning of the 2012, she was predicted to get both a Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nominations. Then again, maybe that would've been more likely if the film had been a huge hit?

Working with Spike Jonze works in her favor -- 4 Oscar nominations for his actors, almost 5 with Cameron Diaz, and they tend to be interesting, off-kilter roles.
The problem with Amy Adams is she gets nominated for giving decent to good performances in underwritten roles in Oscar-bait films, and gives outstanding performances in movies to which the Academy won't give the time of day. "Junebug" was the closest, but even that film was too small to get any Oscar attention save her performance in it.
With Jonze, I think she'll have the best of both worlds: an Oscar-friendly director who tackles the sort of rich, complex characters that Adams can shine in. Of course, she might not have the best female role therein, what with Rooney Mara and Samantha Morton in it as well. She seems to have the one big female role in David O. Russell's next, so that's promising.
In short, yes, I think she will win eventually, when the role is interesting and the film embraceable by the Academy.
She did win something. ok SB doesnt count for anything but Im still glad someone decided to honor her. I loved her speech at the end. She is just humble and appreciative.
I hope one day Amy will win, but she has to want it. And by that I mean she is going to have to campaign.
And in a prior year, she tied for Critics Choice for Junebug, I believe. I mean, she certainly is extremely likable and sweet - I don't think she's the next Thelma Ritter by any means.
Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.
I love Amy Adams, but in two years of acting, El Chastain's already managed to turn her into Poor-Man's-Jessica-Chastain.
