Amy Adams Is Full Of Crap


Let me clear from the beginning. I love and adore Amy Adams and will always love Amy Adams unless she does something stupid like have sex with Patrick Dempsey or something along those lines. However, with all of that being said, she is utterly full of crap when she says that she is relieved she didn't win the Academy Award for her performance in Junebug. She says, "I wasn't prepared for the kind of attention that would have brought. And I'm terrified of public speaking. "(During the ceremony) ...I turned to my boyfriend (artist and actor Darren Le Gallo) and said, 'What if I win?' I think I'm the only person in Oscar history that looks relieved at the announcement of somebody else's name."

This might be some great rationalizing, and make a good sound bite for her Enchanted promotional tour, but it also complete crap. Everyone wants to win. Even if you don't think you have a chance in hell of winning, you want to win. I didn't hear Amy running around last year telling everyone, "I hope I don't win. I can't handle the pressure if I win." Did any of you hear her say that? No, because it didn't happen. How do you think Rachel Weisz feels? The winner of the award probably is saying, "I don't give a f**k. No matter what happens in the rest of my career, I won an Academy Award. No one can take that away from you. Just ask Marisa Tomei."

It does sound like a good rationalization. I'm sure it was just a way to waylay additional questions about it.

I'm sure it's horrible having to answer the same question every interview: You were nominated for an Oscar, how did it feel losing it?

Marisa Tomei won an Oscar? For what? That horrible movie, "In the Bedroom"?

I thought it was just an honor to be nominated. ;)

If she won, she would be parading it all over town a la Halle Berry. It's just a poor excuse to cover up why she thinks she should have won. Doing B-list movies with Patrick Demsey isn't exactly the fast track to another Academy Award nomination and she realizes it.

Hmm so I take this as a "negative" as the answer to a past blind vice? Amy and Patrick were the big guesses.

Personally she reminds me a lot of Avril Lavigne (!!)

Marisa Tomei got her Academy Award for "My Cousin Vinnie", as far as I remember, I'm too lazy to do some research right now.

And so we had another BI hint here...?
