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."
