Amy Adams in Max Mara for ‘Big Eyes’ premiere: will she get an Oscar nom?


This is going to make me sound dumb, but I had no idea that the artist Margaret Keane is still alive! She is! And she helped Amy Adams get into character for Tim Burton’s Big Eyes. Apparently, Keane is totally happy with Burton making a film about her life. Keane even attended the Big Eyes premiere last night. These are some photos from the premiere. Amy wore this green Max Mara shirt-dress thing. I actually like it. This is a beautiful color on Amy, she looks comfortable, she’s got pockets, her hair looks amazing and everything is working. I have to say though… Margaret Keane stole the red carpet!! She’s 87 years old and she’s still killing it.

I have to say though, Amy didn’t look too happy at the premiere. Big Eyes was supposed to be another one of her big Oscar-contender films and people thought she was going to be shortlisted for all of the awards. Big Eyes did pick up some Golden Globes nominations (for Best Comedy, and Best Comedic Actor and Actress for Christoph Waltz and Amy), but Amy was shut out of the SAGs and the Critics Choice. My thought: Jennifer Aniston took Amy’s place this year. I wonder if that will happen with the Oscar nominations too? Will Aniston make the Best Actress shortlist and Amy will be shut out? People have said that Big Eyes isn’t really a great film, but when has that ever mattered? Besides, Amy is usually the best part of even lukewarm films.

    I think she looks amazing here (the colour of her dress compliments her hair colour so much) but I don’t see her getting an Oscar nomination this year sadly. It’s a shame because I feel like she’s one of those people who’s constantly putting out great work. I haven’t seen Big Eyes yet though so I can’t say anything about the film or her performance in it.

      I love Amy to death, but I don’t like the pratice of the Oscars to award someone for their career and not for a particular performance. I haven’t seen Big Eyes so I can’t comment on her performance.
      The Oscars are a popularity contest and the person with the best PR wins, I know,
      Having said that, I would love Amy to be nominated. I would also love Jennifer Aniston to be nominated too.

      • Dani2 says:

        Yeah, I definitely can’t argue about the Oscars being a popularity contest, there are so many great performances that get overlooked because of politics. And I don’t think you need to worry about Jen getting an Oscar nom, she seems to be somewhat of a sure thing at this point :)

      • Tippy says:

        A couple of weeks ago, without even watching Cake’s trailer, people scoffed at the notion that Jennifer Aniston would receive any awards recognition.

        Now a Best Actress Oscar nomination for Aniston is a virtual certainty and the competition is far
        from insurmountable.

    Tim Burton does something for me. I would so hard.

  3. Marianne says:

    Its still possible but personally I think the nominations will be

    Julianne Moore (Still Alice)
    Reese Witherspoon (Wild)
    Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl)
    Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything)
    Marion Cotillard (Two Days, One Night)

    • Dani2 says:

      I have a feeling Jennifer Aniston will replace Marion even though I’ve seen Marion’s film and I loved her performance and it definitely deserves the love it’s been getting from the various critics awards.

    • someonestolemyname says:

      I think Amy will get nominated again, Oscar loves to nominate her.

      I love her in films, she is such a great actress.
      I think she is one of the most beautiful women, so stunning yet can be understated when she chooses to be and still absolutely gorgeous.

      • lucy2 says:

        I agree. She’s gotten 5 nominations in the past 8 or 9 years I think, so the Academy does love her (and deservedly so). I could see her still getting a nomination. My guess is Julianne, Felicity, Amy, Marion, and Rosamund. But who knows.

        I also agree that she is beautiful and also understated. That’s a very low key outfit to wear for a premiere, compared to some who show up to events like that in ball gowns or something too revealing for attention.

    I think her style is a little hit or miss but she looks lovely here. She doesn’t seem entirely present, maybe she’s tired or distracted? It’s got to be hard to be “on” so much in the industry.

  5. Sundry says:

    Amy Adams is the kind of actress any directors would want. She will get her turn sooner or later.
    I feel like Oscars has become less fun ever since Gwyneth Paltrow won one. Bars just keep getting lower and lower every year.

  6. lunchcoma says:

    It sounds like it’s not going to be Amy’s year. She’s competing against several other women who were the best part of bad films, and some others who were very good in very good films.

    The take at LaineyGossip is that she’ll eventually get her award, and I agree.

  7. Phenix says:

    I’m just here for Christoph Waltz.

  8. loli says:

    Good, if Witherspoon wins, I think I am most serious film students/critics/ lovers will pass on Oscars as a credible source of… anything.

  9. Scarlet Vixen says:

    My hair Is almost exactly like Amy Adam’s–color, texture, and right now it’s the same length. I have a wrap shirt dress in that same color (we called it ‘olive drab’ in the Army) and I love it soooo much. So, I happen to think she looks absolutely amazing. :-D

    I love christoph. I want his babies!

  12. dj says:

    Go Amy Adams! I hope she gets her due in at least an Oscar nomination. I will be so dissappointed if Jen A. takes that spot. In referencing the Sony e-mail hacks: I also want Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence to put in their contracts that they get the highest back-end percentages in their movies. Anyone saying I’m not a feminist after that hopefully understands equal pay for equal work no matter the genders!

  13. I Choose Me says:

    Is it just me or is there some not so fuzzy feelings between Amy and Christoph? I’m photo assumptioning of course but their body language seem off.
