Amy Adams in a peplum’d Celine at the SAGs: lovely & perpetually snubbed?

The 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

I don’t think it’s going to happen this year for Amy Adams. This year, Glenn Close is the “she’s been around forever, give her the Oscar” nominee. Amy can’t even win that title, of the Most Deserving And Perpetually Snubbed. To be fair, Amy seems okay with it. For now. She’s been nominated across the board for Vice this year, and she was at the SAG Awards last night. She watched as Emily Blunt won the SAG for Supporting Actress for A Quiet Place (Regina King wasn’t nominated). Amy went out of her comfort zone with this look – a black Celine gown with a very puffy peplum. There were a lot of “structural” looks on the SAG red carpet, and this was a lower-key version of the trend. I honestly don’t hate it, but she could totally do better.

Here’s Rachel Brosnahan in Dior – this is very low-key, right? I think the hemline is throwing me off – it looks more like a really nice summer dress than a gown for the SAGs. I feel like I would like this so much more if it had spaghetti straps and an extra three inches on the hem.

Yara Shahidi in Fendi. This is perfect for her, and perfect for her age (18). It’s a high-fashion look, but it’s also so, so fun.

Here’s Hugh Grant and his girlfriend/baby-mama/wife Anna Eberstein. I totally forgot that they got low-key married last year.

Mandy Moore overdid the bronzer, but her Boss (Hugo Boss) dress was honestly one of the better looks of the night. Very clean, simple.

    Adams isn’t being snubbed. She was good in Vice, but it was kind of role she (and a couple of dozen of her peers) could do in her sleep.

    Any of her fellow nominees deserve it over her this year.

  2. Laura says:

    Yara for the win!! My best dressed hands down. Best use of a sheer gown in years!

  3. Mimi says:

    I agree with the poster who said she’s not being snubbed. There’s never been a year where I felt she gave the best performance of those nominated. Some years I don’t even understand why she’s up for awards consideration. She just seems to be a perennial favorite for some reason, undeservedly so, but doesn’t get the same kind of backlash as a Jennifer Lawrence because she’s not always out there in your face. I’d love to see other actresses get some the opportunities Amy seems to always get in these high-profile roles.

    • L84Tea says:

      I agree. Amy Adams is a good actress, but never have I seen her in anything where she blew me away. She’s good, but she lacks something. I don’t know what it is, but, something.

    • Kerfuffle says:

      I mean, it’s all opinions, it’s entirely subjective, but I also completely disagree with you. Amy’s work in The Master absolutely blew away the actual Oscar winner that year (Anne Hathaway), not to mention I thought she gave the superior performance in The Fighter and could very arguably won for American Hustle.

    • Cdoggy says:

      Amy in Enchanted was a once in a lifetime accomplishment of the highest order in acting. I could watch the movie over and over again because she is just SO GOOD.

  4. S says:

    Amy Adams hair and makeup look great, but my dog has a chew toy that looks exactly like that dress.

    Yara Shahidi is young and gorgeous enough to pull this off, and definitely seems to be having fun, but sparkly onesie isn’t ever gonna be my favorite look on anyone.

    Honestly, no one really looks good here. Mandy Moore might be getting too used to her old age This Is Us look, because that dress paired with the severe hair ages her up a good decade.

  5. Mitzy says:

    Every time I watch Amy Adams, I think she doesn’t look like herself, she always seems off, like she is uncomfortable with herself. Like she wishes she was a bit better. I am not saying that she should be better, but it seems like she wishes she was.

    Nice bunion……………………….I do like the dress though and think she suits it.

    • Stubbylove says:

      I know! That bunion is the only thing I look at here and it looks like it friggin’ HURTS in those tight shoes ;(.
      Love Yara & Mandy’s looks. Mandy’s come a looooong way.

  6. Barrett says:

    Hugh’s wife has fabulous legs but everything she wears is a super mini skirt. She could show them off w less of a teen age mini skirt and “desperate” look at me outfit!

    But she married Hugh, he seems happy, she a career woman and MUST have a hell of a personality, sense of humor!!!

    • TaniaOG says:

      I can’t with Hugh. The fact that he basically had a collection of children, alternating between two different baby mamas just skeeves me out. Not to mention that Jon Stewart said he was the biggest as*$hole to ever appear on his show. No thanks.

  7. Svea says:

    Amy will have her day. IMO no one can beat Patricia Arquette’s performance in Escape at Dannamora. From the first scene she was riveting.

  8. pacqueline djembe ngoya says:

    For me Amy Adams to the same problem as alicia vikander, they are good actress but they are not charismatic when you watch them play you are just bored.

    • Becks1 says:

      I agree – Amy seems like a lovely person but there is a lack of something. She almost reminds me of Julia Ormond – who was gorgeous, and got some big roles early on, and I thought she was a good actress – but she never quite broke through the way some other of her peers did. Sometimes there is just something missing – star quality?charisma? something – and its not the fault of the person. Julia Roberts has this “something” in abundance. I don’t think Amy does (again think she seems lovely, and I do think she is a good actress.)

  9. Lucy2 says:

    Wow, Surprised with all the criticism of Amy, I think she’s one of the most talented actresses out there, and well deserving of every nomination she’s gotten. I don’t think this is her year, again, but she will win sooner or later.
    I like Mandy ‘s dress. Yara is so pretty and is having fun.

    • Jadedone says:

      I’m with you I think she is very talented, I just watched her in Sharp Objects and she was spectacular.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      I totally think liking actors is subjective, but like…she’s legit. You don’t need “star quality” imo when you have her talent and instinct. I first saw her in Junebug and was like, yup, she’s crazy good and a natural and while I haven’t seen all of her movies I’ve never once seen her hit a false note.

  10. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Not bad. I don’t like the boob stitching on Rachel’s Dior, but that’s about it.

  11. Jadedone says:

    Hugh Grant is not aging well, dude looks rough

  12. Goran says:

    She wasn’t supposed to lose Supporting Actress. Almost every single expert was picking her to win, with Rachel Weisz as a mild alternate. She lost to a performance that (a) wasn’t even Oscar nominated and (b) had no lines. If anything, it shows how little passion and interest there in the film itself. She’s been nominated so often that I am beginning to wonder if voters are a bit blind to her when it comes to voting for her to win. She’s always the least exciting nominee — like, ‘oh, Amy Adams is nominated again, who cares’.

  13. Case says:

    I don’t find Amy Adams to be a compelling actress at all. She’s “good,” but not not…interesting?

    I would’ve loved for Rachel to win. She was just stunning in The Favourite.

  14. Lavinia says:

    Amy sometimes comes to the same dance studio as my daughter. She’s a really amazing dancer and so, so sweet to everyone. She’s truly a sweetheart and she seems to be perfectly happy with her life as it is 🙂
