Amy Adams Fans Were Pissed That She Didn’t Walk Away With A Golden Globe This Year

Amy Adams will undoubtedly be nominated for an Academy Award for her supporting role as Lynne Cheney in Vice, but that doesn’t mean she’s the favorite to win.

Last night’s Golden Globes awards ceremony was just one of several precursor awards leading up to the Oscars next month. Adams, who was up for two awards — one for Vice and the other for her starring role as Camille Preaker in HBO’s Sharp Objects — walked away empty-handed, losing to Regina King (the favorite this season for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk) for the former and Patricia Arquette (who earned raves for her role in Escape at Dannemora) for the latter.

Adams has been nominated for an Academy Award five times: for Junebug (2005), Doubt (2008), The Fighter (2010), The Master (2012), and American Hustle (2013) respectively. She lost each time and, if she loses on her sixth nod, she’ll be in the company of Oscar bridesmaids like the late Deborah Kerr (who received an Honorary Academy Award in 1994) and Glenn Close (who might finally go for the gold if her win for The Wife last night is any indication).

Here are the facts, guys: Amy Adams is one of the most critically acclaimed actresses in the world. She just…loses out on awards now and again. And her fans — wouldn’t you know it — are not happy about it.

The night started off promisingly enough.

But then…the double whammy of losses came.

The face says it all.


This Sharp Objects GIF sure came in handy.

Just ask her fans: Amy Adams screaming into a dress was peak television last year.

And another GIF definitely captures the moment.

Poor Amy Adams.

We repeat: POOR AMY ADAMS.

No offense to Patricia Arquette, obviously.

This is an excellent question.

This is another excellent question.

And fans are still (rightfully) sore about this snub.

Sure, we can go with that.

The answer to this is “maybe.” Maybe.

It’s worth noting that Adams has won a Golden Globe twice in her career. She won in 2013 for American Hustle (but eventually lost the Oscar to Cate Blanchett’s performance in Blue Jasmine) and won again in 2014 for Big Eyes (for which she did not receive an Academy Award nomination). Adams is also the recipient of countless other accolades from such organizations as the National Board of Review, the Screen Actors Guild, and the Sundance Film Festival.

Relax, fans. We doubt she’s taking it too hard.
