Amy Adams Just Lost Her Sixth Oscar, So When Will It Be Her Time?

Amy Adams Just Lost Her Sixth Oscar

Yet again, Amy Adams has lost the Oscar.

This year, the six-time Academy Award nominee was up for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Lynne Cheney in Vice. The honor went to first-time Oscar nominee Regina King for If Beale Street Could Talk, which has many fans wondering when (and if) Adams will get her time to shine.

Adams was first nominated in 2006 for her performance in Junebug, followed by nods for Doubt in 2009, The Fighter in 2011, The Master in 2013, and American Hustle in 2014. Her nomination for Vice marked her fifth in the Best Supporting Actress category.

Thankfully, Adams had plenty of support. It was a true family affair, as Adams' mother, Kathryn, and her sisters Julie and Anna were her guests.

In 2017, Adams was snubbed for her performance in Arrival, which was nominated for eight Oscars itself.

"It is a little bittersweet," Arrival director Denis Villeneuve wrote in a statement. "Amy Adams is the soul of Arrival, so I’m profoundly sad she did not get a nomination this morning."


On the bright side, the honor went to King, who certainly deserved a moment in the spotlight.

Here's hoping Adams' biggest Oscar night is still to come.

The 91st Academy Awards took place Sunday, February 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. For the first time since 1989, there was no host. Instead, Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler opened the show and stars took turns presenting awards.
