From Penelope Cruz to Rachel Weisz to Emily Blunt what a weak class it is
Amy Adams, "Sunshine Cleaning"
Previous nominations or wins:
Nominee, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, "Junebug," (2006)
Nominee, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, "Doubt," (2009)
Pros: Adams gives one of her strongest performances as a woman desperate to succeed in this dark, dark comedy. "Sunshine" was a surprise spring indie hit after being thought of as a Sundance Film Festival bust a year earlier.
Cons: The fact "Sunshine" was released so long ago may not help Adams unless Overture begins a significant campaign for the film and its actors.
