Amy Adams who has been nominated multiple times, but has yet to win is absolutely stellar in “The Master” as the wife of our highly praised teacher.However, the problem with the picture is that not many have seen it, so the buzz of her performance has yet to reach the masses.Furthermore, her work has been overshadowed by her co-stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman (Supporting Actor) and Joaquin Phoenix (Lead Actor).
Jacki Weaver the unseen matriarch of “Silver Linings Playbook” delivers a quiet role.It’s not in your face enough to be remembered by the audience in my opinion, she more of an emotional arc for the picture which works, but it’s not a performance you talk about after leaving the theater.
Let’s talk about our two front-runners Sally Field and Anne Hathaway. Field is indeed fierce and captivating as the wife of Abraham Lincoln; she brings intensity, a charm and likability to a character that audiences will remember vividly each time they watch the picture. She is indeed the perfect balance to her co-star Daniel Day-Lewis, which sums up quite well what a supporting actress’ role plays with our lead character.
So in the end, Hathaway will indeed take the victory.If there is an upset, it will be by Field who has quite a career on Hathaway and she might have some peers looking to award her for her fine work in “
Lincoln.” However, at this point I’d say Anne is a lock she’s already swept most of the supporting actress trophies this award season and only one more waits for her: Oscar!
