About Amy Adams

Amy Adams is an American actor and singer. She is the recipient of two Golden Globe Awards and has received five nominations each from the Academy Award and BAFTA Award ceremonies. She was named one of 100 most influential people by Time magazine in 2014, and Forbes ranked her as one of the highest-paid actresses in the world in 2014 and 2016.

Adams began her career on stage performing in dinner theater and went on to make her feature film debut in Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999). After moving to Los Angeles, she made several appearances on television and in B-movies, before starring in Steven Spielberg's 2002 biopic Catch Me If You Can with Leonardo DiCaprio. Adams's breakthrough role came in the 2005 independent film Junebug, in which her portrayal of a young pregnant woman earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress nomination. The lead role of a princess in the commercially successful Disney musical film Enchanted (2007) proved to be a major turning point in Adams' career.

Adams received three more Oscar nominations for her supporting roles in the dramas Doubt (2008), The Fighter (2010), and The Master (2012). The year 2013 marked the beginning of the most successful period in Adams' career. That year, she played reporter Lois Lane in the superhero film Man of Steel and a troubled con artist in David O. Russell's film American Hustle; for the latter, she won a Golden Globe Award and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress. She won a second consecutive Golden Globe Award for portraying artist Margaret Keane in the comedy-drama Big Eyes (2014). The year 2016 proved to be another key year for Adams; she reprised the role of Lois Lane in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, her highest-grossing release, and garnered acclaim for her performances in the science fiction film Arrival and the thriller Nocturnal Animals.
