Best Actor (Joaquin Phoenix)Update: Amy Adams spoke to Variety about the film's nominations and had some very wise words in regards to the film's legacy.
Best Supporting Actor (Philip Seymour Hoffman)
Best Supporting Actress (Amy Adams)
When it comes to her co-stars in "The Master," four-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams is a woman of faith.
"The performances are so unique and transcendent really," Adams said of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix. "I'd work with Philip on every film if I could."
The actress, who juggled Oscar reaction interviews and a crying baby Thursday morning ("Sorry! Two-year olds!"), thinks Paul Thomas Anderson's religion-themed drama will be "just as brilliant 10 years down the road," best picture nomination or not. She hopes the Oscar attention will encourage more people to see the pic, or give it a second chance in some cases.
"The way that Paul crafts characters, everything speaks to his skill as a filmmaker," Adams said. "I hope people revisit it."Huge congratulations to everyone who worked on the film. The film joins "Boogie Nights" and "Magnolia" which were also nominated for 3 Oscars. For those who are disappointed that PTA and more of the crew weren't recognized for their effort, "Looper" director Rian Johnson said it best back in September...
I highly doubt an Oscar has a chance of earning The Master this year. But who knows, maybe if the academy made a big publicity push.And as I said on Twitter the other day, awards are great & certainly anything that brings attention to the film is a good thing. But they won't affect which films are remembered. Basically it's nice when they get it right. When they don't, it doesn't really change anything. The films that stand the test of time, will.
Pre-order "The Master" on Blu-ray or DVD.
