Amy Adams Birthday Project

Wow...things are awfully quiet on the Amy Adams front. I wish I had some new pictures or info to post here, but I don't. Amy wasn't at the UK Premiere of 'Miss Pettigrew lives for a day' so I presume she's still in Vancouver working on 'Night at the Museum 2'. Filming ends in Canada in September 08.

In the meantime, the lovely people at 'Amy Adams Fan' and the 'Meerkats' forum members have decided to launch a Birthday Project in the honor of Amy Adams to celebrate her upcoming 34th birthday.

"The point of this project is for fans from all around the world to gather together and make a collective and creative effort to wish our favorite actress a happy birthday. We are going to put together a Birthday Project that consists of your letters, poetry, fan art and photographs inspired by Amy Adams; perhaps to give something back for all of the amazing films and entertainment that she has provided us throughout the years. The book will be available electronically on this website and will also be mailed to Amy herself."

Amy Adams wins 'Best Actress' Saturn Award

Excellent news here -- Amy Adams took home the 'Best Actress' award at the Saturn Awards 2008, held yesterday evening at the Universal Hilton Hotel in Universal City.

"Enchanted" won two other major awards including 'Best fantasy film' and 'Best Music' which went to the legendary Alan Menken. Congratulations to Disney & the "Enchanted" team, but also kudos to the voters of the Saturn Awards who recognized their wonderful talent!

So far, I haven't seen any pictures from the event but I doubt Amy was there to receive her award. By the way, in case you didn't know, she is also nominated for a Teen Choice Award. The ceremony will air on Fox on August 4th, 2008. You can vote for Amy here.

The UK Premiere of 'Miss Pettigrew lives for a day' is tonight at the Edinburgh Film Festival so I hope Amy will be there with the cast & crew to present the movie!

I'm back online! WOO-HOO!!

Hello hello hello :)

Woo-hoo I'm finally back online!! I'd like to say a big thank you to you all for the very sweet messages and comments I received in the past two weeks. I recently moved from the UK to France and didn't have any online connection during quite a while. What a nightmare! I couldn't update this blog but, fortunately, it sounds like it was pretty quiet around Amy's world so you didn't miss much!

From now on, I'll be able to post more regular updates as I usually did -- promise ;) Thanks again for the support and lots of love to y'all!

Amy Adams joins Entertainment Weekly's next A-list

Hollywood is full of celebrities, but few stars. True film stardom--the power to draw huge crowds on opening weekend--has belonged to an elite few for decades. EW interviewed studio execs, producers, and agents to find out who is most likely to become the next Will Smith or Julia Roberts. It turns out Amy Adams and a new generation of actors (James McAvoy, Shia LeBeouf, Katherine Heigl, Anne Hathaway...) are jostling to join the A-list ranks!

Amy Adams


'Charlie Wilson's War' and 'Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day'

$1.1 billion

Over $4 million

There are few actresses that everyone in Hollywood seems to love, but right now Adams is everybody's sweetheart. "She's a total star," says one top talent agent. "She's really versatile. She can do comedy or drama, studio movie or weird indie. She's got it all."

After scoring an Oscar nom two years ago for her charmingly offbeat supporting role in the indie Junebug, Adams has proved the range and depth of her talent, tackling broad comedy (Talladega Nights), upscale drama (Charlie Wilson's War), and a mainstream family musical (Enchanted). That fairy-tale film, which earned $340 million worldwide, endeared her not just to girls, but to the industry.

"She has the most appealing nature," says one producer. "If Walt Disney had not created Snow White, Amy Adams would have been that person." Now she needs to stop sharing the screen with high-wattage stars and focus on becoming one herself.

Back-to-back features with Meryl Streep: 'Doubt,' based on the Broadway play, and 'Julie & Julia,' an adaptation of the best-selling memoir.

Amy Adams walks back home after lunch

Amy Adams is increasingly paparrazied. Not sure if it's a good thing or not. I remember that she said in an interview she didn't necessarily mind because she knows that the most interesting thing photographers will find is for instance seeing her eating in a Mexican restaurant. She will never be caught with a 'hollywood diva-behaviour' (but we all knew that already, eh?). Anyways-- she is pictured below walking back home after having lunch on June 3, 2008.

Amy Adams in "Standing Still" (2005)

"Standing Still" is finally out on DVD in the UK and we now have a few videos clips of the movie featuring Amy. It tells the story of Michael (Adam Garcia, who played Fiyero in the London version of "Wicked" opposite Idina Menzel) and Elise (Amy Adams) who are about to get married and decide to gather their high school and college friends together.

The MTV Movie Awards fiasco!

Despite what the Los Angeles Times announced earlier yesterday, Amy Adams didn't show up at the MTV Movie Awards. I bet the nominees were told a few days before the show if they won or not.

Amy didn't win a single award (they went to Johnny Depp, Ellen Page and Briana Evigan & Robert Hoffman for, respectively, "Best Comedic Performance", "Best Actress" and "Best Kiss"). C'mon this is clearly a popular vote as opposed to a performance-related award!

In a way, I guess I'm glad she didn't show up because it would have been a total waste of time. In fact, she's probably being very professionnal as usual and chose to rehearse for "Night at the Museum 2" rather than go to this (useless) ceremony!

Cheer up Meerkats -- when the time comes, we'll definitely get our Amy Adams dose, but for more respected events :-) I'll post videos of "Standing Still" and "Cruel Intentions 2" in the days to come and we still have the "Miss Pettigrew lives for a day" European Premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival to look forward to. Amy's presence in Scotland has not been confirmed but I stopped trusting magazines/newspapers anyways coz they keep announcing that she will be there when in fact she's not coming (remember the American Idol fiasco?).

Altogether now: "Amy, we looooooooooooove you!!"
