Amy Adams receives Oscar nomination

Not surprisingly, Amy Adams has been nominated for her supporting performance in "Doubt" opposite her co-star Viola Davis who did a lot of screaming to express her excitement on Oscar nomination morning, which she spent at the Four Seasons Hotel.

"I screamed in my husband's ear. He was sitting next to me," Davis said. The same was true when she called her mother back in Rhode Island and left voicemails for her sister and messages on some friends' answering machines. Davis lauded the ensemble effort that brought Doubt to life. "You are only as good as your partners," she said about the slew of acting nominations the film earned. And she has no time and reason for feeling competitive with fellow Doubt star Amy Adams, who also earned a nomination. "I love her too much and respect her too much," Davis said. "She is so wonderfully nuanced, and I am just happy we both got nominated."

Other nominees in the "Supporting female role" include Penelope Cruz, Taraji P. Henson and Marisa Tomei. Kate Winslet was nominated in the "Lead female role" so Amy does have a chance to win this time!

yeah, I was really happy Amy got nominated and definitely relieved that Kate wasn't, bc of the Golden Globes. Anyways, I think Amy's chances are HIGH, I like the other nominees but I've watched all the movies and they good, but their characters (and acting) wasn't quite stunning as Amy's. Let's cheer!
