De­nis Vil­leneuve dis­ap­pointed by Amy Adams’ Os­cars snub

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Af­ter Ac­tor Amy Adams (far right) failed to get nom­i­na­tion at the 2017 Os­cars for her crit­i­cally ac­claimed per­for­mance in the film Ar­rival, film­maker De­nis Vil­leneuve (right) has said it was re­ally hard for him to be­lieve that the ac­tor did not get any recog­ni­tion at the pres­ti­gious awards.

The sci­ence fic­tion drama bagged eight nom­i­na­tions at the Acad­emy, in­clud­ing best pic­ture and di­rec­tor. The 49-year-old film­maker was thrilled to find out his nom­i­na­tion and that the movie had re­ceived seven more nods but was up­set to see Adams not mak­ing it to the list. He said, “It was so strange. When they an­nounced, at one point we were like, I think, al­ready five nom­i­na­tions or some­thing like that, so we were like pop­ping the cham­pagne... When I saw that she was not (nom­i­nated), it was such a dis­ap­point­ment, be­cause she’s the soul, she was my muse. I owe her ev­ery­thing for Ar­rival. So when they an­nounced my name, it was like a strange mix of emo­tion. A lot of joy and sad­ness at the same time.”
