Amy Adams to be Honoured by Palm Springs Film Festival for 'Arrival'
The Palm Springs International Film Festival is set to present Amy Adams with the Chairman's Award for her performance in Arrival. It will take place at the annual awards gala on January 2 at the Palm Springs Convention Center.
“Throughout her career, Amy Adams has continuously challenged herself with complex roles,” said Festival Chairman Harold Matzner. “This is reaffirmed in her most recent project, ‘Arrival,’ where she anchors the film with an award-winning performance as a prominent linguist, Dr. Louise Banks, as she attempts to communicate with creatures in one of a dozen spacecrafts that visit Earth. It is our honor to present the Chairman’s Award to Amy Adams.”
Adams is being regarded as something of a hard luck Oscar's story, having been nominated for Doubt, Junebug, The Fighter, The Master, and American Hustle in the past, without a win to her name. Here's hoping that Arrival or Nocturnal Animals finally land her the win she's earned.
