Amy Adams is the talk of Twitter today as SAG Award nominees are announced, and not because she’s on the list; rather, most feel she was unfairly left off after her highly-touted turn in “The Master”.

However, she has earned another prestigious award: the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Cinema Vanguard Award, which will be presented to her on January 31st in L.A.

“Amy Adams is one of the gutsiest and most gifted actors working today,” said SBIFF’s executive director, Roger Durling. “She embodies what the Cinema Vanguard Award is all about, and after her performance in ‘The Master’ the time has come to recognize her talent and versatility.”

As for the SAG Awards, the nominees for Best Supporting Actress are:

Sally Field / Mary Todd Lincoln – “LINCOLN”
Anne Hathaway / Fantine – “LES MISÉRABLES”
Helen Hunt / Cheryl – “THE SESSIONS”
Nicole Kidman / Charlotte Bless – “THE PAPERBOY”
Maggie Smith / Muriel Donnelly – “THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL”

    ‘The Master’ is the great motion picture of 2012. Joaquin and Amy are truly deserving. ‘Lincoln’ delivered great performances but the film is almost unbearable to watch. The values and mores of the the 20th and 21 century crept into the reality of a 19th century based film. The truth was vacated for turn of the dime political correctness. The great story of freedom from slavery needed no such window dressing. ‘The Master’ has a hard watch too but for all the right reasons. Its bold humanity and hard truth wer breathtaking to witness.
