Amy Adams won the award for Best Actress at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony. Adams took home the award Sunday night for her performance in “American Hustle” and believes her win last night validated her move to Hollywood 15 years ago.
She particularly thanked Stacy O’Neil, her manager, who sent her on her first audition.
“And, you know, my amazing team. I have to say, today is my 15, well not today exactly, but close, my 15-year anniversary of moving out to L.A.,” she said. “I walked into this woman’s office, Stacy O’Neil, who’s here tonight, and she sent me on my first audition. She’s still my manager…I just want to thank her so much for that feeling and so many more feelings.”
Adams beat the likes of Julie Delpy for “Before Midnight,” Julia-Dreyfus for “Enough Said,” Greta Gerwig for “Frances Ha” and Meryl Streep for “August: Osage County” to claim the award.
“American Hustle” is directed by David Russell, whom she described as an amazing writer who writes amazing roles for women. Although she has previously been nominated for “Enchanted,” “The Master,” and “Doubt,” this is Adams’ first Golden Globe win.
Also notable is the Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture award that went to Jennifer Lawrence for her role in “American Hustle.” Laurence beat out Sally Hawkins in “Blue Jasmine,” Lupita Nyong’o in “12 Years A Slave,” Julia Roberts in “August: Osage County” and June Squibb in “Nebraska.” This is Laurence’s second award at the Globes. Last year she won Best Actress for “Silver Linings Playbook”.
