Amy Adams joins Christian Bale ‘VICE’ Special Screening and Q&A

On November 17, Annapurna realized a “Vice” special screening in Westwood, with the presence of writer/director/producer Adam McKay, Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Tyler Perry. Reviews are embargoed by now but social media reactions says that it’s a great movie and they’re coming to fight for the Oscar. Some reactions collected by The Playlist:

Dave Karger: Happy to report that #Vice is as entertaining, illuminating, and infuriating as Adam McKay’s last movie, The Big Short. The sharp screenplay and the astonishing Christian Bale are locks for nominations, and I’d predict makeup, Amy Adams for supporting, and Best Picture too.

Anne Thompson: Christian Bale does deliver an extraordinary performance in Vice that will score Oscar points. Amy Adams does too; she admires Lynne Cheney as a powerful pioneer woman. Tyler Perry met with Colin Powell, who made him read his book.

Scott Mantz: VICE: WOW! Bold, daring, very ambitious! Bravura writing & directing by Adam McKay! Gripping & riveting dark comedy! Tour-de-force performances by #ChristianBale & #AmyAdams! Bale will WIN the Oscar for Best Actor!

Eric Davis: #Vice is a bold and horrifying film about the abuse of power and its far-reaching and long-lasting consequences. Incredible performances (Bale, Adams, Carell, Rockwell are all fantastic), and McKay’s whip-smart, inventive storytelling keeps you invested & entertained

Gregory Ellwood: Vice is excellent filmmaking. Wish it found a way to explain Cheney’s motivations more but it’s main focus is the damage he has done. Bale is fantastic. Carrell is great. It’s likely Adams vs King for Supporting Actress.

Amy will be honored at the San Francisco Film Society’s Annual Awards with the ‘Peter J. Owens Award’ on December 3!

Awards Watch

Annual Fundraiser Benefits SFFILM’s Youth Education Programs and Marks the High Point of Awards Season in the San Francisco Bay Area

SFFILM has announced several individuals scheduled to attend and accept honors at the 2018 SFFILM Awards Night (formerly Film Society Awards Night), its annual fundraising celebration honoring achievement in filmmaking craft. This year’s edition of the dinner and awards presentation event—leveraging its new position in the fall after a wildly successful move in 2017—takes place Monday, December 3rd at San Francisco’s Palace of Fine Arts Exhibition Center.

Taking cues from similar awards season events in Palm Springs and Santa Barbara, SFFILM Executive Director Noah Cowan says “More awards isn’t good enough anymore. What people want and need is a unique voice that can actually speak to the qualities of individual contenders.”

Amy Adams will receive the Peter J. Owens Award for Acting, for her performance as Lynne Cheney in Adam McKay’s Vice, opening on Christmas Day from Annapurna Pictures. The Peter J. Owens Award, named after the late local cultural benefactor and longtime SFFILM board member, honors an actor whose work exemplifies brilliance, independence and integrity. Past recipients include Kate Winslet (2017), Ellen Burstyn (2016), Richard Gere (2015), Jeremy Irons (2014), Harrison Ford (2013), Judy Davis (2012), Terence Stamp (2011), Robert Duvall (2010), Robert Redford (2009), Maria Bello (2008), and Robin Williams (2007).

Amy Adams is honored at the Baby2Baby Gala

Amy Adams attended the 2018 Baby2Baby Gala on Saturday (November 10) in Culver City, Calif, where she was honored.

She’s a quiet philanthropist,” said Sam Taylor-Johnson of Amy Adams, who was honored at Baby2Baby Gala with its Giving Tree Award. “But Amy literally does not run from s–t.” Taylor-Johnson shared the humorous story of how she and Adams became friends; she mistakenly called Adams instead of her acupuncturist/herbalist, also named Amy, when she was suffering from an unfortunate stomach bug. Only after sharing the graphic details of her plight did she realize she was talking to Adams. “Our kids go to school together, and I was mortified when I saw her the next day, but she just gave me a big hug and asked if I was feeling better,” Taylor-Johnson said.

Adams went on to share the little-known story that she herself was once in a position where she might have become “at risk” as a young teen, and it was the charity of strangers that set her on the right path and instilled her commitment to give to others:

I don’t talk about it a lot…but when I was a young teen, I was in a position where I might become at risk,” Amy Adams said in her acceptance speech while receiving the Giving Tree Award at the Baby2Baby gala Saturday night.

You never know when an act of generosity will create a moment of great change, because I myself have been a recipient of so much generosity,” the actress said, crediting “a community of individuals” and “the generosity of strangers” with helping her get to where she is today.

In a single night, the star-studded gala raised a record breaking $4.3 million in donations — enough to fund a year’s worth of efforts by the non-profit, run solely by mothers, to provide diapers, clothing and basic necessities to children in need.

Celebrity moms were out in force at Saturday’s event, including former Giving Tree award recipients Jennifer Garner and Jessica Alba, plus Olivia WildeAli WongBusy PhilippsZoe SaldanaJenna DewanJulie BowenZooey DeschanelKelly RowlandOlivia MunnLeslie MannMolly SimsLauren Conrad and Ayesha Curry, Ryan Michelle Bathe and October Gonzalez.

Adams was also one of several celebrity guests to acknowledge the recent fires in Los Angeles.

I would like to take a moment to send my thoughts to those who have been affected by the fires,Adams said in her speech.

Amy was wearing a Peter Pilotto dress and Norman Silverman jewelry.
