Amy Adams Says Award Season Can Be 'Overwhelming'

Amy Adams is “grateful” that she’s been nominated for an Oscar five times, but she admits that it’s stressful going through the whole process again and again.

“It’s easy to get caught up, not in the nominations — not in the reward-award aspect of it, but just in everything that it becomes,” the 42-year-old actress told the The New York Times.

“The red carpets and the overimportance. It’s easy for that to sort of take center stage in that moment, especially when you’re a young woman,” Amy added. “For me, it definitely at times is overwhelming, that whole process. But I’m always grateful because the nomination for Junebug and campaigning launched what is my current career. So I can’t poo-poo the process.”
