Amy Adams set to receive Cinema Vanguard Award

12/12/2012 by Nichole Hamilton

Amy Adams may not have nabbed a SAG Award nomination on December 12, but the actress is set to receive another high honor.

The three-time Academy Award nominated actress will receive the Santa Barbara International Film Festival's (SBIFF) Cinema Vanguard Award for her performance in Paul Thomas Anderson's drama film, "The Master," according to SBIFF's website.

"Amy Adams is one of the gutsiest and most gifted actors working today," said SBIFF's executive director, Roger Durling, in a statement on the official website. "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."

The award, which has previously been given to Nicole Kidman, Ryan Gosling, Stanley Tucci and Jean Dujardin, is set to be presented to Adams in a Los Angeles ceremony on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013.

"The Master" is a film about a naval veteran, played by Joaquin Phoenix, who arrives home from war unsettled and uncertain of his future, until he is tantalized by The Cause and its magnetic leader, played by Phillip Seymour Hoffman. The drama sees Adams playing Peggy Dodd, the wife of Seymour Hoffman's character.

The Cinema Vanguard Award aims to recognize actors who have forged their own paths while taking artistic risks and have made a significant and unique contribution to film.

While Adams, 38, was absent from the recent list of SAG Award nominees, her co-star Seymour Hoffman nabbed a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for his work as Lancaster Dodd in the film.

On December 11, a glimpse of the revamped Superman franchise, which features Adams as Lois Lane, was debuted, marking the first full trailer of the upcoming film "Man of Steel."

The trailer hit the web on December 11 and offers scenes of Adams, Henry Cavill in his full Superman suit, and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent.

The trailer kicks off with a bearded Clark Kent (Cavill) in the water, floating, with scenes from a childhood incident cut into it. It seems young Clarks saved his classmates by lifting a bus out of the water.

The film is set to hit theaters on June 14, 2013. Check out the trailer below.
