American Hustle is having quite an evening, first an award for Jennifer Lawrence and now a prize for Amy Adams (had Streep won it would have been her 9th win, even so it's her 28th nomination). This back-to-back acting accolade for American Hustle predicts some big things for the movie later on in the evening. Best Picture, anyone?
The other nominees in the category were:
Julie Delpy, Before Midnight
Greta Gerwig, Frances Ha
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Enough Said
Meryl Streep, August: Osage County
