Adams began her career on stage performing in dinner theater and went on to make her feature film debut in Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999). After moving to Los Angeles, she made several appearances on television and in B-movies, before starring in Steven Spielberg’s 2002 biopic Catch Me If You Can. Adams’s breakthrough role came in the 2005 independent film Junebug, in which her portrayal of a young pregnant woman earned her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress nomination. In 2007, she starred as a princess in the commercially successful Disney musical film Enchanted.

Adams received three more Oscar nominations for her supporting roles in Doubt (2008), The Fighter (2010), and The Master (2012). She played reporter Lois Lane in the 2013 superhero film Man of Steel and a troubled con artist in David O. Russell’s film American Hustle; for the latter, she won a Golden Globe Award and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress. She won a second consecutive Golden Globe Award for portraying artist Margaret Keane in the comedy-drama Big Eyes (2014).
