No Oscar? Really? Film Series
The list of actors who’ve won Academy Awards is long and distinguished. So is the roll of those who haven’t. Continuing a series of films this month that earned nominations – but not statuettes – for notably Oscar-less stars: Amy Adams is both partner and mistress to conman Christian Bale in director David O. Russell’s fictional take on the Abscam scandal of the 1970s. (Rated R)
