If Amy Adams gets an Oscar nomination for "Arrival", and then proceeds to lose, she will tie Glenn Close for most nominations without a win from any living actor.

Amy Adams has been nominated 5 times ("Junebug," "Doubt," "The Fighter," "The Master," "American Hustle"). It's been a tremendous career for an actress that, in my books, hasn't even reached her artistic peak yet. With heavy buzz for "Arrival," she will more than likely get a nomination for Best Actress. However, so far most Oscar predictors are saying that this may be Emma Stone's year for "La La Land," there's also "Jackie" and Natalie Portman, whom many people believe could upset Stone. This puts Amy Adams at six nominations, sharing the record with Glenn Close ("The World According to Garp," "The Big Chill," "The Natural," "Fatal Attraction," "Dangerous Liaisons," oh the 80s, and "Albert Nobbs"). Just to compare the magnitude of this situation, Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated 4 times before winning Best Actor with his fifth nomination for "The Revenant." Most people were clamoring for him to win that beloved Oscar, where's all the love for Adams?
