Adams: I'm so proud of The Master

Amy Adams picked up the Cinema Vanguard Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival

Amy Adams has revealed her role in Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master marked a high point in her career.

The 38-year-old earned her fourth Oscar nomination in eight years for her part as the steely wife of a cult leader in the movie.

And speaking on the red carpet at an event in her honour at the Santa Barbara film festival, Amy lavished praise on the "visionary" director.

"It's kind of a career high," she explained.

"He's such a visionary and such an artist, and he had such a specific vision for this role and for this film, and I was just proud to be a part of it."

The Muppets star was joined by Anderson as she was awarded the Cinema Vanguard Award at the festival, following in the footsteps of previous recipients Nicole Kidman, Ryan Gosling and Jean Dujardin.

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
