The actress was included on a list of 'bad actors' published online on Thursday — and the internet wasn't having it.
An article entitled "Actors Who Are Bad at Acting" — which was really just a list of 26 names — published by Jezebel, called out a couple of ham favorites, but also included some genuine Oscar-winning thesps.
"This is a list of actors who are not really good actors, contrary to what you might think," claimed author, Culture Editor Clover Hope. "These are people who make you stop and wonder, Hm, are they good?"
She then named: Brie Larson, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael B. Jordan, Nicholas Cage, John Travolta, Kristen Stewart, Daniel Radcliffe, Adam Sandler, Gwyneth Paltrow, Vin Diesel, Chloë Grace Moretz, Emma Watson, Anthony Mackie, Jessica Alba, Armie Hammer, Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Costner, Bradley Cooper, Scarlett Johansson, Ashton Kutcher, Chris Evans, Ansel Elgort, Gal Gadot, Angelina Jolie, and Sienna Miller.
But only one name trended on Twitter.
"Anyone who thinks Amy Adams can't act is insane," one wrote. "Leave Amy Adams alone. She's phenomenal in everything she does," warned another.
"Someone really thought they were doing something by putting Amy Adams on this list...the clownery," another fan tweeted.
"If you believe Amy Adams is bad at acting, you are just trolling because no one will agree with you," agreed one more.
Adams' peers and most awards bodies seem to agree; she has racked up 131 acting nominations and 37 wins in her career so far, including six Oscar noms for "Junebug", "Doubt", "The Fighter", "The Master", "American Hustle" and "Vice", and back-to-back Best Actress Golden Globes in 2013 and 2014 for "American Hustle" and "Big Eyes".

Leave Amy Adams alone. She's phenomenal in everything she does.
This would be a trollish article either way but like...I was expecting more than a list of names. At least put in the effort and try to convince me Amy Adams is bad at acting, come on! https://t.co/PfUOY7gKyP
Just read the list and was infuriated by the laziness (a bulleted list...?) and arbitrary nature of it, but especially because no one could have done what Amy Adams did in Enchanted. Thank you for this brilliant, thoughtful response. pic.twitter.com/M1oDC43XuF
