This has been a very strange semester—in some good ways and some not-so-good ways—with its fair share of ups & downs, but in spite of all that: lit journal was consistently wonderful. Wonderful people, wonderful, meaningful work, wonderful Dr. Wade. And I’m just so, so grateful for that tonight.

TIME’s 100 most influential people - Amy Adams

The cinematic chameleon Amy and I properly got to know each other in Albuquerque, N.M., while we were shooting Sunshine Cleaning. One night I was driving us home from a Mexican restaurant. I had just told her I was a great driver. Then, as we were leaving, I put the car in drive — rather than reverse — and drove us into a tree. It was a tap, not a cataclysmic crash. But to Amy, stuff like that is heaven. She just burst out laughing. That’s what I love most about Amy — she’s silly and funny and dirty. And she’s incredibly honest. She’s self-admittedly terrible at small talk and hiding her feelings, which I really admire in an industry full of gush. She’s also spooky-good at her job. There’s a certain mystique about Amy that helps the audience go with her on this chameleon of a career, from Enchanted to The Fighter to American Hustle. And I don’t think she’s discovered her full bag of tricks even yet. - Emily Blunt
