Amy Adams and Michelle Williams got their first Oscar noms together, and now they could do the same at the Emmys

Michelle Williams (“Fosse/Verdon”) and Amy Adams (“Sharp Objects”) are both Emmy contenders this year for Best Movie/Limited Series Actress. Despite their long careers on the big and small screens, this would be the first Emmy nomination for both. But this wouldn’t be the only time they celebrate a career-first together. They also received their very first Oscar nominations in the same category.

In 2005 Williams co-starred in “Brokeback Mountain” as Alma, whose husband (Heath Ledger) was secretly in love with another man (Jake Gyllenhaal). The same year Adams gave a breakthrough performance in “Junebug” as Ashley, a pregnant North Carolina woman with an unfailingly optimistic attitude. Both women earned Oscar nominations for Best Supporting Actress for their roles, though they ended up losing to Rachel Weisz (“The Constant Gardener”).
