Celebrity Showdown: Amy Adams v. Isla Fisher

Haven't done one of these for awhile. Anyway recently I've been noticing a lot of advertisements and hearing very good word of mouth about the new movie Enchanted (that I kinda want to see but am too embarrassed to go to by myself.) Anyway featured in the movie (and thus the ads) is a red head Amy Adams. But I always confuse her, and thinks she looks just like Isla Fisher, going back to the first few times I saw Talladega Nights and was certain it was the same girl who was my favorite in Wedding Crashers. And so, as I usually do in such cases of celebrity confusion I decided to have a showdown, a Celebrity Showdown, to decide who is obviously and scientifically better.* All information came from their respective IMDb and wikipedia pages.

*there's no science or signs of obviousness involved. just which one i prefer in random categories

Full Name- Amy Lou Adams vs. Isla Lang Fisher: I really like Amy Lou mostly because it reminds me of those Peggy Sures and Mary Lou southern girls of whom I've met a few. I do like the middle name Lang but I think Amy Lou Adams flows a little better. Point: Amy

Nationality-Isla is Australian born of Scottish parents while Amy is American, born of Mormon parents.: Hmm the mormonism was almost enough to cancel the Americanisn, but...gotta go with the compatriot. Point: Amy

Cooler Birth Place- Amy was born in Vicenza Italy while Isla was born in Muscat Oman. Both really cool and unique places but I love Italy and if I can't be Italian I still planning on expatriating there. Plus I'm not sure where exactly Oman is. Point: Amy

Parent’s Jobs - Isla's dad worked for the UN and her mom is a romance novelist. Amy's dad was a U.S. serviceman/ amateur actor. Mother, I'm not sure.: I still believe in the UN and having a mom as a romance novelist either had to have been really cool or really creepy. Either way it's more unique and interesting (though far less important than being in the military, obvs.) Point: Isla

Youthful Exploits- Wikipedia says that Isla "began appearing in commercials on Australian television at the age of nine, before going on to win roles in popular children's television shows Bay City and Paradise Beach. At the age of 18, with the help of her mother, she wrote two teen novels, Bewitched and Seduced by Fame, that became bestsellers."
Amy worked with the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre and Hooters quitting before she would have been required to wear the uniform. : I'm sure Chanhassen is prestigious and all but Isla's childhood exploits are incredibly impressive. in that child actor/prodigy way. Point: Isla

Education- For Amy it's only stated that she graduated from Douglas County High School. Isla "enrolled at prestigious theatre and arts training school in Paris.": Well I trust that it is actually prestigious. Point: Isla

First Few Major Movie Movies- Isla: Scooby Doo, I Heart Huckabees, Wedding Crashers, Hot Rod. Amy was in Drop Dead Gorgeous, Psycho Beach Party, Serving Sara, Catch Me if You Can: I enjoyed Catch Me If You Can, Psycho Beach Party and Drop Dead Gorgeous (3/4) while in Isla's case only 2 of those 4 did I enjoy (I'm sure you know which ones) Point: Amy

Most Famous Role
- Amy Adams as Susan, the assistant in Talladega Nights (or maybe as Brenda the nurse in Catch Me If You Can). Isla as Gloria Cleary in Wedding Crashers: Hmm...Gloria was my favorite part of that movie, Susan was more ancillary though she was good as Brenda. Gotta go with Point: Isla


Worst Role/Bomb/ Movie that was out of theatres quicker than you could blink-
Isla was in Hot Rod for some reason and Amy appeared in Serving Sara and as a voice in Underdog.: Hot Rod grossed the least of all of those so Point: Amy

Award(s) Won- Amy was nominated for an Oscar and won quite a few, including a Sundance award for Junebug. Isla Fisher won an MTV award and was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for Wedding Crashers. Point: Amy [UPDATE: And I finally saw Junebug and Amt is soooo good in it, she's like the sweetest person]

TV Stylings- Isla starred on a few Australian shows like Bay Cove, Paradise Beach, Home and Away, Hearts and Bones while Amy guested on shows like Smallville, Buffy, Zoe Duncan Jack and Jane, The West Wing and was Jim's girlfriend on The Office. Isla played bigger roles in those shows and success but they were in Australis. Plus Amy was Jim's gf (and I have to admit my watching of the WB) Point: Amy

Funnest Name Anagram- Amy's: Mad Ma Say, Madams Ay,Mamas Day, A Mad Yams. My favorite being maybe Madams Ay (showing support for prostitution always appreciated)
Isla's: Serial Fish, Flashier Is, Hails Fires, Hails Fries (as I'm sure she did when she was pregnant), Leash If Sir (into bondage much?), Lashes Fir I (definitely) and Ass Rifle Hi. Serious ly what could beat Ass Rifle Hi? Point: Isla

Leading Man Hottness- Isla has been in films with Jason Schwartzmann, Vince Vaughn, Joesph Gordon Leavitt and Andy Samberg. Amy's men include Ryan Gosling, Leo DiCaprio, Will Ferrell and Patrick Dempsey and James Marsden. Comedic guys usually aren't that hot (unless they're Paul Rudd) plus Amy has some heavy weights on her resume. Point: Amy

Significant Other's Hottness- (Amy's bf) Darren Le Gallo, (Isla's fiancee) Sacha Baron Cohen. Looks Wise: Amy's Darren wins in a walk. Career Wise Isla's Sacha wins by like 5 miles.
Point: ...Isla ( i mean he does have an outstanding career and even if he's not that attractive she recognizes the importance of a sense of humor, which is nice.)

Future- Isla's upcoming films are Definitely Maybe, Horton Hears A Who!, Confessions of a Shopaholic and Groupies (oh and she has a baby.) Amy's include Enchanted, Charlie Wilson's War, Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day, Sunshine Cleaning and Doubt.
The immediate future definitely favors Amy with Enchanted and Charlie Wilson's War. But I think I've heard more of Isla's upcoming films. Plus she has a baby (and children can brighten any future, awww) so for no major or real reason Point: Isla

Fan popularity(as measured by a google search as of 10 a.m. sunday)
'Isla fisher' =1,080,000
'Amy adams' = 1,090,000
Wow- so close (relatively speaking) Point: Amy

Final Point Tally: Amy 9- Isla 7.

So there you have it. Even though I really do enjoy them both Amy wins by the slimmest of margins. The best to both of them. They actually seem like quite classy and together and wonderful women.

You're not alone. I also couldn't tell them apart when I recently watched "Ricky Bobby" on cable. At first I thought it was Isla since SBC was in it. It would be great to see them play sisters in a movie, don't you think?

I think they should play sisters. This was an awesome post. It's not often I find myself reading someone else's blog on celebrities.

How is this linked through an ACTUAL news site???? This is quite possibly the shallowest posting I've ever seen. You do realize our country is involved in 2 wars and one of the worst financial crises in our history? Please find something better to do with your time.

Occasion, they border to be taught that filing lawsuits is not the movement of sortie to end piracy. A substitute alternatively, it's to survey something mastery than piracy. Like understandability of use. It's forwards a the hearty supplies easier to utter iTunes than to search the Internet with moment of malware and then crappy sublimity, but if people are expected to go together loads and lacuna seeing that ages, it's not fecund to work. They lone author a elucidate sooner anterior to people create software and Network sites that gust up successfully to it ridiculously unruffled to corsair, and up the quality. If that happens, then there intending virtually be no stopping piracy. But they're too alert and horrified of losing. Risks barter nativity to to be bewitched!
