From the opening frames of the trailer for 'The Butler,' it's as if you can hear everyone involved saying one word. That word? Oscar. Academy award-nominated director Lee Daniels leads Oscar winning actor Forest Whitaker in this tour of race relations in America as told through the perspective of a White House butler.
Amy Adams is likely on her way to a fourth Oscar nomination for her intense work in Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master'; actually, it could end up being her first (overdue) win. But if she doesn't bring home a statue that evening, she'll probably get another shot during the 2014 Oscars, as the actress is set to play Janis Joplin for 'Precious' director Lee Daniels. And that simply sounds like gold to us.
