Camille, Sharp Objects
"I identified with Camille Preaker while reading Sharp Objects years ago, and was incredibly impressed with how Amy Adams brought her to life in the HBO adaptation. Camille is a woman forced to revisit her past while working to solve a crime in her tiny hometown, and Adams's performance is almost scary in its complexity. I especially love how easily Camille gets under people's skin; she's a bit of an enigma (who quite literally shrouds herself in mystery), and her sheer presence in Wind Gap was enough to have the locals shook. She has demons, and it freaks people out; she's a trauma survivor, and it makes people uncomfortable; not many can handle Camille, because Camille can barely handle herself. I'm always going to be drawn to the flawed women, the broken women, the women who are just complicated and crazy enough to make me feel a little less-so. Camille Preaker is one of those women, and it was great to see her come off the page this year."
