Two Night Event Begins With Adams on Wednesday, February 19 at 8pm ET/PT Followed by McConaughey on Thursday, February 20 at 8pm ET/PT

NEW YORK - January 30, 2014 - Bravo Media has Oscar fever on the Emmy Award-Winning series "Inside the Actors Studio" as host James Lipton welcomes two critically-acclaimed actors, Amy Adams and Matthew McConaughey, on two back-to-back nights. Fresh off of her first Golden Globe win, "Best Actress" Oscar nominee Amy Adams sits down first on Wednesday, February 19 at 8pm ET/PT, then fellow Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominee Matthew McConaughey follows on Thursday, February 20 at 8pm ET/PT.

"The period leading up to the Oscars is always our busiest time of the year, possibly because so many of our guests have wound up holding the treasured trophy," says James Lipton. "This year is no exception. Bruce Dern's 'Inside the Actors Studio' episode has recently aired. Amy Adams' episode and Matthew McConaughey's episode will air on consecutive nights, February 19th and 20th.Three great new episodes and three great Oscar candidates. Our Actors Studio Drama School students will be cheering loudly and proudly on Oscar night."

After making her mark in the industry with memorable appearances in films such as "Junebug," "Enchanted," "Doubt," and "The Fighter," Amy Adams discusses her multifaceted career leading up to her standout performance in Columbia Pictures' "American Hustle." Her lead role as a con-artist in the Academy Award nominated film earned Adam's her first Golden Globe win and fifth Academy Award Nomination. Adams has been nominated for five Golden Globe Awards and six Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Well-known for his many leading roles in hit romantic comedies including "The Wedding Planner," "How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days" and "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past," Matthew McConaughey reveals his unorthodox break into acting with his first major role in "Dazed & Confused" and which film made him a household name in one weekend. Viewers will also learn if his wife, Camila Alves, believes McConaughey upholds his charm off-camera and how he came to the career-defining decision to set out for riskier and more serious characters, including his debut television role in HBO's new series "True Detective." In addition, the actor discloses the rigorous homework he conducted for his portrayal of AIDS victim Ron Woodruff in the Focus Features film, "Dallas Buyers Club," for which McConaughey won a Golden Globe Award and Academy Award Nomination for "Best Actor."
