There is no love lost for Anne Hathaway. But after her performance in LES MISERABLES, I will say that she deserves an Oscar. She kinda hit that one out of the park. The movie hits theaters right before Christmas, and we were thankful to see an advanced screening.
AWARDSLINE: Did you have to audition? And was it the role of Fantine that you always had your eye on?
ANNE HATHAWAY: I did have to audition. There was some resistance to the idea of me because of my age—I was in between the ideal ages of the main female characters and was told I was too old for Éponine and Cosette, but probably too young for Fantine. I agreed I was too old for Éponine and Cosette, but I got fiery and determined and pushed my way into an audition for Fantine. I had a three-hour audition but then had to wait a month until I heard anything.
Best of luck Anne, but we have faith that you will be winning big, hell, cleaning up during Awards season this year.
