A tearful Anne Hathaway just took home the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at the 2013 Oscars, but did she deserve it for her approximately 40-minute performance as Fantine in Les Misérables?
The 30-year-old actress really committed to her role as emaciated 17th century prostitute Fantine chopped off her hair and dropped an astounding 25 pounds. And if you didn't know, her raw rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" was shot in one, perfect take. (Fun fact: Anne's mom played Fantine on stage years ago.)
For the Oscar, Anne was up against acting juggernauts Sally Field (Lincoln), Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook), Helen Hunt (The Sessions), and Amy Adams (The Master). In a touching acceptance speech, Anne paid tribute to her husband Adam Shulman and closed with, "Here's hoping that someday in the not-too-distant future, the misfortunes of Fantine will only be found in stories and nevermore in real life."
Some might say this was the most predictable win of the 2013 Oscars. Do you think Anne deserved to win the Oscar for Best Support Actress? Sound off below!
