Oscars 2013: Anne Hathaway Picks Up Best Supporting Actress For Her Turn as Fantine in Les Miserables

And the award for Best Supporting Actress goes to Anne Hathaway for Les Miserables! This is Hathaway’s first Oscar having been previously as Best Actress of 2008 for her performance in "Rachel Getting Married."

Picking up her award, and as is customary, Hathaway's emotions seemed irrepressible. "It came true," she said, opening her speech, before going on to thank her cast, but everyone does that. She did reserve special praise for Hugh Jackman though, saying, "Hugh, you're the best," she said. We think she did a fantastic job of remembering everybody's names! "Please say I just said everyone," she pleaded. Conragts Anne!

In winning this award, Hathaway beat out Amy Adams, Sally Field, Helen Hunt, Jacki Weaver. Field was easily her closest competition for her role in Lincoln, but the epic political biopic is set for plenty awards as the nights moves on, as it’s favourite for Best Picture, and Daniel Day Lewis will surely pick up Best Actor for his turn as the 16th President of The United States.

Hathaway recently talked about the life of an Actor, and to be honest, it doesn’t sound all that bad! “I had a film lined up that we'd taken a breath on, so I'm unemployed. It's such a funny experience to sort of be here and be in some ways at the pinnacle of what you can achieve as an actor, but also know that you don't have a job. That is the life of an actor!” (via Daily Mail)
