Anne Hathaway cried and her husband screamed when they discovered she was nominated for an Oscar.

The 30-year-old actress received a Best Supporting Actress nomination for playing Fantine in 'Les Miserables' and she and Adam Shulman couldn't contain their joy when they heard the news.

She told E! News: ''I was just in bed and I was watching TV and they said my name.

''He was screaming louder than me! I think we might have scared the dog.

''I cried a lot and he hugged me and we kissed. It was really sweet.''

Anne - who married Adam in September after fours years of dating - previously claimed she knew that if their first date went well, she would marry him.

She said: ''I'm married to a nice guy, he's a producer. We met through friends.

''It was pretty instant, as soon as I met him I was like what is the deal with that guy, but someone told me had a girlfriend so I backed off. Then six weeks later I found out that he didn't have a girlfriend so I asked him to come to New Orleans with me. I had a spare ticket.

''I said if it goes badly we'll probably never see each other again, and if it goes well we'll probably get married.''
