Only one name as on everyone’s mind as the envelope for Best Supporting Actress was opened on the 85th Annual Academy Awards Sunday, Feb. 24. Most said there was no doubt that Anne Hathaway would walk away with the trophy for her emotional and moving performance as Fantine in “Les Miserables.” It seemed the moment was fated.
Finally as the awards ceremony surged toward the finish and anticipation grew steadily higher, the winner was revealed.
When Anne reached the podium and the applause died down, she actually seemed shaken. She thanked her competitors and then Hugh Jackman before listing all the people involved in her success. Then, in a touching moment, she thanked her husband, saying the best moment in her life was the one when he entered it.
Other nominees in the category for Best Supporting Actress were:
- Amy Adams in "The Master"
- Sally Field in "Lincoln"
- Helen Hunt in "The Sessions"
- Jacki Weaver in "Silver Linings Playbook"
This was not the first nomination for Hathaway. She was previously recognized for her work with a nomination in 2004 for her role as Kym Buchman in 2008’s “Rachael Getting Married.”
Anne started her film career with Disney in 2001’s “The Princess Diaries.” After several family friendly films, she opted to do “Brokeback Mountain” in 2005. Other performances worth catching are “The devil Wears Prada”, “Becoming Jane” and “One Day.”
