Anne Hathaway Wins First Oscar; “Les Miserables” Standout is Best Supporting Actress
Though neither Anne Hathaway nor James Franco impressed in their joint Oscars hosting gig a few years ago, most felt the larger blame lied with Franco. Since then, Hathaway has proven a game player in the Hollywood scene, and she finally has an Oscar of her own.
Hathaway predictably won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for “Les Miserables,” proving that the mild surprise of Christoph Waltz’s win for Supporting Actor was not a guarantee of a night’s worth of shockers.
Hathaway beat out Sally Field, Helen Hunt, Jacki Weaver and Amy Adams.
