“It’s hugely flattering but nothing is real yet, so it’s lovely that people are talking about it. So I’m of two minds, which is one, ‘Oh my gosh could you imagine if it came true?’ and two, ‘Can you imagine how embarrassing it’ll be if it doesn’t happen, if I don’t get nominated?’ So I’m just trying to keep my feet on the ground at the moment.”
I don’t know, you guys. While there’s certainly been a whole lot of talk about Anne’s Oscar-worthy performance, and while I usually love this lady, something about this rubs me the wrong way. Is that wrong? It’s the whole part about how embarrassing it will be if she doesn’t get nominated, it just seems kind of braggy to me. I realize she said the other stuff too, about “what if it came true,” but it still makes me feel funny.
Also, is there any set criteria for Best Supporting Actress nomination? Because while she’s important to the story and while she has one of the most famous songs from the show, Fantine really isn’t that big of a character. Just wondering. Ugh.
