Quotables: Anne Hathaway Talks About Her Oscar Buzz

“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.”

- Anne Hathaway talks about how everyone thinks she’s going to get an Oscar, or at least an Oscar nomination, for her work as Fantine in Les Miserables.

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.

  • People who go through a lot of physical changes for their role generally get nominated. Since she chopped off her hair and starved herself, I’d say she has a lock on it.

  • I wouldn’t say she’s bragging when she says it would be embarrassing if she doesn’t get nominated; if everyone’s saying she should/will get nominated and then she doesn’t, that IS embarrassing.

  • must have skimmed the title to fast. i assumed it was leading to A.H.talks about her no knicker incident

    and onto her quote incl. “it’s lovely that people are talking about it”
    i wazzzzz :S

  • I get it. While I was studying hard for my MA and taking the final exams, everyone was saying “oh you’ll pass, no problem,” and I was horrified that I wouldn’t, which would be excruciatingly embarrassing since everyone I knew, even people I didn’t like that much, was aware that I was testing for it.
