Anne Hathaway is the recipient of this year's Academy Award for 'Actress in a Supporting Roles' for her performance as 'Fantine' in Tom Hooper's adaptation of LES MISERABLES.

Hathaway, who was also won a Golden Globe and SAG award for the role, beat out Amy Adams in THE MASTER, Sally Field in LINCOLN, Helen Hunt in THE SESSIONS, and Jacki Weaver in SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK.

Her other notable credits include 'Batman: The Dark Night Rises' 'The Princess Diaries,' 'Brokeback Mountain,' 'The Devil Wears Prada,' 'Becoming Jane,' 'Alice in Wonderland,' and 'Rachel Getting Married,' for which she was nominated for an Academy Award.

LES MISERABLES is nominated for eight Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor (Hugh Jackman), Best Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway) and Best Song ("Suddenly"). It won the Golden Globe for Best Picture (Musical Or Comedy).

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, LES MISERABLES tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, Sacrifice and redemption-a timeless Testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, Hunted for Decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
