MILLBURN, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — One New Jersey town is beaming with pride for its hometown girl Anne Hathaway following her Oscar win Sunday night.
Hathaway was the front-runner for the best supporting actress Oscar, but that didn’t take away from the sweetness of winning.
“It came true,” a radiant Hathaway said after accepting the trophy for her performance as doomed prostitute Fantine in “Les Miserables.”
Hathaway was part of the star-filled cast in the big-screen adaptation of “Les Miserables,” the Broadway hit based on Victor Hugo’s sprawling novel of revolution and romance in 1800s France. One of her chief competitors was two-time Oscar winner Sally Field, nominated this year for “Lincoln.”
