Anne Hathaway has taken awards season by storm for her supporting role as "Fantine" in the musical Les Misérables. Although she recently won a Golden Globes and a SAG Award for her role, Hathaway revealed she may be a bit overwhelmed as she prepares to potentially cash in on her first Oscar this Sunday.
"Oh God!" Hathaway said with a smile at the Costume Designers Guild Awards when asked how she was preparing for this Sunday's Academy Awards, where she is nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
The 30-year-old actress was in attendance at Tuesday's CDGAs to receive the Lacoste Spotlight Award. She said she was a little puzzled at first as to why she was receiving an award, but appreciated it once she discovered its meaning.
"I actually had to go on the website to find out exactly what I was being honored for, this being the Costume Designers Guild Awards," Hathaway said of her initial reaction to the honor. "Apparently, it's about celebrating the spirit of collaboration, which got me really excited because collaborating with the costume department has always been one of my favorite parts of making films."
Joining Hathaway on the red carpet was the man with whom she collaborated on Les Misérables, costume designer Paco Delgado, who was nominated for Excellence in a Period Film at the CDGAs as Les Miz's costume designer. Like Hathaway, he is also nominated for an Oscar this Sunday.
"It's like a dream really, to be nominated for all these very, very special awards," Delgado said. "This [nomination is special] because it's [among]...all the designers, and the Oscars because it's something that is inside your dreams.
"...You thought to be nominated for the Oscars just happened to Jack Nicholson, but actually not. It can happen to you as well, and that's amazing."
Are Hathaway and Delgado on your Oscars ballot?
