Best Supporting Actress, which has no minimum screentime requirement. There's no such thing as Best female performance at the Oscars.
Exactly. Judi Dench and Beatrice Straight have both won for shorter roles, and Judi Dench's case a less important role. I don't with screentime matters, it's what the actor does with it, if anything it's even more impressive to make such a big impact in such little time.

What? Best female performance? But shes barely in the film lol
Anthony Hopkins had around 16 mins of screen time in Silence of the Lambs, yet won best actor that year and anyone who would deny that he gave a memorable performance would be deluded.

Screen time does not equate to a good performance.

After Re-watching Anne's GG speech I don't even think her gushing over Sally Field was actually all that genuine or touching. She actually brought up The Flying Nun which is known to be a sore subject and a source of embarrassment for Sally Field. It was almost like she was smiling through gritted teeth when Anne brought that up.

I just find her annoying. Again, each to their own.

I don't hate her - she is actually excellent when she is kinda parodying some of her earlier performances such as in Alice in Wonderland as the white queen. She is an excellent comedy actor. Talking of which if Anne Hathaway was doing a parody (a la Saturday Night Live) of OTT musicals she would sobs herself silly and croak with emotion on every line.So was Les Miserables parody? My point is this year is not her best ... in the Batman film only the hero and the villain really get a chance to shine. Her performance was fine but not outstanding much like Joseph Gordon-Levitt's . As for les mis it is a marmite drizzled with tears thing.
You may enjoy watching her 'Funny or Die' skit that she did this Christmas with Samuel L Jackson:

What you talking about, course it does. If he won for best supporting actor then fair enough but to win best leading actor for a role which lasts 15 mins is shocking.

Screen time does equate to it hence the different categories, imo

But he is the leading actor.

He gives a film-dominating performance in 16 minutes. Well worthy of recognition.

Very true

The film is his story, but told through Jodie Foster's characters eyes.

Anne's character is a vital and important character in Les Miserables, but the story doesn't resolve around her. Therefore she isn't the lead.

It might do in your opinion, but it doesn't in the rules of the Academy Awards, which is the key.

Do not agree with the comments about Anne's GG speech, there wasn't anything wrong with it. I think people need to give her a break. It's crazy how many people dislike her for no reason really.

No, it really isn't. I don't know how anyone could watch it and come away thinking this.

I think, and hope, she will. She is fast becoming the stand out actress of her generation. Not bad for a Disney Princess.
Indeed - In my Top 3 favourite actresses of all time - in no particular order:

- Anne Hathaway
- Sandra Bullock
- Judy Garland

Just wait till Anne plays Judy Garland in the movie about her life - I can't wait and just hope they hurry up and begin production soon!!

Me too - It was back in 2010 I think when they started talking about it and Anne had been signed up - then it was put back because they wanted to get the story just right and there was a lot of information they had to go through and it is a delicate subject etc etc .. however few years later and still no word - it's apparently "in development" on the IMDB page - for possible 2014 release ..

EDIT: I also read that the Weinstein Co. are having financial difficulties and it's most likely this project will never happy I really hope that's not the case and it gets picked up by someone else!!

I cannot wait to see Anne portray Judy Garland either. It could be something truly amazing. Visually I think it'll be easy to buy but I'm sure Anne will pull off the amazing Judy.

Ah it's not actually sounding like it will go ahead...but *fingers crossed* eh.

I think she'd be an amazing Judy, but I think she could also portray Liza!

Definitely - after she got her haircut - I did think she looked quite a bit like Liza...

I really hope this gets picked up by one of the studios because it would be a real shame if it weren't made! I've read the book Get Happy, and it's a real eye opener, but a very good insight into the life behind the music and drama .... my only one reservation about Anne playing Judy - She is way taller than Judy was - I mean Anne is I think pushing on 6ft, Judy was under 5ft tall! lol

Wonder if Anne will mention Susan Boyle in her acceptance speech?
Hopefully, and give a Subo Nod as well.

Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt. PERFECTION.

I think I'll have to read it! Also I think people could look past the height issue, but then it's Judy Garland, people will want whoever is cast to be close to perfect.

but never underestimate the power of the emperorís new clothes!
Is that the story where a bloke walks down the street in a perfectly visible outfit that a lot of people like. But those who aren't particularly taken with his sartorial choice jump up and down getting hysterical and start yelling "he's naked he's naked...."?
