Anne Hathaway Gets a Delicious Oscar Parody in YouTube Hit (Video)


It couldn’t happen to a nicer person. Anne Hathaway, who’s taken a lot of ribbing this Oscar season, is actually a doll. Now she’s getting the ultimate hilarious send up of her role in “Les Miserables” singing “I Dreamed a Dream.” A YouTube parody has already been seen over 500,000 times and counting. It’s a must see from beginning to end, and the end–in which Anne’s name is spelled wrong– a reference to her Critics’ Choice Awards speech– is the cherry on top. Anne can take a joke, and I’m sure the Academy will too. I expect to see this played in the Dolby Theater during a commercial if (when) Hathaway wins Best Supporting Actress on February 24th. The singer is Emma Fitzpatrick, and the director is USC film student Alberto Belli.
