While Anne was Epic as Catwoman in Dark Knight Rises (even Oscar worthy) I must say she was perfection in The Devil Wears Prada. I’ve watched that film many times, and I feel Annes underrated (since Streep took the show) she showed a lot of character development and was incredibly likable. What performance of hers do you enjoy most?August 23, 2012 at 9:28 am #539447
You knew that I’ll comment, don’t you?
My favourite performance by her was in “Love and Other Drugs” followed by “Rachel Getting Married” “The Devil Wears Prada” “Brokeback Mountain” and “Passengers”.
She was just fine in “The Princess Diaries 2.” “One Day” “Ella Enchanted” “Get Smart” and “Valentine’s Day” (although she definitely stole the show here).
I hated her in “Bride Wars” and “Alice in Wonderland”. These were super awful, horribly written roles for a talented lady like her.
I haven’t seen “The Dark Knight Rises” and I can’t wait to see “Les Misérables”.August 23, 2012 at 2:11 pm #539448
^Lol yes you seem like you have a great appreciation for her.
While it was nothing Oscar worthy or anything, I did think she was funny in Alice in Wonderland. I have yet to see Rachel Getting Married, although I heard its a very weird/boring film.
I can’t believe you haven’t seen Dark Knight Rises! While it isn’t as good as the latter, Anne is fantastic as Catwoman (Although she wears an ugly costume.) Cotillard is in it, and Bale is actually very hot in the film. So its a must see! Whenever you have the free time, go and see it!August 23, 2012 at 2:48 pm #539449
You should be careful with something. Don’t pay attention for other people opinion about movies EVER. We are all different. Because they say it was boring, it doesn’t mean that it will be boring for you. For me, The Hurt Locker is one of the worst Oscar movie EVER MADE, but people seem to love it… Different cultures, taste and so on…
Dark Knight Rises Watch: Yeah I”ll do it for sure. I heard positive reviews about Hathaway all around me, but as I said I won’t belive them until I’ll make sure about that opinions are true.
Btw, It’s her time to win an Oscar. Seriously.August 23, 2012 at 3:34 pm #539450
I just looked at her filmography and she really does have a solid resume. The only truly bad film she’s done is Bride Wars (seriously, WTF was she thinking?), but she wasn’t necessarily bad in it. I just don’t understand what got her to sign the dotted line on that one.
I honestly feel she should have won for Rachel Getting Married. Of the five performances – going solely by the performance – she gave the best. But even I will acknowledge Kate Winslet was extremely overdue; I just would have been more behind her win had it been for Revolutionary Road and not The Reader. Oh well.
The interesting thing to come out of that was maybe it was too soon for Hathaway to be branded “Oscar winner”? She scared me following up Rachel Getting Married with Bride Wars (actually it was the little-seen and little-acknowledged but still watchable Passengers; Bride Wars was her post-Oscar nom mainstream role), but other than that she’s made good choices and shown her nomination wasn’t a fluke.
Some are begrudging her in Alice in Wonderland. I can’t figure out if she is being hated on or the entire film itself; regardless, that would be an easy “yes” for any actor – Tim Burton/Alice in Wonderland comes to life/Johnny Depp – as was One Day. A lot didn’t enjoy that one either, but I did. And I certainly wouldn’t have turned down a film from the director of An Education. (Side-topic: Carey Mulligan is in the same boat as Hathaway; worthy of a win for her first nom but no due factor at all, yet has been consistently great in choices and performances since the nom).
The two ladies that keep popping in my head this year are Anne Hathaway and Amy Adams. Hathaway’s category-placement is as shaky as, ironically, Kate Winslet’s in The Reader. Will the Academy see her as Lead or Supporting in Les Miz? Either way, I think she just may have this if it’s the hit it appears it’s going to be. If she is Supporting, she better stay in Supporting. Viola Davis was thought of as the Lead in The Help when she was co-Supporting and it cost her the Oscar.August 23, 2012 at 6:05 pm #539451
I voted for The princess Diaries because i grew up with that movie. Evey single time it is on TV i watch it. Last time it was on TV was not even 2 weeks ago! lol but seriously it’s just one of those movies that stay with you 4 ever. 🙂August 23, 2012 at 6:57 pm #539452
Will the Academy see her as Lead or Supporting in Les Miz?
SPOILER: She’ll die in the first half of the movie. Will come back in flashbacks…SO SHE’S DEFINITELY SUPP!August 23, 2012 at 9:14 pm #539453
Rachel Getting Married. I was so happy to see her reveal her dramatic skill here. And the rest of the cast in that film are all really good. If she had won that year, she would have been a worthy winner.August 23, 2012 at 9:34 pm #539454
Rachel Getting Married was a mess when it came to technical stuff: it really didn’t feel like Demme had control of what was going on and the cinematography was a mess. But the writing and acting was spectacular. Jenny Lumet’s screenplay could have rivaled Dustin Lance Black’s script to Milk had she been nominated. And Rosemarie DeWitt could have taken down Penelope Cruz in supporting actress had she been nominated, especially because that category was in turmoil that year due to the exporting of Kate Winslet to the lead category.
It’s too bad that Anne Hathaway had to go up against such formidable competition. She was rivaling the overdue Kate Winslet, that year’s SAG winner Meryl Streep, Clint Eastwood-backed Angelina Jolie and passion-driven Melissa Leo. I truly think that if the academy released the placings of every actress in the category, Hathaway would be at #2 or 3. Had the movie been released a year earlier, she would have knocked Laura Linney right out of the category and would have given Cotillard the fight of her life, it would have been a photo-finish.
However, her nomination for this film is a great starting point for the awards season she may have coming towards her for Les Mis.August 23, 2012 at 9:41 pm #539455
I cant disagree with some of your points. I feel RGM has some problems, particularly the pacing. I’m more forgiving than you seem to be however. The screenplay was just ok for me. But the cast gave that fairly predictable writing the impact that it has. It’s great also in that Hathaway’s character appears to be the one with the major issues. And she does have them, understandably. But that entire family is messed up; just in quieter ways.
All in all that film was worth seeing. (hint hint Miss Frost)August 24, 2012 at 2:57 am #539456
I pretty enjoyed “Rachel Getting Married” except for that freaking camera work. My eyes were like “giving up”.

Thanks for the recommendation, I’ll definitely give RGM a shot and go check it out today.August 24, 2012 at 11:32 am #539458
Er, none of the above?August 25, 2012 at 12:12 pm #539459
Er, none of the above?
Why do you say that?August 25, 2012 at 3:21 pm #539460

For me, it was a little bit of both. I am a huge Depp fan and usually love Burton, but this is one collaboration of theirs that I could take or leave, and I probably would’ve favored leaving it, since so many people seem to be burnt out by the pairing by now. Even so, *someone* must’ve liked it since it made a billion bucks 🙂 But I also felt that Hathaway’s performance was the worst part of the film. I absolutely HATED her character. I put most of the blame on Burton, for trying to turn her into some vaguely airheaded bore; she may have done the best she could with what she was given.
I haven’t seen Dark Knight Rises yet, but I love her in most of the other films I’ve seen. For this poll I was between Rachel Getting Married and The Devil Wears Prada, and I settled on the latter.
