I'm consistently annoyed by her and I didn't want her to win the Oscar...which is exactly what I said below and on Facebook.

I am interested to see her take on Judy Garland, a character whose desperate need to be liked might be in Hathaway's wheelhouse.

Wow, Flipp...that's not the impression I got at all from you on Facebook. You almost sounded like you couldn't stand Hathaway or her win.

I still think she was the only redeeming part of the movie Valentine's Day.

Interesting tidbit, BJ. Personally, I don't think she's a diva at all. I just find her super-earnestness really annoying. She really is that desperate Rachel Berry theater geek we all knew in high school. That's just who she is. I think she actually happens to be a great actress, and I think that her win for Les Miz is not an embarrassing one at all (I like it when small/short roles win Oscars even if the promotion of this film seemed, at times, to make the whole production about her one moment.) Would I have voted for her out of those five women? No. But I’m not going to hate on her win.

I am about ready for her to take a long break though, which is not something I'd say about Jennifer Lawrence at this point.

My friends who were in the Oscars Les Mis ensemble said that Anne Hathaway was nothing but sincere, genuine, and lovely to people during the entire process of preparing for the show. They said she was completely down-to-earth and visited with everyone during rehearsals, and didn't have a hint of the self-absorption many have seen in her speeches.

I figure, for sake of balance, I should share that, to counter some of the more widespread claims about her diva reputation.

Slightly inaccurate. She was complaining about how he had threatened in the past to send her to the asylum after their first son died and that if he let their eldest son go off to war and he died in the war, she would have to put her in an asylum (suggesting she'd go mad to lose another).

I think more highly of Anne Hathaway than most people here, I think. She's incredibly talented. I still haven't seen Les Miserables, but I've seen the song and...yup, this clip does it justice. Dull speech. The party I was at kept talking about her necklace and dress. They looked fine to me. She's really pushing for that Audrey Hepburn thing, isn't she?

Amy Adams' clip is the best of the lineup easily. This is one of the few clips where she is genuinely speaking her mind in privacy and even more so than the clips for Best Supporting Actor and Best Actor it makes The Master look like the trippy, heated film we were hoping it would be. Based on the clips only, I would think she was robbed, and watching it again I was rooting for an upset. I'm having a difficult time recalling Sally Field's clip. Helen Hunt's clip served as a reminder of how strong and rich her role was and what a mistake it was that she chose to use that accent. Jacki Weaver's clip demonstrated the difficulty of finding a clip that showcases Jacki Weaver in Silver Linings Playbook. She would be my choice of the nominees but man, it's hard to make that case.
