Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Last night Anne Hathaway won a Critics Choice Award for her role as Fantine in 'Les Miserables,' but because winning isn't everything, the actress' big moment was dampened by the fact that her name was misspelled on the screen that announced her nomination.

"This is a bittersweet moment for me because I have this award, but you spelled my name wrong." Anne's speech began. "It is with an "e." It's probably in bad taste for me to point that out here, but um... I'm sorry I don't mean to be gauche."

Though the public mostly laughed at Hathaway's remark, it's hard to tell if she was actually offended or trying to be funny. Either way, and though if intended as a joke it was mildly entertaining, it was Ben Affleck who stole the show with his acceptance speech pun in which he 'thanked the Academy' for his award.
