Anne Hathaway's "Les Miserables" performance as the abject, tuberculosis-ridden French prostitute Fantine was so obviously an Oscars audition tape that you can practically hear her singing "I Dreamed of Oscar" during her big musical close-up. And yet after months of tireless campaigning about chopping off her hair and starving herself for the role, the 30-year-old actress has picked up every other award with mock-surprise that's positively Taylor Swift-ian. So it's a pleasure seeing actress Emma Fitzpatrick, in the "For Your Consideration" video spoof below, beg for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar we all know Hathaway so desperately wants.
