Anne Hathaway's portrayal of the tragic prostitute Fantine in "Les Miserables" has bagged the actress a Golden Globe and the SAG award, but there's still the big one to go - The Oscars. So it's lucky she has on-line support from a new viral video parodying her solo number "I Dreamed a Dream" and making it into a sales pitch about why she should win an Academy Award.
Director Alberto Belli and Hathaway doppelganger Emma Fitzpatrick are the pair behind the hit video.
Alberto Belli: "Since she was in the media and getting all the attention, I decided on this funny idea to combine the two and create this funny video for people to laugh."
Emma Fitzpatrick: "She did a wonderful job. I can't imagine how hard it would have been to do that song some 20 takes in a row not only vocally but emotionally as well. She did awesome."
We'll find out on February 24th if Anne's Oscar dreams do come true.
