They Spelled Anne Hathaway's Name Wrong at the Critics' Choice Awards, and She Called Them Out in Her Acceptance Speech


Last night in Los Angeles, Anne Hathaway won the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Fantine in the big screen adaptation of Les Mis. And rightfully so! She killed that role dead-er than a 19th century French factory worker-turned-prostitute and deserves all the accolades she can get. One thing about those accolades, however — when recognizing someone for their work, it’s kind of important that you get their name right, something that the Critics’ Choice Awards failed to do when they spelled her name as “Ann” rather than “Anne.” Hathaway was quick to correct, however, beginning her acceptance speech with “This is a bittersweet moment for me because I have this award, but you spelled my name wrong. “It is with an ‘e.’ It’s probably in bad taste for me to point that out here.”

As a fellow someone who constantly gets an e dropped from her name, all I can say is that I feel you, girl.
