Dearly beloved, we now have gathered right here at present to have fun the incomparable brilliance of Anne Jacqueline Hathaway (or Annie to shut pals).
Not solely is she an Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning actor, however she is a campy, accent-loving queen AND she was my “crush” in highschool after I was nonetheless within the closet. However extra vital than me having an Anne Hathaway-themed party (to show my straightness, in fact), is that she is without doubt one of the most versatile performers gracing our screens at present.
Certain, she will be able to weep in a high-end status drama, however she’s additionally serving gut-busting comedy in rom-coms, spandex-assassin realness in motion movies, full-range, heaven-sent, sonic pipes in musicals, and award-winning, disembodied voice humor in animated motion pictures. Anne refuses to be boxed in, and she or he’s not afraid to get actually bizarre (I’m you, Serenity). She has hosted the Oscars. She has hosted SNL. She has licked a rhinestoned sledge hammer. And if she doesn’t EGOT, I’ll eat that flip-flop from The Princess Diaries seashore shack scene. Significantly, Broadway producers, get this girl on stage STAT.
In honor of Anne Hathaway’s illustrious profession and the arrival of the WeWork-based miniseries WeCrashed, I’ve determined to rank her performances on each movie and TV.
Cameos and voiceover roles are included, however her appearances in documentaries and as herself are usually not. Additionally, it needs to be famous that this rating is predicated solely on her performances and NOT the films as an entire. So sadly, Meryl Streep’s iconic cerulean speech in The Satan Wears Prada doesn’t issue into this rating, however fortunately neither does Russell Crowe’s warbling in Les Misérables.
So let’s not transfer at a glacial tempo, and start the countdown.
