Director Tom Hooper said he was thrilled for both Jackman and Hathaway.
I'm thrilled to see Hugh being Bafta-nominated. He really carried this picture from first round to the last, and gives it an incredible emotional through line.I was staggered when I worked with him, the understanding of the human condition that he brought particularly to the older years of Jean Valjean. He's only in his early 40s and doesn't have the life experience of this character and when he gets to the end of the film and his declining days, his understanding of that moment is so powerful. I'm really pleased to see him honoured.
With Anne, this song she sings - I Dreamed A Dream - continues to knock people out. People keep being amazed by her performance and having such strong emotional reactions to it. She's so gifted and people weep for the character.I am definitely disappointed but I am consoled that Steven Spielberg woke up to the same news this morning. I feel like I'm in good company if I'm with him.
