She was totally vacant at the Oscars. Her thank-you speech was muted and reserved. She's been more emotional over Teen Choice Awards she's received. Also, she ended up bailing on the Valentino dress she was supposed to wear (according to the Valentino press release) and went with a basic Prada dress.
Anyone else notice her withdrawnness? Marriage problems? Something worse?
She's probably been reading DL.
She has fibromyalgia of the nipples.
So tender to the touch.
I think she misjudged it as much as she did other awards shows. If Anne could just be herself in the moment instead of giving a performance she'd be a lot better off.
I did like her wagging her finger at Captain Von Trapp like they just did some blow together in the bathroom.
She's hungry and out of work. Nothing lined-up but a cartoon voiceover and a bit part in an upcoming Joseph Gordon-Levitt comedy.
Yes r4, you're right, no projects lined up AND the oscar just priced her out of most budgets, or at least that's what her agent will tell her when no further offers come in.
I had already peeked into her window so she'd see my face. Plus she's such a mess that she thought she was being "machure" and properly dignified. And she was just starting her period, as she told that Bald Sick Tit Woman on ABC.
She's in her 30's now. I don't see her lasting much longer. Plus she's ugly. The thought of that nasty face with age on it? Sends shivers. It really does.
Last night she seemed so nervous, I'm glad she didn't pee her pale satin gown!
She should have worn black.
[quote]Her thank-you speech was muted and reserved.
Which it needed to be considering how hyper and long-winded her prior speeches have been. I'm sure someone got ahold of her and reined her in before the Oscars.
I posted here months ago how odd I thought she'd been acting, how thin she was and how vacant she seemed. Everyone is convinced shes got major ego issues but I'm not convinced. I think she's got major insecurity problems and possibly depression and its caused trouble for her.

Psssst, can't do Broadway if your on location doing a movie now can you?
The hate for her on DL is scary. A bunch of hating-ass fags who fear women.
#11, she gets the same treatment we give Liza, Carol Channing, etc. We don't like fakey-gushy ass-kissy.
Tracey Flick gets what she wants, is secretly terrified at the result.
can't stand her - especially when she whispereed "it came true" when she was at the podium
hopefully, she will suffer from the supporting actress oscar curse
She's highly intellectual and extremely witty. A hungry actress who isn't afraid to dish on the internals of the craft. She needs an interviewer along the lines of Cavett. She is wasted on these simple minded talk shows. In short, she excels when truly challenged.
I can totally see her getting the EGOT. She has that kind of overwhelming talent. And it wouldn't surprise me if she branched out in many other areas. We're just seeing one facet of a potentially remarkable career.
There seems to be an overwhelming "not this bitch again" backlash coming at Anne from pretty much everyone these days (not just DL)... she has no one to blame but herself.
A little bit of humble pie and some genuine emotion instead of a rehearsed performance every time she won an award could have made her the world's darling - but most people are sick to death of her.
You have your Oscar, now fuck off seems to be the sentiment.
if shes such a "hungry actress" then she needs to get back to WORK stat. She’s got nothing lined up for 6-7 months which is a lifetime in her business. The next thing is an indie hipster pic that has her husband attached as producer which means it’s a vanity project to keep him busy (and that’s the word around).
I say this as an Anne fan btw. Awards season is over time to end the posing and get back to work. she now belongs to the same peer group as Adams, Weisz and even Watts (yes she does) and trust none of them are resting on laurels. The competition went up a notch for her after winning that Oscar – time to get BUSY.

Even if this twat is intentionally posting a howler of a post, the capacity to write this sentence indicates the yeast infection has traveled to her brain.
I think Jennifer Lawrence stole her thunder.
Can someone explain the lunatic obsession with this woman on Datalounge?
Stephen Colbert trashed her last night. It was HI-larious.
[quote]Can someone explain the lunatic obsession with this woman on Datalounge?
I'd like to know that too, r21. She's not like Ms. Goop or Victoria Jackson so what's with all the vitriol?
Maybe Sally Field slipped her a roofie, OP?
Anne Hathaway just played her own self out, as we say in the South. Her public persona is very transparent.
I think what her problem might wind up being is that she truly might not be able to play a fierce role period. For example, Charlize Theron (sp?) totally changed her career around for the better with "Monster" and I honestly do not think that Anne Hathaway has that kind of role in her at all.
R23, isn't Catwoman a fierce role? I thought she was good but her performance is forgotten.
Good old Anne - damned if she does, damned if she doesn't on DL. Whatever...
Oh, and Sally Field looked like a big, old ball of cheap red fabric.
[quote]She's highly intellectual and extremely witty.
She had a few semesters at Vassar and then went to an "individualized" study program at NYU (like that dumb Olsen troll). She's hardly a natural braniac, nor is she well-educated.
[quote]A hungry actress who isn't afraid to dish on the internals of the craft.
Well she's a hungry actress, that's for sure. I don't know why anyone would care about her "dishing on the internals of the craft" for fuck's sake.
[quote]She needs an interviewer along the lines of Cavett.
No, Dick Cavett would crush her in about two minutes, given that he'd take one minute for a typical introduction prior to making her look like an idiot.
[quote]She is wasted on these simple minded talk shows. In short, she excels when truly challenged.
You are truly delusional. The only reason she seems barely literate is because she is surrounded by people who are even dumber and less educated.
[quote]I can totally see her getting the EGOT.
She might, but that in no way means she should.
[quote]She has that kind of overwhelming talent.
Oh - this is a parody post. Sorry, R15 - my bad.
[quote]And it wouldn't surprise me if she branched out in many other areas. We're just seeing one facet of a potentially remarkable career.
Please, dear lord, let this crazy bitch cut an album or try to direct something.
The best thing about AnnE was that she stood up for her brother. Then she used that, and him being gay, to promote herself and her Oscar chances. She's a phony manipulative cunt.
And she's ugly.
Jennifer Lawrence did indeed steal her thunder. Jennifer looked far more glamorous in her gown (even when she tripped}. She looked the movie star. She was also warmly received by the audience and the press corps fell in love with her after she won. And, Jennifer is only 22, a few years younger than Anne. Anne did not appear to get the same postive reception. It may be that Anne has her award, but not necessarily the affection of her peers. How did she become so polarizing?
Why is she still talking?!
Go away already!
She's simply not camera-ready--exposure is not her friend, and mega-exposure has made (millions of) people have visceral reactions to her. It's sad, in a way--I'm sure she's not *that* bad in real life. I've heard her compared to a theater kid a lot recently, and I see the resemblance. And Lord knows theater kids' personalities are appreciated by a very few, usually their parents and other theater kids.
I thought it was a lunatic obsession confined to DL but then I read the article at link and I think there's widespread disdain for her fierce attempts to seem humble and grateful.
That Prada gown was mad ugly. I just wish that it had been her who had fallen when she went to get her Oscar.
I don't think everyone on DL is like this, but there is a contingent that apparently cannot abide success of any kind in anyone else. So as soon as anyone (and by "anyone," I mean a gay man or a woman) achieves even a modicum of success, suddenly all the knives come out.
These posters are to be pitied, not censured.
Oh don't be so dramatic/ridiculous, R33. Expressing a healthy contempt for these self-absorbed idiots is hardly confined to the DL.
If you're going to note that there are people we hate, you may as well note that there are people we love. With most it's a combination of both as well as a "meh" contingent.
Is there a fucking Hathaway shill on the DL? I wish she'd stop it now, the girl got an Oscar. Mission Accomplished.
"I don't think everyone on DL is like this, but there is a contingent that apparently cannot abide success of any kind in anyone else. "
There's certainly a contingent that cannot abide successful women, or women who take their careers seriously. Some people seem deeply offended that she's been open about wanting an Oscar.
While I don't really understand the venom, the fact is that Hathaway plays extremely likeable girls in the movies, but really does seem self-important and humorless when interviewed. Big deal, she's no Gwynneth.
She looked genuinely frightened during the reading of the names. Russell Crowe was talking about it on Leno last night. She said she was in a tough spot since she had won so much prior to the Oscar and you could feel the enthusiasm and respect for Sally so they were all unsure how she'd do Oscar night.
I think she was going for reserved reverence. She's been in the public eye her whole adult life...she probably doesn't know how to just be herself.
It seems the Jennifer Lawrence fans here are the ones who are very anti-Anne Hathaway, including the one who had to post an essay at R26.
They're trying to mask Lawrence's shortcomings and obnoxious behavior by ridiculing Anne. It started at the Golden Globes. Jennifer has her oscar, so mission accomplished. Stop trying to tear down another actress to make yours look good.
She had such a bad time hosting the awards a year or two ago with the vacant James Franco that she was terrified of being up there again with all eyes on her ....
Yeah R26 sounds very creepy. Can a Restraining Order be far behind?
Dude! The issues people have with Hathaway are obsessive. You don't like her, fine. But it's not such big fucking deal to not like an actor. Get over it.
No r26 is spot-on.
Looking over the Oscars 2014 thread was really fascinating; there are a huge amount of already-filmed, or partially-filmed A-list projects coming up. Each one features major talents. Ann is in NONE of them, which is very strange.
Jennifer Lawrence, for instance, has at least 2 more films ready for release.
She just did too much promotion. It was overkill.
She's just a simple girl from New Jersey and The Paper Mill Playhouse. She just got married, maybe she wants to take a year off to be with her husband. Not every actor is completely career obsessed.

I don't think she's filmed anything since Les Miz and she doesn't have anything upcoming this year either.
She said on the red carpet she goes back to work in September.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
