Hollywood Outbreak is offering a Blu-ray giveaway for Les Miserables, the acclaimed musical headlined by Hugh Jackman, Oscar winning actress Anne Hathaway, and Amanda Seyfried. The picture is directed by Tom Hooper, the filmmaker behind The King’s Speech and The Damned United.
To enter our Les Miserables Blu-ray giveaway, please do as follows:
Anne Hathaway won her first Oscar last night for her scene stealing performance as Fantine in Les Miserables, and the highlight of her speech came from acknowledging her husband, Adam Shulman. She talked about her husband last night during the backstage press interviews at the Academy Awards.
“He’s just made everything better, and clearer, and more real” said Hathaway, who was previously nominated for her work in Rachel Getting Married. “And that’s all I’m going to say, thank you!”
Hathaway was also asked by a reporter if she would ever relinquish her underdog status now that she’s an Oscar winner. Although the actress was still on cloud nine, she says being an underdog is natural for her.
“You’re always looking for the next job, you’re always thinking at the end of one, it doesn’t matter what’s happened before, (you think) no one’s ever going to hire me again,” added Hathaway.”

Awards season is upon us, and one of the acting frontrunners is Anne Hathaway, who gives an inspired performance as doomed street walker Fantine in Les Miserables. Her teary eyed rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” is one of the movie’s many highlights, and it’s the type of performance that should net her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar. Since she’s an Oscar nomination vet (for 2008’s Rachel Getting Married), Hathaway should be more than ready to do the plethora of publicity that goes along with being part of the awards circus.
During the press conference for Les Miserables, Hathaway elaborated on how she stepped “into the reality” of Fantine, as she admits that Fantine’s pain “still lives in this world.” To hear Anne Hathaway, click on the media bar below:
Fifty million theatergoers can’t be wrong (or can they?) and are waiting with bated breath for the release of the big screen adaptation of LES MISERABLES, the West End-to-Broadway musical hit that has captivated audiences for decades. Directed for the screen by TOM HOOPER, the cast includes HUGH JACKMAN, RUSSELL CROWE, ANNE HATHAWAY, EDDIE REDMAYNE, AMANDA SEYFRIED, SACHA BARON COHEN and HELENA BONHAM-CARTER. Bound for Oscar glory, LES MIZ will definitely put a smile on the faces of its legion of fans. At the recent press conference to promote the film, TOM HOOPER talked about the warnings of nay-sayers before he took on the job. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
Comedy legends BETTE MIDLER and BILLY CRYSTAL team up to play grandparents called into babysitting service by a controlling daughter. Directed by ANDY FICKMAN from a script that was punched up by longtime screen-writing partners LOWELL GANZ and BABALOO MANDEL, the film promises plenty of holiday hi jinks aimed at the whole family. BILLY CRYSTAL sat down with us last week and admitted the film turned out to be better than he hoped. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
Filmmaker QUENTIN TARANTINO’s cheery holiday offering is DJANGO UNCHAINED, an homage to the blaxploitation flicks of the ’70s that is being hailed as “one of the year’s best” despite being the most politically incorrect and violent film of the season. Recalling such underground favorites as MANDINGO and THE LEGEND OF NIGGER CHARLIE, TARANTINO’S vision of antebellum slavery will, no doubt, polarize audiences. Being on the actual plantation set with its attention-to-detail proved to be a surreal experience for SAMUEL L. JACKSON, who confessed that it took a little time to get used to.

Opening in theaters later this month, THE GUILT TRIP stars BARBRA STREISAND and SETH ROGEN as a mother and son determined to make the most of a cross country road trip that tests the boundaries of their already strained relationship. Played (almost) completely for laughs, the film’s expected cliches and stereotypical characterizations are made bearable simply because of the total likeability of its stars.
At yesterday’s press conference to promote the film, STREISAND fielded questions about everything from movie making to movie watching and seemed to win over the crowd. Of this season’s crop of projects, she gave her seal of approval to the big screen adaptation of the stage musical LES MISERABLES and singled out director TOM HOOPER’S choice to film and record the songs live rather than in a studio as a smart move (just as it was 45 years ago when she did it first).
