When the Les Misérables actress' name was called during Sunday night's Oscars, we were certain Anne would make us blush with an overly-emotional speech of gratitude like she's done at this year's BAFTAs, SAG awards, and Golden Globes…
But instead, she kept her Oscars talk (above) calm, classy — yet still poignant and heartfelt! We were VURRY impressed.
And apparently, that was JUST what Anne was hoping for!
According to an insider, Anne practiced her Oscars acceptance speech over and over, wanting it to be perfect and NOT over the top so that people would LIKE her and not be too critical!
"She was very aware that she had been the butt of everyone's jokes."
Job well done, darling lady!
But we also have adored her previous speeches of the season!
She's bubbled over like a too-full frothy brew every time her name has been announced, which we feel makes for a rather genuine reaction!
Either way, Anne has represented herself supremely well throughout these chaotic events, and deserves every accolade that she's gained!
Ch-ch-check out Anne celebrating her Oscar win (below)!
