LOS ANGELES — Anne Hathaway has won the Academy Award for best supporting actor for her teary, show-stopping performance in "Les Miserables."

Hathaway famously cropped her hair on camera playing the gaunt Fantine, and her full-throated, one-take rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" was classic Oscar-winning stuff. She was one of the night's most obvious shoo-ins, having swept the major awards leading up to the Oscars.

It's Hathaway's first Oscar. She was previously nominated in 2008 for "Rachel Getting Married."

The other nominees Sunday night were Amy Adams ("The Master"), Sally Field ("Lincoln"), Helen Hunt ("The Sessions") and Jacki Weaver ("Silver Linings Playbook").

The 85th Academy Awards are airing live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles with host Seth MacFarlane.
