At the end of the day, Anne Hathaway's got herself an Oscar.

She was named Best Supporting Actress tonight for her role in Les Misérables, the win capping a stellar awards season for the 30-year-old star, who smiled brightly and planted a big smooch on hubby Adam Shulman upon hearing her name.

"It came true," squealed Hathaway, clutching her statue, apparently referring to the dream she had dreamed about winning an Academy Award.

"Thank you so much to the Academy for this and thank you so much for nominating me with Helen Hunt, Jackie Weaver, Amy Adams and Sally Field," she said, namechecking her competitors. "I look up to you all so much. It's just been such an honor, thank you."

She went on to give thanks to her costars, the film's crew, her "team" of publicists, managers and other behind-the-scenes-types, her friends, family and, last but certainly not least, Shulman.

"My husband, by far and away the greatest moment of my life was the one when you walked into it. Thank you so much for this," Hathaway added. "Here's hoping that someday, in the not too distant future, the misfortunes of Fantine will only be found in stories and never more in real life."

Hathaway was previously nominated for Best Actress in 2009 for Rachel Getting Married.
