Emma Fitzpatrick, a 27 year old singer/actress from LA, does a spot on impersonation of Anne Hathaway singing “I Dreamed a Dream” from the film ‘Les Misérables.’
In the parody, the actress plays Hathaway listing the reasons why she should be up for an Oscar in the best supporting role category for 2013. Indeed, now that we know how important campaigning for an Oscars is during this season – more important than even watching the films – the spoof gets even more poignant.
The lyrics for For Your Consideration:
Consider me on Oscar night, Anne Hathaway ‘Les Miserables’
I play a prostitute who died
Her life was really sad and awful.
But I was bold and unafraid
I let then give me this new haricut
And I lost half my body weight
But then they never did a wide shot.
And I sang the vocals live
No they did not re-record them
I coughed and wheezed and cried
In every scene until I died.
I sing a song about my woes
My hopes and fears and dreams and wishes
And though i had to blow my nose
I did it all in one take bitches.
And now I prey you’ll vote for me
I”ll stand up when I hear you clapping
And I all ready have my speech
Oh, gawd, is this really happening?
And now I know this role will be
My ticket to a Best Supporting.
Members of the Academy
Please don’t forget Anne with an ‘e.’
Kudos to Alberto Belli, a 28-year-old graduate student at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, who directed and co-wrote the lyrics with Robert Hill.
I was really excited about the movie and I thought Anne Hathaway was terrific as Fantine. This is meant as a homage more than anything else. Anne is an amazing actress and deserves every award she is getting. I’ve also seen parodies Anne has done of other actresses (“Homeland” [on “Saturday Night Live”]) and admire her sense of humor. I did this sketch inspired by the press that surrounds her about her speeches and nominations. It is evident that she really wants an Oscar, [then] again, who doesn’t? I also like the humor the Academy uses in their shows with the hosts, and wanted to do something that paid tribute to that.
