Anne Hathaway's dream came true. The Les Miserables actress, 30, won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress at the Academy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 24.

Hathaway, whose Prada gown inspired a HathawayNipple Twitter account, proudly took the stage to accept her award. "It came true. Thank you so much to the Academy for this." 

After the Oscar-winning actress thanked fellow nominees Sally Field, Jacki Weaver, Helen Hunt and Amy Adams, she gave a special thank you to costar Hugh Jackman. "I must thank Hugh Jackman," she said. "Hugh, you're the best."

Hathaway then thanked a long list of cast and crew members as well as her personal team. "I want to thank my friends — especially the ones who are cheering from Crosby street tonight," she said. "My family, who I'm so blessed to be a part of."

And Hathaway gave a touching note of thanks to husband Adam Shulman, whom she married in September 2012. "By far the greatest moment of my life was the one when you walked into it," Hathaway said. "I love you so much."

Finally, the Les Miserables star, who played dying, destitute prostitute (and mom) Fantine in the film, concluded with a special message. "Here's hoping that some day, in the not too distant future, the misfortunes of Fantine will only be found in stories and never more in real life."
