Hathaway's performance of course isn't bad. But it's of a piece of the musical Les Mis, which in my opinion just isn't a very good moviie. I suppose the last Oscar contender in this vein was Oliver!.
Chicago, actually. Winner of the 2002 Academy Award for Best Picture.

As for Anne Hathaway, I'm rooting for her. But I have a longstanding celebrity crush on her and believe she can do no wrong, so I am biased. Were it up to me, Anne Hathaway would get all the Oscars.
