It was an exciting morning for all actors and actresses out there yesterday as the Oscar nominations were announced and one star who was especially thrilled with her nomination was 'Les Miserables' star Anne Hathaway, who has said that she was 'crying and thrilled' at the same time.

According to the Mail Online, the star has even said that she nearly hyperventilated.

She said: "The first thing I did was just breathe. I almost hyperventilated because I realised I had been holding my breath for a couple of months.

"I started crying and I started laughing, and then doing both at the same time. And then the calls and the texts starting coming in."

Her co-star Hugh Jackman is up for Best Actor for his role in the musical, and admitted he was humbled by the honour.

"To be honest, it's very exciting but all a bit surreal, and it hasn't fully sunk in yet," Hugh said.

"This is a brilliant awards year that has been defined by an eclectic list of stories that have been told by incredibly talented and courageous filmmakers, and it's an honour to be mentioned in the same sentence as the other nominees in the Best Actor category."

He added: "Having hosted the show, I have seen so many different sides of the Oscars, but to be an actual nominee is something I never would have dreamed possible."

The film is up for an impressive eight Oscars, including the most prestigious Best Picture award.

Anne will compete in the Best Supporting Actress category against Amy Adams, Jackie Weaver, Helen Hunt and Sally Field.
