Anne Hathaway won the SAG Award for female actor in a supporting role Sunday night for playing the doomed grisette Fantine in the Tom Hooper-directed musical "Les Miserables."
The award is Hathaway's first SAG win; she was nominated in 2006 as part of the "Brokeback Mountain" cast and in 2009 for her supporting role in "Rachel Getting Married."
In playing Fantine, the 30-year-old actress followed in the footsteps of her mother, Kate McCauley, who played the role in the stage production's first U.S. tour. Hathaway also won a Golden Globe for the role earlier this month and is an odds-on Oscar favorite.
She and her "Les Misérables" costars are also nominated for the SAG cast award.
Hathaway beat out four veteran actresses, all of whom are past Oscar winners: Sally Field, who plays First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln in "Lincoln"; Helen Hunt, a sex surrogate in "The Sessions"; Maggie Smith, a cantankerous British retiree in "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel"; and Nicole Kidman, a sultry death-row groupie in "The Paperboy."
