Anne Hathaway’s dog was left nonplussed by its owner’s Oscar nomination.
The actress was at home with her pooch when she learnt she had been shortlisted for a coveted gong.
As she and her parents celebrated, her dog looked on bemused, she told entertainment website HollyScoop.com
She said: “I was with my parents and my dog when I got the news and we were all overjoyed – although I’m not sure my dog knew what was going on.”
Anne has been nominated in the actress in a leading role category for her role in Rachel Getting Married.
She is up against Angelina Jolie, Melissa Leo, Meryl Streep, and Golden Globe winner Kate Winslet.
Anne said: “It is such a thrill to be recognised in this category with these remarkably talented women.
“This is a great day to be an actress.”
It is the first time that the 26-year-old actress has been nominated for an Academy Award.
