Every Anne Hathaway Performance, Ranked From "Why?" To "Give This Woman An Oscar"

Dearly beloved, we have gathered here today to celebrate the incomparable brilliance of Anne Jacqueline Hathaway (or Annie to close friends).

Not only is she an Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning actor, but she is a campy, accent-loving queen AND she was my "crush" in high school when I was still in the closet. But more important than me having an Anne Hathaway-themed birthday party (to prove my straightness, of course), is that she is one of the most versatile performers gracing our screens today.

Every Anne Hathaway Performance, Ranked From

Sure, she can weep in a high-end, prestige drama, but she’s also serving gut-busting comedy in rom-coms, spandex-assassin realness in action films, full-range, heaven-sent, sonic pipes in musicals, and award-winning, disembodied voice humor in animated movies. Anne refuses to be boxed in, and she’s not afraid to get really weird (I’m looking at you, Serenity). She has hosted the Oscars. She has hosted SNL. She has licked a rhinestoned sledge hammer. And if she doesn’t EGOT, I’ll eat that flip-flop from The Princess Diaries beach shack scene. Seriously, Broadway producers, get this woman on stage STAT.

In honor of Anne Hathaway’s illustrious career, and the arrival of the WeWork-based miniseries WeCrashed, I have decided to rank her performances on both film and TV.

Cameos and voiceover roles are included, but her appearances in documentaries and as herself are not. Also, it should be noted that this ranking is based solely on her performances and NOT the movies as a whole. So unfortunately, Meryl Streep’s iconic cerulean speech in The Devil Wears Prada does not factor into this ranking, but thankfully neither does Russell Crowe’s warbling in Les Misérables.

So let's not move at a glacial pace, and begin the countdown.
