With Best Supporting Actress statues for her work in “Les Miserables” from the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild, Anne Hathaway has one little hurdle left to cross in the race for awards season domination: the Oscars. But while she’s spent the season schmoozing with innumerable Academy voters, someone has gone and given her a “For Your Consideration” boost even more memorable than Melissa Leo’s cheesecake campaign for “The Fighter.”

Over on You Tube, you can now watch actress-singer Emma Fitzpatrick sing “For Your Consideration,” an expert spoof of Hathaway’s “I Dreamed a Dream” performance in “Les Miserables.” “Consider me on Oscar night,” sings Fitzpatrick, her hair shorn and face artfully smudged like Hathaway’s doomed Fantine. “I played a prostitute who died/Her life was really sad and awful/But I was bold and unafraid I let them give me this new haircut,” go the lyrics, which also include gems like “I lost half my body weight/But they never did a wide shot” and “I sang a song about my woes/My hopes and fears my dreams and wishes/And though I had to blow my nose, I did it all in one take, bitches!” Check it out below:

Fitzpatrick, whose work has included parts in “The Social Network” and “The Collection,” told the Global Post that she landed the role in the parody, which was directed by Alberto Belli, through a mutual friend. “This whole thing is insane to me,” she said in reference to the now 435,000 views the video has gotten. “[I]t’s like Christmas every time I look.”

The 27-year-old actress also said that she’ll be pulling for Hathaway on Oscar night, and that “there was no malicious intent” involved in the making of the spoof. “I think as someone in the public eye, you have to be able to take a joke and laugh at yourself…when you’re really good and you’re in public, that’s going to happen,” she said. Whether Hathaway will get the last laugh on February 24 remains to be seen, but there’s certainly plenty of laughter to go around now.
