    Actress Anne Hathaway was nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Play for her performance in "Twelfth Night" but lost the honor to Jan Maxwell of "The Royal Family." The annual Drama Desk awards recognized all genres of New York theater, not just Broadway productions.

    Anne Hathaway is stepping into a new Cinderella story.

    The star of "Ella Enchanted" and "The Princess Diaries" will appear in the film adaptation of David Nicholls' popular novel "One Day," about a working-class woman's romance with a charming rich man, played by Jim Sturgess.
