Hathaway – who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Les Misérables – isn't spending too much time worrying about it.

"Whatever happens in two weeks, happens. It won't be the worst thing that happens to me if I don't win, and with my husband by my side it won't be the best thing either. So I am feeling very good about whatever," the actress, 30, told reporters backstage after nabbing a best supporting actress statue at Sunday's British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards in London.

Daniel Day-Lewis Takes Home BAFTA Award

"I don't know what my lads are going to think of this," the father of three said holding up his BAFTA award, Britain's answer to the Oscar, "but when they see me in a photograph with Daniel Radcliffe they are going to take me really seriously."

The admiration between the two Daniels appeared mutual. The Harry Potter star told PEOPLE that of all the celebrities milling about the Royal Opera House in London's Covent Garden – including Kate Hudson, Jessica Biel, Emily Blunt, Sylvester Stallone, and more – Day-Lewis was the star he was most eager to meet. "I do think that he's sort of incredible," Radcliffe said.
