I remember being especially excited when it was announced that Anne Hathaway and James Franco will host the 2011 Oscars telecast. Until then, Franco will turn from a silly stoner. Become a disgraceful actor After years of being accused of perjury,
The Oscars transformed the typical comic host into a younger and charismatic actor, a reason for celebration. At least for my 16-year-old self, who was still blind to the monotony of award shows. I spent my teenage years scrolling through Tumblr and NBC single-cam sitcoms. In my feeble mind, Hathaway and Franco would be modern home-destroying Abbott and Costello. I also publicly posted my misunderstanding on Facebook. “James Franco and Anne Hathaway is hosting this year’s Oscars, I’m delighted,” I said boldly to the world. The post received 3 likes.
a few weeks later I sat in front of the television desperately. I trust these two and here they are not just disappointed me but also repeatedly kicked my lifeless body. I bet my reputation on this! How can I show my face the next morning? Someone in Journalism 101 asked me what I thought of the ceremony, Anne Hath-a-Will, but Anne didn’t do the Hath-A-Way.
Although I had to watch most of the ceremony with my hands to avoid further embarrassment. But nothing was more sour than the couple’s opening monologue. This is the time to die. This is a huge opportunity for Hathaway and Franco to show they’re just as talented as Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg, if they’re comedians and not comedians.” The real “what? We can all stand to have a little faith.
From the moment Hathaway and Franco walked out on stage. The fog machine condenses the cinematic water droplets behind them. as if they were in an Irish field Not the Dolby Theater, things got off to a rough start. Although the author of their monologue insists that Franco was not stoned during the ceremony, But it was impossible not to notice his glass red eyes and empty expression. Whether or not there’s a little bizarre behavior involved. Franco’s low energy didn’t entirely match Hathaway’s energetic personality. when the host of the night did not arrive The audience didn’t buy even a second.
Gotta give credit to her. Hathaway really gave her everything. She has long been one of Hollywood’s most charismatic actresses. Thanks to her accessibility in real life and her unique ability to transform into her character. But that night saw Hathaway first brush with cringe. “Was: You’re naked. You’re nominated,” she joked, referring to her 2010 total nudity on Saccharine. Love and other drugs“Never again… never again,” she said, dragging away to make room for the laughter of the audience. What she got instead was a slightly uncomfortable laugh.
The monologue is less than five minutes long. But watching it all play out like an uncomfortable car wreck felt like an hour. at one point Franco tries to find his mother in the audience and fails to see her. Made even more uncomfortable when Hathaway took her eyes off her mother for a fraction of a second. A random nod to their family is a worthwhile interaction between Franco and Mark Wahlberg, two not-so-cute modern examples of Hollywood’s reluctance to leave problematic figures in the “singularity.” past
Franco and Hathaway ended the show’s introduction with a convoluted joke about the prevalence of lesbians in 2010 theaters (“toy story 3, where is your father?”) That was very funny. Can’t even be considered a slight insult. What followed was a night blurred by bizarre costume choices and dead-end jokes that, years later, Hathaway and Franco were considered the worst Oscar hosts ever.
but just like me Refusing to stoop in shame in the high school hall the next day. At least Hathaway had “we suck,” she blatantly told Andy Cohen last year. like Hathaway did Les Miserables In 2013? There are no horrifying bad jokes. that can take away good feelings of being able to crush your success in front of everyone
