Anne Hathaway On Hosting The Oscars!

| Filed under: Anne HathawayJames FrancoOscars

Anne Had A Blast Hosting

Billy Crystal gave Anne his approval after last night's Oscars!

Many people are saying the the hosting wasn't up to par, but we did find it a bit entertaining and thought that the duo did a pretty decent job!

Anne was especially excited to get the Crystal seal:

“That felt really good. I didn’t realize I was doing it for [Crystal’s praise,] but it turns out I was because my heart just exploded,” the actress said. “We rehearsed together… the first thing I did was kneel before [Crystal,] and take his hand and the second thing I did was [ask him,] ‘Tell me what to do,’ and he said, ‘Just look like you want to be there every single second that you are on camera.’ I’m like, ‘Well, I got that part in the bag,’ because this whole thing has been such an amazing adventure and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world right now.

“I was working with the loveliest people, it was the most effortless collaboration that it never felt like work,” Anne continued. “I really mean it, it was an adventure. And I was so curious what was going to happen next, I had no idea what I was doing, so I was just really curious.”

Awww, it's fab to see that she had such a good time!

We could absolutely tell that she was having a blast up there, too!

Here's what she had to say about her partner in crime:

“I’m in love with James Franco. The world is in love with James Franco right now. He’s wonderful, and thank God for him. He’s so original, he’s doing his own thing and he doesn’t care about what anyone thinks about him, I really look up to him.”

We're in love with him too, though, we think he was under-utilized last night! It was almost if they were holding him back on purpose!!

We did laugh pretty hard when he congratulated the technical Oscar winners as 'nerds' though!

Thoughts??

    She STUNK ! Really, truly awful ! ! She was so phoney excited when , say, Steven Speilberg came onstage. She was just a little too cutsey-cutsey. I preferred James Franco's laid-back stoner vibe, This one - she was 'hopped-up' on something…and the sad thing is, it did not do A THING for her !



  2. 2

    She tried to come off as young, hip -'new' Hollywood, but came across more as the last girl asked to dance at the school prom. Nerdyish. Again, a terrible choice !

    HEY PEREZ? YOU MISSED THE STORY ABOUT SPENCER PRATT SAYING HE WANTS TO BE CHARLIE'S PUBLICIST. I HOPE HE DOES SO CHARLIE CAN SLIT HIS THROAT AND HOPEFULLY TAKE THAT PIG SPENCER MARRIED OUT TOO.
    .
    ANNE HATHAWAY WASN'T THAT BAD. SHE WASN'T THAT GOOD, BUT SHE WASN'T THAT BAD. I THINK THEATRE/COMEDY PEOPLE WITH SEASONED STAGE EXPERIENCE WORKING A CROWD SHOULD HOST THOUGH.

    Easy sweetheart. You are fit enough to fit into abnormally expensive gowns, read a teleprompter well, and smile - you didn't just walk on the moon or cure cancer. In the grand scheme of things, you didn't really accomplish anything.

    Anne actually surprised me last night.
    I liked her. Not as a co-host for the Oscars.
    Someone older and more prestegious is needed for that.
    -
    I had never seen anything she's been in, except for 15 seconds on a tv ad.
    She sang in that Broadway kind of way, which I hate but she sang on key, and she did the best with the mediocre lines they gave them to do.
    -
    She was even attractive in some ways.
    -
    No one hosted it better than Johnny Carson! Class all the way.

    Anne was so wired last night.
    Reminided me of the good ole days, when I would get the really good diet pills in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.
    -
    They kept you up most of the night, but hey, you're Size 0 or 2, and your dance partner could lift your ass up, for the overhead lifts!

    Re: luvs2tango – i THOUGHT SO…BUT THE DRUGS WERE NOT A GOOD MIX FOR HER…SHE CAME OFF TOO HYPER…..BAD BAD TRIP !



  10. 10

    I don't think she was that bad at least she looked like she wanted to be there in fact most the complains are about him and his lack of caring. Hopefully they will get a better host or hosts next year.



  11. 11

    She was horrible and no clue on what she was doing. Totally lost up there. It seems like there was no preparation. at all.



  12. 12

    Be-Atch, you win! She stunk.
    -
    I was trying to be charitable, when it's a difficult thing to do when talking about celebrities.
    -
    I like Ricky Gervais' style for MC.
    -
    Let's face it. The 'real show' is watching Fashion Police tonight!

    It was dreadful just dreadful…. the 2 of them had absolutely no chemistry and if she screeched 1 more time like she was at her peep rally I was going to barf up my nachos.

    She was wonderful this girl is an amazing entertainer, I think she will be a legend. Jarms Frinko? I don't predict anything great for him.



  16. 16

    …she kept tripp'n over the telepromptor's words…bad bad bad…..



  17. 17

    Re: 7tizz – LoL ! SHE DOES RATHER HAVE AN AIR OF SELF IMPORTANCE WITH THIS STATEMENT, DOESN'T SHE ? !



  18. 18

    Re: luvs2tango – THANK YOU. I ALWAYS TRY TO BE AS UN-BIASED AS POSSIBLE….BUT, C'MON ! SHE STUNK ! ! !

    I thought that Anne and James totally SUCKED!!! It was the most boring hosting job of the Oscars I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot in my 56 years… I say bring back Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin next year, they were hilarious last year. 2 thumbs down for last night's hosting… boring boring boring.

    Re: luvs2tango – haha, I agree… the real show is tonite: Fashion Police!



  22. 22

    She was such a bore!



  23. 23

    Oh, Bullshit. The whole thing stank on ice.



  24. 24

    Whoopi, Billy Crystal, Steve Martin, David Letterman, even Jon Stewart, what a joke, what was Hollywood trying to pull by selling us Anne and James before releasing their films this year. What studios have advantage now? This was self-promotion, publicity, but little to do with the Hollywood that started the Oscar ceremonies at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. Yes, some of us study the History of Film. Gable, Cagney, Garson, Taylor, I am not sure Anne and James earned this opportunity, and that fact that we have to ask about our comedians in question says volumes about the decision to cast the two at the Oscars.

    Loved her, hated him.



  26. 26

    at least she had fun cause I didn't she was so boring maybe james could've been more funny if had a better partner



  27. 27

    she was trying way too hard to be quirky, and ended up just being annoying in my opinion.



  28. 28

    I like Anne. She's adorable. But I don't think she was the best choice for hostess. The position demands someone who has more poise. She had too much of a cheerleader thing going on. Imagine someone like Oprah hosting. Acting as host or hostess just requires that much sophistication to be able to stand next to, but not overpower the stars that are being honored. Not a place to get your feet wet. Sorry Anne!



  29. 29

    It was THE WORST AA that I have ever seen. Snorefest. Get the hook!



  30. 30

    My wish is that they never host the Oscars again! Anne was just okay although too hyper at certain points. But James was awful! Bottomline, bring back the oldies - I'll take Billy Crystal!



  31. 31

    I still can't belive that she's going to play Catwoman… Oh, Nolan, WHY?!



  32. 32

    She was bubblie and cute and Franco was a total bore! She should have hosted alone.

    gervais is having the last laugh! HA
