Whoopi's Not Impressed, Anne & James!

| Filed under: Anne HathawayWhoopi GoldbergJames FrancoOscars

We don't think Anne Hathaway and James Franco should expect to be invited back to the Oscars next year. At least, not as hosts.

As far as we can tell, no one seems that impressed with their schtick, including former hosts.

This morning, on The View, Whoopi Goldberg, a former host and winner of the Oscars, offered her two cents on James and Anne's performance. To her credit, she was much gentler to them then some of the other critics, but she didn't shy away from laying out some truths for them.

Check out the video (above) to hear what Whoopi had to say about them.

Here's one thing, in particular, that we totally agreed with. She said:

"But this is a show that, it's on you to keep it going. It's on you. You have to be able to surf in this show. And I didn't think they surfed as much as they could have."

To say the least!

    Someone's a day late in posting this. It's not that big of a deal…get over it. It's just a freaking awards ceremony honring what…people that play make-belive on film!?! America will not fall apart because 2 people with zero experience, hosted one of history's most boring shows ever. Hey stupid, you can always change the channel.

    Anne Hathaway, I am afraid she has hurt her career. I love watching movies with Anne Hathaway. I can't wait to see her play Catwoman. But she has to work hard to improve her image, because it was hurt at the Oscars. All day Monday and Tuesday, I heard how disappointed viewers were with Anne Hathaway's performance.

    I can't believe how scandalized they are by someone saying "fuck".

    Okay I do not understand why everyone is blaming Anne and James for the Oscars being boring! If the hosts are not comedians then they do not write their own material, so whoever wrote those awful lines should be the one in the media who is being critized for the Oscars. Everyone needs to leave Anne and James alone!

    Whoopi is a bitter has-been who does nothing but make excuses for why she's so pissed off all the time. She constantly pulls the race card, which is pathetic and desperate. I personally enjoyed the awards show. Not sure why a show has to be raunchy and "cutting edge" in order for some people to enjoy it. James and Anne did a fine job and I commend them for keeping it classy. Whoopi - how about you consider supporting your fellow actors as opposed to always trying to prove how much better you are?

    Whoopi's opinion matters about as much as a Big Mac to an Anorexic. I think Anne and James did a great job. Whoopi is pissed because they are both WHITE. I guarantee you if one (and or both) of the hosts were BLACK, Whoopi would have licking their colon. Constant praise for a job well done!!

    Anne's gowns were amazing and looked amazing on her. she kind of overacted and he underacted. big deal. its a boring show anyway.

  8. 8

    Seriously, can we just stop the criticizing? I have watched many Oscar shows in my lifetime and aside from Billy Crystal, all were about the same. Anne and James were just the like the others before them which was neither bad or good. It's amazing how they were talked up by the media and then detroyed by the media. Give is a rest already. It was an awards show. And Perez, please, drop the endless post about their performance. You beat it to death already.

    Don't really care about Anne and James at this moment. I've heard enough about them and I get it, they sucked. What bothers me in this clip from The View is that they think Christian Bale forgot his wife's name, when to me it just seemed like he was so overwhelmed that he couldn't finish his sentence. I don't know why them thinking that he forgot her name annoyed me so much but it did.

    Re: Thomas Chi – Really? Charlie Sheen orders a brief case full of coke and has a house full of porn stars and he still had the number 1 rated show on TV. I highly doubt this will have any effect on her career. If anything, I was amazed at what a lovely voice she has. She is a throwback to old hollywood. She has it all - singing, acting and dancing. Cant say that for many others.

    Fuck Whoopi- The worst thing she could have ever done was join The View! I went from loving to HATING HER! All she does is Bitch and Moan about EVERYTHING (and tells us how wonderful SHE is)- Go smoke another blunt and shut the fuck up already!

    I thought Christan Bale stopped because he got choked up and tried not to cry, not that he forgot her name. I'm pretty sure thats what happened.

  15. 15

    Whoopi needs to stfu sometimes. She is always patting herself on the back and reminding everyone about her awards. She didn't even deserve the Oscar the year she won. Her ego is over inflated by the other women too. Joy agrees with everything she says and Barbara kisses her ass. Sherri is just an idiot. Maybe the Toy Story joke wasn't funny, but how did she not get it? Then they go on about Christian Bale supposedly forgetting his wife's name. It was obvious he was choked up you stupid hags.

    Re: AmeliePoulain – THIS!! it annoyed me too

    Re: CyndiePRe: FaithHillFanatic – I agree with both of y'all. Whoopi is nothing more than a racist has-been with no class. And cyndiep, you make a very good point by stating that things don't necessarily have to be "cutting edge" to be enjoyed. It's really sad that a lot of our society has forgotten the simplicities of the old shows that made television great in the first place!

    OMG they were just looking for something to pick apart! Christian Bale was so obviously choked up! He was trying to hold back tears. They're stupid. And yeah Anne and James honestly they're both great actors but they were awful. They should have gotten someone like Jonah Hill and some other funny actress lol

    Re: darav2 – that is what happened. they will make a story out of anything.

    "she was much gentler to them THAN some of the other critics"

  21. 21

    Whoopi is so damn full of herself and I am tired of it. It's pathetic how the women are always feeding her ego. Whoopi is a very bitter woman. She also treats the guests like crap. Is it me, or does she always have a sour, snobby look on her face when a majority of the guests speak? Is that woman ever happy? Oh and don't get me started on when she talks about sex…yuck!

    James strange of course. Had an virtual romane with Lithuanian actress Renata Kutinaite?, interested in telepathy like by website "kibernetika (webs. com)" Smooth head he is.

  23. 23

    That ’cause nothing makes a liberal happy. Think about it. Those people are just always miserable.

  24. 24

    bitch, bitch, bitch …. this is all Whoopi ever does.

    Comedians seem to do better as hosts because they improvise. In a live show they need to be able to react to what happens as it unfolds. Actors typically rely on script. Big difference on the outcome. As the show went on, it looked like Anne Hathaway was overcompensating and James Franco just gave up. He looked a little buzzed by the end of the show. Don't mess with tradition is the lesson.

  26. 26

    I wish people would stop knocking Anne and James. They did the best they could. They're NOT comedians but were funny enough. Jeepers already.

  27. 27

    Noone gives a rats butt what whoopie thinks about ANYTHING. She needs to go far away.

  28. 28

    God people should just leave Anne and James alone. They're not comedians so they just followed the script they were given. They didn't even think of improvising like a comedian would.

    Also that comment about Christian Bale really rubbed me the wrong way. He was choked up, he didn't forget his wife's name.

  29. 29

    Everyone is saying "they're not comedians".
    Ok. Well I guess we could take three things from that.

    1.) If they were asked to host the Oscars, both knowing they're NOT comedians, should they not have found a better way to host the awards? I'm sorry but if you're asked to host THE ACADEMY AWARDS, you work your ass off to do a great job. Their problem wasn't that they weren't funny, it was that they lacked energy and spark. They lacked in chemistry. They seemed apathetic about being there. They had no rhythm, they seemed very amateur.


    2.) Knowing that they are not comedians, and knowing their own talents and limits, they should have turned down the invite.


    3.) They never should have be offered in the first place.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh STUT UP BARBARA!!!! SHE won the Oscar she can say what the hell she likes!

  31. 31

    I don't watch awards shows but form what iv read (about nearly all of them) its seems as if nobody ever likes the host. is everybody just setting the bar to high or is it just a case of bitching because you can?

  32. 32

    LMAO james franco was so high.

  33. 33

    What the hell are they so hysterical about at the end….Christian Bale clearly didn't forget his wife's name, he was shocked cos he got emotional and stopped to compose himself……it's amazing how people can twist things to make drama that doesn't exist….and Whoopi does nothing but moan about the Oscars constantly…..sheesh…give it a rest!!!!!
