Anne & Franco Act Out Your Oscars Skit, Ricky!

| Filed under: Anne HathawayJames FrancoRicky GervaisOscars

And can we just say - it's not so great. Sorry.

Ricky Gervais posted on his blog recently a little ditty he hoped to see Anne Hathaway and James Franco perform on the Oscars on Sunday.

Since there is no way in hell that is ever going to happen, the duo obliged him during a pre-show interview today and gave the script a run-through.

Check out their response to his jokes in the video (above).

Take a listen to James throwing shade at Ricky! Someone is NOT a fan!

Ricky Gervais Writes Oscar Monologue For James And Anne

| Filed under: Anne HathawayJames FrancoRicky GervaisOscars

Ricky Gervais Suggestions

While Ricky Gervais' chances of ever giving an opening monologue at the Academy Awards may have been ruined, that doesn't mean he won't write one anyway.

The controversial Golden Globes host posted an original opening monologue on his blog for James Franco and Anne Hathaway to use "in case they have a few minutes to fill".

Oh geez. This will be inneresting to say the least! LOLz!

Due to the length, we can't post the ENITRE thing, but we'll give you the highlights.

Here's how he thinks James and Anne should introduce themselves:

JF
You probably know me from 127 Hours where I play a man trapped in an enclosed space who decides he would rather cut his own arm off than stay where he was. Now that sounds "way out" but wait till half way through this fucking ceremony and you'll start to identify with him.

AH
And I'm the new Catwoman. The first white woman to play that role since Michelle Pfeiffer. I want it to be an inspiration to all white people everywhere. Your dreams can come true in Hollywood too.

Then Ricky dives into the Academy's decision to hire actors instead of comedians, as the script continues:

JF
Usually they hire comedians to host The Oscars, but tonight, instead, you get us!

AH
No comedians tonight. And do you know why? Because comics are ugly.

JF
Especially that rude obnoxious one who played the Steve Carell part in the English remake of The Office.

AH
But you can all relax because Ricky Gervais is in London…

(Nervous laughter)

He's doing some charity work.
Yeah, he's visiting orphans with cancer.
He's telling them what bald little losers they are…

Talk about an attention grabber! Where else does he go? How about his MASSIVE fortune.

JF
Ricky Gervais is now worth $80,000,000. The obnoxious Brit confirmed the figure, adding,"Yes and my dentist hasn't seen a penny."

AH
Yeah, why doesn't he get his teeth straightened and bleached like everyone else in Hollywood?

JF
It's a good question Anne. For the same reason he doesn't have botox or suck up to important producers - there's something wrong with him.

Oh, and it gets better!

JF
Anyway let's get this show on the road.
There were some great kids' movies this year.
I took a five year old to see Toy Story 3 last week.

AH
Did you enjoy it?

JF
No it was ruined for me because the little brat was screaming and crying all the way through the film saying, "Who are you?" "You're not my daddy." "Take me back to the park where you grabbed me…"

(Laughter)

AH
Oh James, you are a card. And your slightly risky jokes are not threatening because you're one of us. And you are so handsome.

We are stunned. This man has no fear!

It seems like Ricky feels that Hollywood may put a little too much emphasis on appearance. What?! No way! Ha!

We must say, it's nothing less than what we expected from the unabashed comedian, but sadly, we don't think the hosts will be using any of his jokes this Sunday.

What do U think of Ricky's Oscar script?

Nerd alert!

We kid. We kid.

Oscar hostess Anne Hathaway showed off her geeky side on Wednesday night at the Harvey Weinstein and Dior dinner held at the Chateau Marmont.

Annie wore a black pencil skirt, white ruffle top and black thick rimmed glasses.

Hopefully this isn't a prelude to her Oscar outfits.

Anne Hathaway Channels 2006 With Her First Oscar Promo

| Filed under: Anne HathawayOscars

Oh, Anne Hathaway! How could you?! Whose idea was this?!

At the start of Anne's first solo promo for the Academy Awards, we swelled with joy. There she was, statuesque and gorgeous, perched a top the same balcony as Madonna had for her role in Evita. And as the music started to play and we got our first hints of Don't Cry For Me Genovia Argentina, we were ready to be all kinds of impressed.

And then she had to go and ruin it! Curse you Wreckx-N-Effect and your catchy, booty shaking jam!

Behold the travesty that is this promo (above)!

Okay, we kid, we kid. It's mildly humorous. We still would have rather seen her work her Princess Diaries fanny into a frenzy over Andrew Lloyd Webber rather than Rump Shaker. Bah!

What The Heck Is This, James Franco?

| Filed under: Anne HathawayJames FrancoOscars

The enigma that is James Franco as given us a new little video to ponder over.

On the heels of releasing his version of Cher's Burlesque anthem, James just posted this quick video of him and Anne Hathaway. It may be presumptuous of us to infer that this is footage from a bit they are doing for the Oscars. Then again, what other explanation is there? We can't imagine Anne having enough time on her hands to play Grease dress-up with him just for funsies! Right?

Check out the video (above) and see what U make of it.

The Oscars Are Going To Be REALLY Different This Year!

| Filed under: Anne HathawayAwardzJames FrancoOscars

Anne And Franco Hosting Is A Big Deal

So, we told you guys about the change in the envelopes this year at the Oscars, but it seems like that isn't the only major change to happen to the show.

The Academy Awards really seems like it's gettin' a reboot!

First and foremost, the best news of the changes has just gotta be the death of the montage. Last year they did a montage in dedication to horror movies, which was fine and all, but montages seem like they make the entire show just drag on. We're DEF glad for that.

Another good one is that there is a male and female host, and they're young!

About having a male and female host:

"There has never been a male-female duo who physically shared the same Oscar stage in the history of the broadcasts. Although plenty of actresses have shared emcee duties, they've all been part of tag-team groups of three- or four-host combos. Other opposite-sex hosts have been part of bicoastal telecasts — with one in New York and one in Los Angeles. So having a male-female duo interacting in person would be a genuine first."

We really are looking forward to James Franco's shenanigans and Anne Hathaway's attempts to reel him in!

Though, she'll probably end up being on the same level as him! Should be fab!

They're also bringing back the performances of nominated song, which is great, and also doing away with the relatively new addition of past winners talking about present nominees.

The testimonials made the show seem long as well, so we aren't upset they're gone!

Other things to change include having "Mominees" or the moms of nominees to live tweet the show, having a choir of children from NYC sing Over The Rainbow, and a brand new virtual reality set.

The set will rely on projections instead of tangible decorations, allowing the show to change style on the fly.

Sounds great to us!

Good luck, James and Anne!!

Will U be watching??
