Like really hot. But his hosting skills last night…lacking.
I don’t have much else to add. Franco and Hathaway weren’t atrocious, but they were clearly not at ease. Anne’s nervous speeches were reminiscent of her role of the awkward Mia on The Princess Diaries – the girl who threw up after giving a speech at the beginning of the movie.
But it’s not easy hosting a show. And they weren’t responsible for the writing behind their speeches. Also, the ceremony wasn’t terrible – it was just a tad lackluster and occasionally awkward.
Why am I writing about this? What original input do I have? None. But I woke up at 2 a.m. and watched until 5.30 am, and blogging about it makes the experience feel a bit less pointless. I didn’t stay awake for the Best Picture award.
One observation: Watching the show in Sweden makes the crime of Melissa Leo’s F bomb quite comical, as the presenters here were cussing up a storm. English swear words are generally the only thing I understand when I listen to Swedish.
Here’s a clip from an old, funny show.
