Eye View Hollywood, Young Hosts On Oscar Production, Not So Marvelous

The reviews are coming in — and several critics weren’t very impressed with the performance of Oscar co-hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway.

Many seemed to agree that Hathaway gave it her all, but Franco didn’t fare as well as his co-host.

“In what could go down as one of the worst Oscar telecasts in history, a bad and risky idea — letting two actors host — proved out in spectacularly unwatchable fashion on the biggest of all nights for the film world,” The Hollywood Reporter’s Tim Goodman wrote.

 “Despite an overall rewarding of brilliant performances and no truly shocking didn’t-see-that-coming upsets, the 83rd Annual Academy Awards will likely be remembered as the night James Franco couldn’t act like a host.”

“To be fair, Hathaway did seem capable of firing off the occasional one-liner, but Franco came off as a tad bewildered, as though he were working on a term paper during the commercial breaks”.

Oscar production going for younger demographics, not looking so marvelous.
