VIDEO: James Franco Blames Lackluster Oscars on Anne Hathaway

Speculation has run the gamut on James Franco’s uninspired Oscar performance. Some have claimed drugs were behind his sleepy delivery, while others have accused the co-host of simply not caring.

“People said I was under the influence,” Franco said on the Late Show with David Letterman. “I love her, but Anne Hathaway is so energetic, I think the Tasmanian Devil would look stoned standing next to [her].”

Fair point. “I never dreamed of being the best Oscar host ever… It doesn’t mean I didn’t care and it doesn’t mean I didn’t try hard, right?” James Franco asked.

Though some have accused the Academy Award nominee of exactly that. Watch Franco’s interview in the video above, and tell us if he’s managed to win you over yet.

At the Oscars: The 83rd Annual Academy Awards

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Award Shows, Prime Time, Specials, ABC, Gossip,

James Franco and Anne Hathaway Hosting 83rd Academy AwardsThe 83rd Academy Awards opened with a montage of the handful of movies they’ve decided to honor this year. As usual, all nominations came from a select, certain group of movies in the long list that came out during 2010. If you didn’t see The Social Network, The King’s Speech, The Fighter, Black Swan or True Grit, the Oscars wanted you to feel like they’re absolutely can’t-miss films.

But, the award show did offer more than the usual back-patting the actors give themselves once a year.

“Oh my gosh, you’re all real…this is all happening,” Anne Hathaway grinned from the stage as the smoke cleared. Her diamond-covered white gown was a perfect choice for the opening monologue, which was peppered with jokes about James Franco’s nomination and Hathaway’s lack of one (“it used to be, you get naked, you get nominated…not any more”).

Video: Anne Hathaway, James Franco Perform Grease Duet

We’re not sure what Oscar co-host James Franco was trying to tell us with this Tweet, we’re just glad he did. Franco, a relative newcomer to Twitter, shared this short video-only clip with his 150,000 followers earlier this week, and everyone wants to know why.

In the video, he and fellow host Anne Hathaway seem to be performing the iconic final duet from Grease, which we can only hope they’re taping for the upcoming awards broadcast on Sunday, February 27.

Oscar Hosts Not Using Ricky Gervais as a Model

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Award Shows, Specials, ABC, Gossip, Video,

“I can guarantee that if you’re looking for someone to call people out, we’re not your hosts,” Anne Hathaway recently told The Hollywood Reporter.

Her comment is a reference to the Golden Globes as hosted by Ricky Gervais. The British comedian won a lot of laughs, and raised plenty of eyebrows, with his none-too-subtle barbs aimed at those in the filmmaking industry.

“I think that humor is really difficult to pull off, and I’m not particularly adept at it. I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it,” Hathaway continued. She’ll be co-hosting the Academy Awards this year with actor James Franco. In the video above, the pair explain how they happened to be paired up as hosts for the event.

Anne Hathaway and Glee: Chris Colfer’s Dream Come True

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Music, Prime Time, FOX, Spoilers, Video,

It’s pretty hard to say no to a star when they’re holding a Golden Globe in their hand. Just ask Glee’s Chris Colfer.

Weeks ago, the man behind the Kurt told reporters that he’d like to have Anne Hathaway on the show -- and now, he’s getting his wish.

Hathway caught up to Glee writer/creator Ryan Murphy during Sunday’s Golden Globe celebration, and he’s confirmed that she will be appearing in at least one episode of the series. Previously, Colfer said Hathaway wanted to play his lesbian aunt.

We're convinced she'll nail it, but it's time to ask an important question: can she sing? Watch the video above to hear Murphy's comments.

Golden Globe statues

For the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards, NBC recruited funnyman to host the ceremony for the second year in a row. But will Gervais be the only name making a return appearance at the microphone tonight?

Last year, Michael C. Hall, Alec Baldwin, Julianna Margulies and Toni Collette nabbed acting wins in the Television category. Could we see repeat victories for all four nominees?

At the 2010 event, Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart) bested Colin Firth (A Single Man) for Best Actor in a Drama. Will this be the year that Colin Firth (The King's Speech) takes the statue from Bridges (True Grit)?

Follow our live coverage after the jump and get all of the answers to the above questions and more!
