    layla Says:

    i agree, why are you promoting zac and vanessa’s appearance so much? every time you hear somebody new is going to be there, you also throw in a pic of zanessa.

    and i agree with 7. what a joke.

    i don’t know why you guys keep complaining about zac and vanessa being there. to me its a good thing. you can’t honestly say that the oscars are an exciting award show. this allows the younger audience to watch the awards which they seriously need. They’re old and stuffy, and they need to involve younger up-and-coming actors.

    Suzie Says:

    I agree with #8. Zac and Vanessa were in one successful movie (and it’s sequel). They really aren’t known for anything else up to this point, just for being some teenybopper magnets. They are far from academy awards “worthy.”

    me Says:

    wow, I didn’t know the oscars had becoming a tween event. as if it wasn’t going downhill already!

    ladysdsandiego Says:

    uh #13 suzie it wasn’t just the sequel that was successul. it was also the first one too and the second one. and of course they’re just known for that movie only. they’re still in the beginning stages of their career. everybody starts off somewhere.

    zanessa suporter Says:

    yeah i agree with
    i am probably only watching cause of zanessa
    i dont know i will see.

    Kay Says:

    You and vanessajonas are only watching because you both are teenyboppers.

    Suzie, Leo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt were teenybopper magnets not that long ago. GIve it a rest. They’re just doing an opening number, since they CAN sing and dance. Most actors can’t. I say, give them a chance. Everyone has to start somewhere. Heck, Ann Hathaway was a DISNEY girl too.

    #17 Kay.
    not everybody who likes zac, vanessa, and high school muscial is a teenybopper.

    i’m 22 and i love the movie and zanessa. so do A LOT of other people i know.

    somebody Says:

    Anne is a human treasure. I cherish and adore her.

    viewer Says:

    Well I think it will be an interesting opening. I’ve heard them all sing, and I’m very excited!

    suzy Says:

    I love Vanessa and can’t wait for her to show her live performance skills as she grew up doing theatre.

    bettybaby Says:

    go sox…….

    i agree with you completely. all actors start somewhere and anne was a disney star as well.

    besides these two have done more than ‘just HSM,’ but whatever people with these harsh opinions don’t want to be swayed anyway….

    given the line up, this could be a tribute to the musical genre, as everyone announced thus far not only has experience in that genre but also some have been connected to SUCCESSFUL musicals.

    zac was in HS as well, and little old HSM3 made hundreds of millions at the box office, as did HS.

    so i’m looking forward for the to have the opportunity to show everyone what they are capable of.

    this is huge for them, and i wish them the best of luck!!!!!!!!

    go Zac and Vanessa!

    but then again, another reason JJ is putting Zac and Vanessa’s name in the posts about the oscar coverage is b/c it gets him hits. a lot of hits………

    to #23 Says:

    Oh really? What exactly she’s done? I guess Macbeth, Amlet or something lighter like Carousel and The Phantom of the Opera? Perhaps Lorca’s Blood Wedding? Maybe she even is a member of the Royal National Theatre of London and a close friend & partner of Ian McKellen. What about Greek plays? Did Vanessa eventually play Medea or not? Please inform me! I’m so curious…
