Anne Hathaway: Oscars Hosting Gig Looked 'Slightly Manic'

Anne Hathaway takes her dog Esmeralda for a walk with a pal on Sunday afternoon (November 18) in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The 30-year-old actress recently chatted with The Hollywood Reporter about her co-hosting gig at the 2011 Academy Awards.

“I was just shooting energy to the back [of the house]. It was like a big party. It was great,” Anne said. “I think it looked slightly manic and hyper cheerleadery on screen… Whether or not it was an actual failure, it was perceived as a massive failure.”

    She’s likeable yet annoying at the same time. She’s the studios’ attempt at reviving “old Hollywood”/Audrey Hepburn-style HW.

    Ugly girl. Her eyes, nose & mouth are too big for her small head.

    yeah, stick to the funny hosts of the oscars, pushing the limits for laughs, rattling the stars, thats a good host, not some dressed up poser trying to be funny person who are not really that big of a star anyway and it just falls flat
    and stop with the music, awful music
    good thing they long ago stopped the geriatrics parade of ‘who?’
    next thing to stop is the recently dead parade, honor the dead som other way, oscars is supposed to be fun and focus on the award recipients

    Anne came across as a narcissist hosting the Oscars. It was karma for Katie Holmes. Her first Katie skit was funny but the second was unnecessary and rather heartless so soon after Katie’s divorce.

    She has a mean streak imitating Katie.

    @CJ: James Franco. :) And I completely agree.

    Not her biggest fan, but girlfriend is looking seriously chic. Love the buffalo plaid/pea coat combo.

    @CJ: We just have to disagree, because some people actually enjoyed James Franco’s performance and coming from Anne’s own mouth she wasn’t great either, she has now accepted this. So, since it took TWO people to host that night, If James was poor, then so was Anne. Again, I thought they were both great and at least tried. Billy Crystal performance got mixed reviews a year later. Whilst, Billy was hosting some tweets suggested they wanted in particular James back.

    Anyway, I hate all this attack on James Franco, when everyone knows that the Oscars is fixed and bullsh*t anyway. In fact, check out Sir Anthony Hopkins comments recently. It’s time to move on..

    Out of her and Franco, she definitely came out of it unscathed. People accepted that she at least tried.

    Why are we still talking about this? They were give crappy material and they aren’t hosts. They tried and it didn’t work. It was almost 2 years ago..move on!
