Well, guys, that's a wrap! For better or for worse, the James Franco and Anne Hathaway-hosted 83rd Annual Academy Awards are officially history. Now, let's take a look back at some of the night's most noteworthy moments, shall we?
Here are our picks for the show's most memorable moments, presented in the order in which they appeared during the broadcast. Enjoy!
1) The Opening Number
The night kicked off with a parody montage featuring—who else?—the night's two hosts. Click on the headline below—or just click here—to be taken to our post on it (which includes the video).
2) Awkward Monologue, Party of Two!
After the cold open, Franco and Hathaway appeared on stage at the Kodak Theater for their monologue. It was pretty awkward, no? Again, click on the headline below—or click here—to be taken to our post on it (and to see the video).
3) Kirk Douglas Steals the Show
When Kirk Douglas came out to present the award for Supporting Actress, who knew that he'd end up providing us with possibly the night's funniest moment? To visit our post on it/to watch the video, click on the headline below (or click here).
4) Melissa Leo Is Really F*cking Excited to Win
After Melissa Leo won the Oscar for Supporting Actress for her performance in The Fighter, she got so excited that she dropped an f-bomb!
5) Anne Hathaway Hates Hugh Jackman (On Her Own)
Hathaway took a break from flanking Franco to reprise her role as the Oscars' official random Singer-in-Chief. Missing, though, was her duet partner of two years ago, Hugh Jackass—er, Jackman. Oh, also: Franco then appeared in drag.
6) The Laziest Acceptance Speech of the Night
Colleen Atwood won the Academy Award for Costume Design for her work in Alice in Wonderland. Then, she stuffed her Oscar under her armpit and cradled it like a negligent mother. Then, she read her acceptance speech.
7) And Now, Some Auto-Tune
Well, this was certainly random! Check out our post and see the video by clicking on the headline below (or, again, by clicking here).
8) These Guys Should Totally Host the Show Next Year
Who knew that Jude Law and Robert Downey, Jr. would give us more laughs during a short presentation of an award than we got from, say, Franco the entire evening? What chemistry they have, too!
9) Oh, Gwyneth...
There's not much else to say about this horrible little doozy. To watch the video via our original post, click on the headline below (or click here).
James Franco Is as Over It as We Are
Here's how Franco—who, at this point, might was well have had "no1curr" tattooed across his forehead, given how high and/or uninterested he seemed throughout the entire broadcast—and Hathaway sighed (typo but I'm leaving it) off.
And on that note... see you next year!
