Good thing Smilin’ James Franco has a couple day jobs he can stick to, because Awards Show MC is probably no longer an option. Judging from Franco’s frequently-updated Twitter, the actor was too busy taking photos and backstage videos to put any effort into, you know, hosting the Academy Awards. While Anne Hathaway was at least eager to please, Franco mostly just stood around and played with his phone. His dull SNL appearance should have been a warning, but we’re still bummed by his indifferent performance last night, and can’t think of the last time someone flopped so hard. Don’t say Letterman—the late night host’s “Oprah! Uma!” stuff topped anything Franco muttered by a mile.
