Oscars 2011, A Big Fail?

After watching the highly anticipated Academy Awards Show last night, I was left a bit confused and underwhelmed. I can’t remember the last time I watched the Oscars and didn’t wish for Billy Crystal or Steve Martin to be the hosts for the evening. Anne Hathaway and James Franco were appointed the job of being the hosts for the night to bring in some life and lets say youth to the show and sadly they did not deliver.
