It was a promising start. The montage was good. Alec Baldwin was good. Morgan Freeman was good. Their Billy Crystal-esque movie insertions were good. Kirk Douglas was good! More than good! So good he should have stayed! Because goddamn as the night went on, the good disappeared, only to be replaced by a spaced out James Franco who could not seem to look at the camera (do they not teach that at film school?) and a Hathaway who overcompensated for her partner’s indifference by trying way too hard. Full Story

And you can see him on Broadway too. My friends are always rolling their eyes when I go off about my schedule. I can be insufferably martyr-y about having two jobs, sometimes three, and not sleeping much. As such, I can “oh yeah?” just about anyone when it comes to busy-ness. But not James Franco. Full Story

Have you seen the new Oscar promo with Anne Hathaway and James Franco? I rather like it. A lot. I like their expressions at the beginning when they bump fists, especially his, like all Jersey Shore grease roid douche and sh-t. The sweatbands around the wrists are killing me. And she looks so cute when she’s screaming to camera as he tackles her. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

James Franco is hosting the Oscars. He’s also nominated for one. And, well, he WENT TO FILM SCHOOL. Which means he’s qualified to offer his opinion on whether or not his film is better than The Social Network. Well of course it is.  Read Full Intro

Finally had a chance to watch the Newsweek Actor Roundtable. I love these videos. But they’re an investment. If you do have an hour at lunch, or at home later though, I promise it’s more worth your while than most talk show interviews. Because it’s not so much what they say, it’s what they say to each other. Full Story

James Franco hit up Rob Pruitt’s 2010 Art Awards at Webster Hall in New York last night because he WENT TO FILM SCHOOL. I WENT TO FILM SCHOOL is my new favourite, favourite reason of all time. It works in every sentence re: James Franco. Like.. Full Story

One minute acting

A lot of you have been sending me this today: the New York Times video featuring (mostly) world class actors “acting” for a minute. Let’s call this what it is, ok? It’s a little pretentious and contrived. Come on now… The black and white, the music, the self involvement disguised as art – this kind of sh-t alienates people. Full Story

This is your weekend assignment. Because who has the time during the week to spend an hour on this, even though it’s 60 minutes of pure amazingness? The Hollywood Reporter Actors’ Roundtable is embedded below. Enjoy it, maybe over breakfast on Sunday, really savour the experience. I broke it up into two parts on Wednesday night during my playlist making, loved it, but wonder if I would have even more if I hadn’t paused. Full Story
