Hosted: (once) 2011
When James Franco and Anne Hathaway were announced as the hosts of 2011 Academy Awards, there was much discussion over whether the young stars could pull it off. Unfortunately they fell short of the task, with critics dubbing the show a "disaster".

Not even Franco's random drag act could save the show and it seems unlikely that the pair will ever reprise their hosting duties.
