Anne Hathaway: 'Oscars response was awful'

Photobucket

Anne Hathaway has thanked supporters who helped her overcome the "awful" reviews of her Oscars hosting stint with James Franco.

The Devil Wears Prada actress teamed up with Franco to oversee the 83rd Academy Awards ceremony in February, but the young double-act was universally panned by critics for lacking charisma and authority.

Speaking on Thursday's edition of The Today Show, Hathaway despaired to host Matt Lauer: "They said we were the worst show ever, I think that qualifies as tough.

"There was the critical reaction, which was awful. Then there are the people who have been coming up to me since then who stop and say, 'I thought it was fantastic. I watched it with my family and we were entertained'. I am very grateful to those people."

Hathaway also admitted that she was undecided about whether she would accept a second hosting offer from the Academy, stating: "Why not? I don't know. Maybe. Perhaps. No."

Hathaway and Franco were previously blasted by four-time Oscars host Whoopi Goldberg for failing to take charge of proceedings.

Hathaway claimed in March that she "never expected" to be awarded control of the Academy Awards.
