7 Worst Awards-Show Hosts ...


As a rule, most award shows – starting with the prestigious Academy Awards to the Emmy Awards and even MTV Music Awards – do a fairly good job of hosting and presenting them. However, once in a while there comes a display of talent, or rather the lack of it, which makes the audience cringe and turn away from their TV sets. Here are the 8 worst awards-show hosts that have made organizers and viewers pray for time machines and stronger pain killers.

Although the pairing of Anne Hathaway and James Franco did very little to set the stage all a-sizzle, at least Hathaway scored over Franco thanks to her sheer beauty and perky attitude. Franco on the other hand looked like a shy teenager approaching the girl he had a crush on for a first date – hugely awkward. Everything from his presentation to his posture and even his clothes made him look awkward and uncomfortable. This is one guy who isn’t going to get another shot at doing this for sure.
