While it was momentarily novel that James Franco arguably the worst
awards-show host in the history of awards shows might give Rebel Wilson a tutorial on the ways of the emcee, what was with all the fat jokes? Wilson's entire opening package (from the Franco video to the Pitch Perfect reunion
) was fairly cheap humor. While Wilson gets legitimate points that her opener wasn't as all-over-the-place, overlong, and ass-covering as Seth MacFarlane's Oscars monologue
, we also were expecting more (a lot more) from her than we were from MacFarlane. Fair? Maybe not. Disappointing. Alas, yes.
