James Franco pokes fun at Oscars hosting disaster

James Franco poked fun at himself and his Oscars hosting debacle as he opened the MTV Movie Awards with host Rebel Wilson on Sunday night (14Apr13).

The Oz: The Great & powerful actor pretended he had trekked to the comedienne's native Australia - "the real Oz" - and found Wilson sitting outside a tent in the outback, where he told her she had been "chosen" to host the awards show.


Recalling his own Oscars night disaster when he co-hosted the Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway, he joked, "Hosting is a blast. You are not gonna regret it for a second... Trust me, nobody will ever say anything bad about you. It'll be totally fun, cool, yes."


Wilson then stepped into an Iron Man suit Franco called Iron Man-gina and 'jetted off' to the Sony Pictures lot in Los Angeles for the ceremony, where she fell from the rafters and announced, "I don't know if I can do this", before breaking into song and performing a parody of Eminem's Lose Yourself and a mash-up of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' Thrift Shop and Alicia Keys' Girl on Fire.
