James Franco

@jamesfranco caught flack for his lackadaisical hosting job at the Oscars. He briefly feuded with Oscar writer Bruce Vilanch, posting on his now-defunct account the doctored photo that said: "James Franco [expletive] up the Oscars. Trust me, I know comedy. I mean, come on, I write for Bette Midler!" Franco later apologized.
