In a recent interview with New York magazine, Bruce Vilanch had told that James Franco "didn't get there" as co-host of the Academy Awards. Irked by his statement, James Franco tweeted, "bruce he let me down." Later, he posted a picture of Bruce with caption on his face: "James fucked up the Oscars. Trust me, I know comedy. I mean, come on, I write for Bette Midler!"
However, the hosts and the writers were held responsible for the recent past of Oscars show. But the aftermath has seen a new Twitter dust-up between award show writer Bruce Vilanch and actor James Franco, who was accused of being too low energy for the award show.
