His performance of Cher's "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me" may have been scrapped from the rundown, but James Franco managed to channel his inner drag at the Oscars. The host previously was scheduled to sing the "Burlesque" theme but since the movie was not nominated and Franco's voice reportedly was "too horrible", it was scrapped.

Franco, who is no stranger to doing drag, appeared on the stage of 2011 Academy Awards wearing an unflattering pink gown and Marilyn Monroe-style wig. His partner, Anne Hathaway meanwhile took the duty as the man by wearing a tux. They gave what was called "performance comedy" in between the prize-giving.

'Last Airbender' & 'Sex and the City 2' Are Big 'Winners' at 31st Razzie Awards

February 28, 2011 01:23:54 GMT


"The Last Airbender" has been deemed the Worst Picture at the 31st Annual Razzie Awards. It saved the likes of "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" and "Sex and the City 2" from taking the biggest loser title in addition to nabbing other four kudos.

The movie adaptation of Nickelodeon's TV series landed its helmer/scribe, M. Night Shyamalan, Worst Director and Worst Screenplay awards. His aim to enhance the visual with 3-D technology was not helpful either as the film was named the Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D. "Last Airbender" actor Jackson Rathbone got Worst Supporting Actor gong, partly also for his unimpressive performance in "Eclipse".
