After all the drama and controversy surrounding the first host-less Academy Awards in 30 years, Anne Hathaway is here to remind us that it might not be so bad. 

The actress, 36, co-hosted the 2011 Oscars with James Franco, in what became one of the most awkward and infamous moments in the award show’s now-91 year history. Critics complained Franco looked half-asleep, leaving Hathaway to overcompensate with her own enthusiasm.

“No matter what happens with today’s show, just remember, it’s already been worse,” she wrote. “Happy Oscars!” 

This isn’t the first time Hathaway has acknowledged her disappointment in the hosting gig. In a 2015 interview with The New York Times Magazine, she gave a word of advice to the next Oscars host, Neil Patrick Harris.

“Do the opposite of what I did, and you’ll be fine,” she joked. “He’ll be great.”
