See Young Hollywood is important.  
From E!Online:

Did Pattinson and Efron Really Save the Oscars? Fans of Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Kate Winslet, among others, say, "Are you outta your mind?" The numbers, however, suggest the two tween gods sure didn't hurt. The show's ratings among teens 12-17 and kids 2-11 zoomed, up 25 percent and 33 percent, respectively, from last year, ABC said, citing Nielsen stats.

Of course they don't mention the 18+ demos, but I'd not be surprised to see upswing there too do to the heartthrobs.

I think that anyone who thinks Hollywood can just go along bringing the same old, same old plots mixed with busted ass faces like Tom Cruise is realizing that I, along with apparently hundreds of thousands of others, do not give a fuck about those movies.

We want fresh stories meant for us and along with that we need fresh hot new faces. And Zef, Shia, Franco (and fine, whatever, rpattzy too) are it. And you know what, we don't even have to choose between them.

Rpattzy is, well I don't know what he is yet, but Franco is versatile comedy/sexy/drama hotness, Shia is rough and tumble handsome bad boy and Zefron is bringing the retro cool elegance back. Swear to God, there is not a word invented yet to describe how classy zefron is.

To the people who say rpattzy and Zefron don't belong at the Oscars: you may be right, but not for the reasons you think. You think it is because they are untalented but that is false... they are talented. The real and bigger problem at play here is that we haven't given them a chance to belong yet. So tally ho, Hollywood, make it happen or suffer the consequences.

/rant and step off soap box (lol).

ETA: New Line/WB... now would be a good time to take up the torch for 17 Again promo. Zefron's Oscar appearance has provided a nice boost so run with it! Besides I'm tired of all the stupid Hannah Montana promo, I need Zef pretties instead.

Okay not bashing here, but I think the fact that Zac was at the Oscars/performing with V reminded everyone that he was the kid from HSM. I'd like to see him do some events by himself because it seems like when he takes V it turns into the Zanessa media circus and then it takes the focus off him and his career.

Props for him/them for interviewing seperately though. I was just disappointed we only got one question about his upcoming projects. Though it is the Oscars and you take someone so blah. idk, rambling. lol.

Yeah, I don't think they asked many people about upcoming projects so I wasn't too upset cause it wasn't abnormal, but it would have been nice to get some plugs in and he missed a perfect opportunity in one of the videos once too.

I think that to be able to perform was an amazing experience, but if they were to have done hsm stuff, i wish that it could have been more involved... you know, showed off the choreography and stuff, to validate their presence more.

TBH, I really wish fate/timing would have made it possible to have something from Footloose ready for this. That would have been a more interesting medley... you know of upcoming musicals, not just old ones.

And I do worry a lot because it feels like it is becoming too Zanessa in the media right now and not enough Zac and Vanessa separately. I don't know/care what it means to her career, but I do think, to paraphrase what he has said many times, it distracts from his career.

Shockingly, lol, I wish they had done something from HSM3 too. CIHTD was really amazing in terms of choreography and I think would have showcased Zac's abilities way more then the medley they came up with did. Because it just seemed so random that they were there and I felt some secondhand embarrassment for Zac because like the E! presenters were all like, "What the heck are they doing here?" during the preshow and I'm sure there were some of those same opinions held by the other actors and actresses as well. Now we know Zac deserved to be there because he's amazing lol, but I wish a better job had been done of showcasing that.

Interesting thoughts about Footloose, I hadn't thought about that. I was hoping this would open up HS2 questions because its a musical and all that, and also because I'm dying to hear about it lol.

Yeah I worry about the Zanessa circus overshadowing Zac's career right now too. Honestly I think it helps Vanessa's career because it keeps her in the spotlight, she's not doing a whole lot of projects. And whatever, good for her, but it worries me for Zac because he's said so much that he doesn't want to just be a celebrity, and I don't want him just being viewed as half of Zanessa.

Zac is a smart guy though and I hope he's able to see what is going on with that and that he's getting good advice from his team. I think once he starts working on another project we'll see the focus shift more to him again. Hopefully.
