Anne Hathaway and James Franco to Host Oscars
In an interesting move, the Academy has named Anne Hathaway and James Franco as the co-hosts of this years Oscars. In some ways I am excited about this because both are funny and multi-talented, they could have great chemistry, and it might attract a young crowd to watch the Oscars, which could boost ratings. However, both (particularly Franco) are Oscar contenders this year, and it might be wierd, particularly if he wins, which is very possible. Furthermore, I feel that this could be a huge publicity stunt that just doesn't quite work, or more importantly, could be a huge train wreck. either way, we now have our Oscar hosts.
