It looks like the Academy is trying to bring in the younger viewer audience.
It was just announced this morning that James Franco and Anne Hathaway will be co-hosting this year's Oscars!
"James Franco and Anne Hathaway personify the next generation of Hollywood icons- fresh, exciting and multi-talented. We hope to create an Oscar broadcast that will both showcase their incredible talents and entertain the world on February 27," said producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer. "We are completely thrilled that James and Anne will be joining forces with our brilliant creative team to do just that."
We know both are great dramatic actors, but they are also great comedy actors. (Have you seen Pineapple Express and Anne's recent hosting gig on SNL?) We can't wait to see what they do on Oscar night.
James can currently be seen in 127 Hours and Anne can be seen in Love and Other Drugs. Both are also rumored to be in the running for nominations for these roles.
Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2010 will be presented on Sunday, February 27, 2011, at the Kodak Theatre.
