Thebignightforcinema, The 83rd edition of the Oscars, wasa big bore with even more boring hosts – James Franco and Anne Hathaway. The show was very predictable and perhaps Tom Hooper’s win was as shocking as it got.

Two very unorthodox presenters have been selected to be co-hosts of the 83rd ceremony on Feb. 27 – James Franco and Anne Hathaway will be running the show at the next Academy Awards.
James Franco is a fine actor but can he host? Anne Hathaway is surprisingly a fantastic entertainer who showed her chops at last year’s Oscars and The Tony’s.
The announcement creates the prospect that one or both hosts might also be nominees. Franco is considered a solid best-actor prospect for the survival drama “127 Hours,” while Hathaway has a chance for a best-actress slot for the romance “Love & Other Drugs.”
Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer, producers of the Oscar telecast, said it’s not unprecedented for Oscar hosts also to be nominees.
It’s the second-straight year the Oscars have tapped a pair of actors as hosts. Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin teamed up as hosts last time.
Anne Hathaway will go over the rainbow for the Weinstein Co.
The New York minimajor confirmed Monday that it has attached the “Rachel Getting Married” star to its Judy Garland biopic “Get Happy.”
The project, which has not yet signed a writer or director, will be based on Gerald Clarke’s biography of the same name, which TWC recently optioned. Clarke draws on numerous real-life sources to tell the life story of Garland, who began singing and acting as a toddler and continued doing so all the way through her premature death at the age of 47.
Garland led a life filled with talent but also tumult, starring and singing in a host of studio musicals and other pictures, as well as giving iconic performances on stages in New York and London. She also struggled with addiction and endured a series of relationship dramas.
Hathaway also began her career at a young age, starring in the tween franchise “The Princess Diaries.” In the past few years she has graduated to more adult roles, playing a former addict in “Rachel Getting Married,” which earned her a best actress Oscar nom.
While she has little musical experience on the screen, Hathaway caught viewers’ attention with a musical number she and host Hugh Jackman performed at the 2009 Academy Awards, though the pic’s producers will have to resolve the question of height: Garland was barely 5′, while Hathaway stands about 5′ 8″.
