Hathaway, Franco to host 83rd Oscars

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.
