This just in...: Anne Hathaway and James Franco to host Oscars
Next year's Academy Awards will have some unusually dewy hosts: James Franco and Anne Hathaway. In recent years the gig has typically gone to grizzled vets like Steve Martin, Whoopi Goldberg or Jon Stewart. In tapping Franco, 32, and Hathaway, 28, it appears the Oscars will have their youngest hosts since Diana Ross did honors in 1974 at age 30. Also: With Franco likely to get a Best Actor nomination for "127 Hours," the first time in years that a host has been in contention for a trophy. (Okay, looks like Michael Caine was a nominee when he co-hosted the 1973 broadcast. Let us know if you can think of any others.)
Updated: Lisa de Moraes predicts that Hathaway and Franco will bomb.
