Franco, Hathaway, and The Oscar

New TV spots for the Oscars prove that actors James Franco and Anne Hathaway should be a great hosting duo.

Back in November when it was announced that James Franco (127 Hours) and Anne Hathaway (Love & Other Drugs) would host this year’s Oscar telecast, I was a little skeptical about the choice.  Last year brought us Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin pairing up to host, and while they made it work, there’s still an issue with co-hosting.  Two people struggle to decide when it’s the other person’s turn to speak, creating a sense of forced, awkward conversation between the two of them.

All of my skepticism immediately vanished within the past few days, though, when I stumbled across some new TV spots featuring Franco and Hathaway preparing for their hosting duty.  Now the only thing I can really express is how excited I am to see what these two have to deliver on February 27.

While I knew Franco and Hathaway are  young, likable actors — one of the primary reasons they were most likely chosen to host — I had nearly forgotten how funny they can be! I f the simple jokes and riffs presented in these TV spots — including Franco thwarting Hathaway’s “wardrobe malfunction” — are any insight to the kind of humor these two are going to bring to their hosting, then count me in.
