News flash: Anne Hathaway and James Franco to host Oscars

Well, this is a surprise. A pair of young actors will host the Academy Awards telecast on February 27: Anne Hathaway, a former nominee currently starring in “Love and Other Drugs,” and James Franco, sure to be nominated this year for “127 Hours.” Could work; both are charming, and Hathaway did a brief song-and-dance bit with host Hugh Jackman at the 2009 ceremony that certainly won her some fans. The telecast producers describe the pair as personifying “the next generation of Hollywood icons — fresh, exciting, and multitalented.” Could be fun, particularly if Franco gets to present the Best Actor award to himself.
