    FRANCO AND HATHAWAY WILL HOST THE 83rd ACADEMY AWARDS


    This piece of news has just came in. In one of the most intriguing move, the academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have announced that James Franco (the star of 127 Hours) and Anne Hathaway (the star of Love and Other Drugs) will co-host the upcoming Academy Awards. Well, looks like the Oscar season is just looming closer and closer now. Expect more Oscar contender titles to be revealed pretty soon.

    While it seems that the partnership of James Franco and Anne Hathaway will definitely something interesting to look for and while I have no problem to see some young guns taking over the hosting of the prestigious award, there are now some speculation that this move is an attempt to boost the Oscar ratings.

    Both stars have movies coming out for possible Oscar consideration. Franco stars in Danny Boyle's 127 Hours which will have late release in March, while Hathaway's Love and Other Drugs may have not scooped much box office receipt over the weekend but many agreed that both stars have some short to rake up some nominations.

    The Academy Awards may not be the only thing they will be working on together. Ridley Scott's planned Aliens prequel has both stars been scouted for some roles. Well, we hope this couple, or not, will make the next Oscar something to look for. Remember Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin last year? That was history.
