News__ Fresh Faces of Hollywood

| By

Out with the old and in with the new, talented and super hot. This year's 83rd Academy Awards will be hosted by Anne Hathaway and James Franco. According to a press release, Analyzes Deadline columnist, Pete Hammond stated:

"Part of the reason the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences feels comfortable going with these two is that both James Franco and Anne Hathaway have both very successfully hosted Saturday Night Live. And they looked at that and felt these young actors could work in front of a live audience which is why in the past the Academy has gone to so many stand-up comedians. And, of course, the other factor is that they really 'young up' the Oscars this year. It's an interesting choice and certainly unexpected and bold."

This will be Hathaway's fifth appearance at the Oscars and it's number two for Franco. Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2010 will be presented on Sunday, February 27, 2011, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and televised live on the ABC Television Network. We'll be sitting front row at our televisions screaming out nominations for the best and worst dressed while waiting to see who breaks down and balls during their acceptance speech.

    I really don’t understand the appeal, of either of these choices. James Franco is a boring actor which will likely lead to him being a boring host. Anne Hathaway is barely passable as eye candy; and she is, also, a boring actor. Boring+boring will result in awkward, witless banter; and will leave everybody wishing they had just let James Earl Jones read off a list, of all the winners rather than bother with what will end up being an Oscar equivalent of an Ambien pill.

    Ha! Nice comparison. If Jack Nicholson was a pharmaceutical what kind would he be?
