Franco and Hathaway to host Oscars

30 November 2010, 08:49

Los Angeles - James Franco and Anne Hathaway will be running the show at the next Academy Awards.

Oscar organisers said on Monday that Franco and Hathaway will be co-hosts of the 83rd ceremony on February 27.

The announcement creates the prospect that one or both hosts might also be nominees. Franco is considered a solid best-actor prospect for the survival drama 127 Hours, while Hathaway has a chance for a best-actress slot for the romance Love & Other Drugs.

It's the second-straight year the Oscars have tapped a pair of actors as hosts. Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin teamed up as hosts last time.

The move also continues the show's departure from the traditional comedian as host, such as past masters of ceremonies Billy Crystal or David Letterman.
