Oscar Hosts 2011

In years past the Oscar’s have made a considerable effort at trying to attract a younger crowd.  The cast of Twilight and Miley Cyrus have been on hand at past ceremonies to try and reach that fan base.

It seems like their next stunt will continue that effort.  It was just released that James Franco and Anne Hathaway were offered the hosting gig for this upcoming Oscar’s.   Don’t get me wrong I love their work but hosting does not seem like the right position for them.  What happen to comedians hosting.  I remember laughing with Billy Crystal as he made harmless jokes about celebrities.  Bring Ellen back! Her show is bigger then ever and she would pimp the show for months.

It also seems strange that James Franco was chosen considering he is a potential nominee.  His work in 127 Hours has been earning major press and could land him his first nomination.  Can the host win?

Well have to watch as this story continues.
