In an attempt to bring in a more youthful audience the Academy Awards will be hosted by Anne Hathaway and James Franco.
It's expected that James Franco will be nominated for his role in 127 Hours which will add him to a list of very few hosts who were also nominees.
The same can also be said about Anne Hathaway and her role in Love & Other Drugs, but her nominations is considered a long shot.
Some are curious with the choice since this announcement came before the nominations it might skew the voting process a bit. Though it's unclear whether it will work in favor of the actors or not.
Either way we can be certain that the Academy will take full advantage of Anne Hathaway's singing chops and stage presence will be put into good use as well as James Franco's sense of humor and suave.
The Oscars will be held February 27th.
