and James Franco
are going to be hosting the Oscars on February 27th, 2011. Usually the Academy Awards are hosted by older actors, but apparently James and Anne were the perfect choice for this year, since they “personify the next generation of Hollywood icons—fresh, exciting and multi-talented.”
Anne is busy doing publicity and attending premieres for her new romantic comedy, Love and Other Drugs, which also stars Jake Gyllenhaal. Meanwhile, James’ hard core movie about a mountain climber, 127 Hours, which is based on a true store, just hit theaters as well.
Anne and Jake will definitely make a dynamic duo, especially since they’re both known for their comedic talents. Plus, Anne already had a memorable song-and-dance performance during the 2009 Academy Awards. Get ready for a great show.
