Report: James Franco and Anne Hathaway to Host Oscars

Deadline Hollywood's Nikke Finke reports: Franco_hathaway

"I've just learned that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has asked James Franco and Anne Hathaway to host the Academy Awards, and it "looks like" both young stars have accepted the offer. There is always the chance that one or both of them might back out because of prior commitments and other concerns. But my sources say the host announcement could be made as soon as this week."
