Flick Chick ( a.k.a. Mrs James Franco) is in OSCAR heaven right now!
It has been just announced that James Franco ( a.k.a sexiest, super-smart scruffmeister who has been Flick Chick’s massive crush since Freaks and Geeks) and Anne Hathaway ( a.k.a Luckiest Girl in the world!) will be taking over the reigns from 2010′s Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin to host Tinseltown’s glitziest and arguably most important night next year!!!
From the Los Angeles Times: With respective ages of 32 and 28, the two actors are among the youngest hosts for the iconic award show. While both are accomplished, adventurous and well-regarded actors, their primary job qualification for hosting a live variety show is their experience toplining “SNL.”
“We’re not going to require them to perform six to eight skits playing different characters live in front of an audience, but if you can handle ‘Saturday Night Live,’ then that’s a great indication of your readiness as an Oscar host,” says Bruce Cohen, co-producer with Don Mischer of the show, which will air Feb. 27.
With Franco and Hathaway both getting high marks for their performances this year — Franco a shoo-in for a Best Actor Nom himself in 127 Hours, Hathaway (a previous nominee for Rachel Getting Married) in the recent hit Love & Other Drugs — the film academy reached out to movie stars that are ascending in their career. The academy is trying everything to lure a younger audience — and Franco and Hathaway are a key part of that plan.
So tell me dear film fans, do you think that James and Anne are good choices? Will YOU tune in to the Academy Awards come Feb next year?
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE JAMES FRANCO and HIS CRAZY ECLECTIC CAREER… so I am all TEAM FRANCO!!! But what do YOU think?
Leave me a message and let’s talk about it! Till then, always remember to Snap Crackle and POPcorn!
You know you love me,
Your Flick Chick
