In a big shift, it looks like the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has moved away from its more mature hosts and instead has chosen these hot young stars!

It looks like the Oscars are definitely trying to skew young this year! Deadline reports, “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.” This is going to be one sexy Oscar telecast!

In addition to hosting there is a very good chance James and Anne could find themselves nominees, him for 127 Hours and her for Love and Other Drugs!

Anne made a memorable appearance during the 2008 awards when she danced and sang with host Hugh Jackman during the show’s opening number.

Given what amazing dramatic AND comedic actors these two are, not to mention Anne’s singing, this seems like a perfect choice and an incredibly smart move by the Academy. What do you think HollywoodLifers?
