James Franco and Anne Hathaway are hosting the Oscars next year. So, why’s it such a big deal? Why do people care? And why is it all over the news? First of all, it’s a big deal because James and Anne are Young Hollywood who are newly into their careers and could bring a younger-appeal to a notoriously uptight ceremony. People care because they’re fans of Anne and James, who have both proven their capabilities of acting ranges. Finally, it’s all over the news because Anne and James are both in the running to be nominated this year.
Again, why is that a big deal? Well, people are saying that this could be a ploy to get these two to win the award for Best Actor and Actress. France is getting rave reviews for 127 Hours and Anne is a dark horse for Love & Other Drugs. So, in other words, people will do anything to have something to complain about. Jesus, cry about it, it’s all a campaign game anyway. No one really “wins” the award because they deserve it, they win it because they’ve campaigned for it and it’s their turn, etc.
I read an article somewhere that said regardless of who deserves it, Annette Bening will probably win for The Kids Are All Right because she’s due. Yes, this was really stated. She’s due. Right. I hear Natalie Portman will blow us away in Black Swan and she’s the one who deserves it. But now, because Anne is hosting, could people be more inclined to vote for her? Probably not… but, if it sparks some sort of controversy, you know they’ll be all over talking shit about it. let the race begin…
