Plucked right from young Hollywood’s A-List, Anne Hathaway and James Franco are set to host the 83rd Academy Awards on February 27th. We knew Oscar had a thing for Annie—she played a starring role in Hugh Jackman’s opening skit at the 2009 awards as well—but this bold move still has us a little surprised. We’re guessing it’s an attempt to draw a younger audience, and in that case Franco and Hathaway are the perfect pair for the job. We’d love to know which other stars were up for the parts, however. Who would have ranked number one on your wish list?   –Kayla Chobotiuk
