The first on-air promo with Oscar hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway has arrived, and it shows the two of them “preparing for every possible Oscar emergency.” The highlight, obviously, is when he tackles her as she begins to have a wardrobe malfunction. Watch it below. Does it get you excited for their hosting gig? It did me. I’m curious what their playful energy will yield. And I’m suddenly hoping they continue the traditional bit of placing the host(s) in the Best Picture nominees. (Which would be easy for 127 Hours.) How would The Social Network have looked if Franco had starred in it? How would Black Swan have been different had it been Hathaway instead of Natalie Portman? I’m genuinely curious. I’d love to see them give us an actual taste of it before hitting us with the comedic twist. What’s your dream bit for these two now? If you need inspiration, here’s your full list of Oscar nominees.
