Reactions to Franco and Hathaway as Oscar hosts – AWARDS SEASON ROUNDUP

By Sean O’Connell’s Awards Season Roundup collects insights from around the Internet on films that are running in the Oscar race.

The big topic on the Oscar beat continues to be the naming of James Franco and Anne Hathaway as co-hosts of next year’s telecast. The L.A. Times goes over previous actors who stepped in as hosts. Awards Daily does a virtual spit take before getting in line by saying, “I think … what the AMPAS tells me to think. Shutting up, sir.”
While Jeff Wells goes so far as to say James Franco’s Oscar co-hosting gig “will probably kill his shot at being a Best Actor nominee for his performance in ‘127 Hours.’ … If he’s the co-host, fine. And he’s a Best Actor nominee, fine. But you can’t do both.”

Noah Forrest, meanwhile, has ideas on how to fix the Oscars.

Scott Feinberg sits down with Justin Timberlake.

And Patrick Goldstein says Disney is wasting money and precious resources going after a Best Picture Oscar for “Toy Story 3.”
