Anne Hathaway and James Franco are shaping up to be the un-cola of Oscar hosts, and may be just as refreshing after Ricky Gervais’s off-key performance at the Golden Globe Awards.
They Oscars haven’t had a really good host since the days of Johnny Carson, although a few, like Steve Martin have come close. But this year the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, is trying something different, again.
In a couple of preview spots, Hathaway and Franco have been featured in hilarious remakes of films such as “Evita” and “Grease.”
It’s unclear how, or even whether, the spots will figure into the show, but they should. In the mash up below, Hathaway segues from “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” from “Evita” to Wreckx-N-Effect’s “Rump Shaker.”
In an earlier spot, she and Franco mimicked John Travolta and Olivia Newton John in the classic “Grease” scene.
