>James Franco and Anne Hathaway to co-host Oscars

>The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has selected the hosts of the 83rd Academy Awards. And believe it or not, it’s an even sexier coupling than the MCs of the 82nd ceremony!

Former Oscar nominee Anne Hathaway and (let’s face it) future Oscar nominee James Franco will team up to host the 2011 ceremony.

Oscar telecast producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer made the announcement through a press release (which you can read in full here).

It should be noted that the combined ages of Anne Hathaway (28) James Franco (32) equal less than Steve Martin’s 65 years. He co-hosted last year’s ceremony with Alec Baldwin.

It’s no surprise that the Academy hope to draw in a younger audience with Hathaway and Franco at the helm, much like they did in 2008 with Hugh Jackman behind the wheel. What with ratings for the ceremony ever-dwindling, we will no doubt see a number of experiments over the next few years.

You hear that, Betty White? The 2012 ceremony could be yours!
