Anne Hathaway and James Franco? Here Are 5 Pairs Better Suited to Host the Oscars.
Today, Anne Hathaway and James Franco were named the hosts of this year's Academy Awards. The Daily News reports that Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer (the producers of the Oscars) said, "James Franco and Anne Hathaway personify the next generation of Hollywood icons -- fresh, exciting, and multi-talented." They also personify a combined age of 60. Here are 5 pairs that we'd choose over FrancAway.

John Stewart and Steven Colbert
Why the pair makes sense: Their Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear was an unprecedented success. Maybe the political duo could take their much needed viral buzz to the Oscar telecast and inject some life into it. Stewart hosted a good ceremony in 2007 and Colbert is never afraid to roast people sitting in the audience -- no matter who the person is.
Why they're better than FrancAway: Not only are they a lot funnier, Stewart and Colbert have amazing chemistry.
