Oscar telecast producers Bruce Cohen and Don Muscher stated, “James Franco and Anne Hathaway personify the next generation of Hollywood icons – fresh, exciting and multi-talented.”

Franco recently earned raves for his latest movie, 127 Hours, where he plays Aron Ralston, a man who gets his arm stuck under a boulder and cuts a piece of it off. Franco’s other films include Eat, Pray, Love and Pineapple Express.

Hathaway’s latest film, Love and Other Drugs, is also getting hype. Two years ago, Hathaway performed a musical number with Hugh Jackman when he hosted the Oscars.

Catch the 83rd annual Oscars on ABC on February 27.

A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at FabulousBuzz.com. Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
