Oscars 2011: The annual Academy awards presentation is a week away and ABC has released the full and final promo. The unconventional Duo of James Franco and Anne Hathaway will be hosting the show.

Anne Hathaway revealed in an interview that she and her co-host James Franco are hoping to get a few laughs but they won’t be following Ricky Gervais. “I can guarantee that if you’re looking for someone to call people out, we’re not your hosts,” Hathaway said. “I think that humor is really difficult to pull off, and I’m not particularly adept at it. I wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it. Also, I don’t mean to sound overly serious, but I am the youngest host in history and I have no business being cynical or calling anyone out. I certainly haven’t earned the right to do that.”

Hathaway said that she and Franco didn’t have to come up with the jokes for the big night. “The show was pretty much laid out when we were asked. We were given a presentation. So we knew the concept behind the show and what the moving parts would be. We’re not writing the jokes or the scenarios but we are collaborating with the writers to figure out what fits,” Hathaway said.

Hathaway got her the best advice about hosting the show is from Alec Baldwin. She said “When I ran into him a couple weeks ago he said, ‘the thing to remember is, it’s not about you.’”

People have their favorites for Oscars and predictions are in full high! The biggest film awards of the world is only a week away.
