Jon Stewart gives James Franco Oscar hosting advice, plus new promo pic

Jan. 26, 2011by:

There you have it folks, this year's Oscar hosts, one is nominated for Best Actor, the other is Catwoman. Please, please, please have her come out in costume at least once. Yeah, that won't happen.

Anyway, besides posing for this promo pic, James Franco stopped by The Daily Show last night where two-time Oscar host Jon Stewart had some advice for him.

"Let me tell you what they love. Go at it with the attitude that you're above it all. They love it. [Do it] with an ironic detachment bordering on contempt. They will eat it up."

The rest of the clip details Franco's thought process with hosting the awards while being nominated, saying he's not nervous because people don't understand why he's even hosting and expectations are low.

As much as I like Stewart on The Daily Show, I've never really liked him as Oscar host as he just seems far out of his comfort zone. I'm looking forward to seeing what Hathaway and Franco come up with, and he did say last night that there'd be a bit of song and dance.

Watch the clip with Stewart below:

Extra Tidbit: Franco also did a pretty funny bit where he got his arm stuck under the Green Room mini-fridge for the duration of the show leading up to his interview.

I'm probably one of the only people on the planet who thought Stewart was a good host. Oh, well.

I wouldn't listen to any advice Jon Stewart has to offer on hosting the Oscars. He did a terrible job.

Ya, such a bad job, in fact, that they had him back to do it again!

127 hours

Sucked balls, one of the worst turds I've seen all year. I'm a James Franco fan, but his performance doesn't even deserve to be nominated. I really hope blackswan wins, although I have yet to see the kings speech the only oscar nominated film I have yet to see so I may change my mind after seeing that.

I agree, mate. It didn't suck balls, but definitely not Oscar worthy. If it wasn't directed by Danny "Slumdog Boyle" it wouldn't have been nominated. Having said that, Franco gives a terrific performance. But yeah, NOT Oscar worthy. The flashbacks were lame-o and the message of the film all too obvious. Anyway, GO Black Swan and TS3 !

It'd be great to see Franco host AND win for his performance in 127 Hours. I'm excited for the oscars this year. It's been a good selection for movies this year.
