James Franco and Anne Hathaway are hosting, but, as expected, Hollywood’s biggest night will be surging with starpower.
Jeff Bridges, who won the Best Actor award last year for “Crazy Heart” and is nominated in that category again this year for “True Grit,” will be presenting this year’s Best Actress award.
Sandra Bullock, who won Best Actress last year for her performance in “The Blind Side,” will be handing out the Best Actor award to Bridges, “The King’s Speech’s” Colin Firth, “Biutiful’s” Javier Bardem, Oscar host Franco for “127 Hours,” or “The Social Network’s” Jesse Eisenberg.
