Video: James Franco and Anne Hathaway Train for the Oscars

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

In these weeks leading up to the Oscars, many a conversation throughout our fair city has posed the same query about this year's hosts, Anne Hathaway and James Franco: "Aren't the Oscar hosts supposed to be funny?"

And indeed, we have come to expect some level of humor from emcees of the esteemed awards. But lest you've forgotten Franco's hilarious turn in "Pineapple Express," or Hathaway's...well, Hathaway's considerable charm, we give you this, the duo's official Oscar-training video.
