The Oscars Are Going To Be REALLY Different This Year!

Anne And Franco Hosting Is A Big Deal

So, we told you guys about the change in the envelopes this year at the Oscars, but it seems like that isn't the only major change to happen to the show.

The Academy Awards really seems like it's gettin' a reboot!

First and foremost, the best news of the changes has just gotta be the death of the montage. Last year they did a montage in dedication to horror movies, which was fine and all, but montages seem like they make the entire show just drag on. We're DEF glad for that.

Another good one is that there is a male and female host, and they're young!

About having a male and female host:

"There has never been a male-female duo who physically shared the same Oscar stage in the history of the broadcasts. Although plenty of actresses have shared emcee duties, they've all been part of tag-team groups of three- or four-host combos. Other opposite-sex hosts have been part of bicoastal telecasts — with one in New York and one in Los Angeles. So having a male-female duo interacting in person would be a genuine first."

We really are looking forward to James Franco's shenanigans and Anne Hathaway's attempts to reel him in!

Though, she'll probably end up being on the same level as him! Should be fab!

They're also bringing back the performances of nominated song, which is great, and also doing away with the relatively new addition of past winners talking about present nominees.

The testimonials made the show seem long as well, so we aren't upset they're gone!

Other things to change include having "Mominees" or the moms of nominees to live tweet the show, having a choir of children from NYC sing Over The Rainbow, and a brand new virtual reality set.

The set will rely on projections instead of tangible decorations, allowing the show to change style on the fly.

Sounds great to us!

Good luck, James and Anne!!

    What I liked about the Oscars was that it always maintained a sense of tradition from when it began in 1929. I don't think they need to change anything!!

    Change is progress!! I'm actually quite excited for this years Academy Awards. This could turn into a great success or end up a complete mess…

    I'm surprised that you didn't mention that the choir of children actually is the P.S.22 Chorus! You post about them so much, and Anne Hathaway even came to SI to surprise them and tell them they would be performing.

    Thank god they're taking out that past oscar winners yapping about the nominees. So cheesy. Love that they're bringing back the performances for the best original song.

    Those two are going to ruin the Oscars. They are actors, not comedians. They only know how to read lines. The commercials look stupid and forced. Why are they trying so hard to make us believe it's going to be fabulous??? I'm going to record it and fast-forward through the commentary.

    not going to watch it anyway, those two are so overrated…
