Hathaway deserves a Purple Heart, not an Oscar, for "Love and Other Drugs." (She showed how well she can act for a great director with Jonathan Demme's "Rachel Getting Married.') But James Franco -- drag magazine covers, "General Hospital," and all -- has been Academy all the way. At the very least this cohosting gig should keep him in the forefront of the voters' minds. Colin Firth may win the best actor Oscar for "The King's Speech" (which I haven't seen, and look forward to), but Franco has earned a shot at the prize.
