Nomination Reaction: James Franco

Best Actor, '127 Hours'

James Franco is facing double duty on Oscar night, as a lead actor nominee for “127 Hours” and as co-host of the kudocast with Anne Hathaway. But he welcomes the distraction.

“I’m actually really excited to be hosting because it will take my mind off all the awards stuff even though I will probably be dripping with sweat from head to toe the whole show from the nerves,” Franco said.
