If you haven’t seen, ABC has been pimping out the below Oscar promo videos pretty hard lately. Playing up to the “You’re Invited” tagline, which, incidentally, is the first time in its 83 year history that the Oscars has actually had a tagline, the spots show the “behind the scenes” prep going on as Anne Hathaway and best actor nominee James Franco get ready to host the show in just over 2 weeks.
Personally, I think these are great attempt to inject a little bit of both Hathaway and Franco’s personality into the hosting gigs. Who doesn’t love a good thwarted wardrobe malfunction?
What do you think of the promos and the tag line? Do these make you any more likely to tune into the telecast, even just to see how the opening goes? Do tell!
