James Franco talks murder with an Oscar

James Franco looks at Oscar award and sees a murder weapon.

The sexy actor, who is co-hosting the awards and is also nominated for Best Actor, was surprised by just how heavy the award itself was.

“It’s really heavy,” James said.

“I don’t know if it has happened in any movie but you could do a great murder scene with one of those things!”

James recently confessed that he is nervous about hosting the awards.

“I’m the most nervous I have ever been,” he said. “I think it’s actually worse than when I had to give a presentation in my class at Yale.”

“I had to write a paper and then give a conference style presentation about it to my classmates and that was the most terrified I have ever been until now.”
