Ceremony information

Opting for a younger face for the ceremony, producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer chose James Franco and Anne Hathaway as co-hosts for the ceremony. Franco's nomination for Best Actor marks the first time since 1973 that an actor or actress has hosted the award ceremony in the same year that he or she was nominated for an acting award. At the 45th Academy Awards, Michael Caine co-hosted the ceremony and was nominated for Best Actor in Sleuth. The last host to win an acting award was David Niven, who won the Oscar for Best Actor in Separate Tables at the 31st Academy Awards in 1959.

Voting trends and summary
For the second consecutive year, the field of major nominees included at least one blockbuster at the American and Canadian box offices. However, only three of the nominees had grossed over $100 million before the nominations were announced, compared with five from the previous year.  The combined gross of the ten Best Picture nominees when the Oscars were announced was $1.2 billion, the second-highest ever behind 2009. The average gross was $119.3 million.
Two of the ten Best Picture nominees were among the top ten releases in box office during the nominations. At the time of the announcement of nominations on January 25, Toy Story 3 was the highest-grossing film among the Best Picture nominees with $414.9 million in domestic box office receipts.The only other top ten box office hit to receive a nomination was Inception which earned $292.5 million. Among the remaining eight nominees, True Grit was the next-highest-grossing film with $137.9 million followed by The Social Network ($95.4 million), Black Swan $83.2 million, The Fighter ($72.6 million), The King's Speech ($57.3 million), The Kids Are All Right ($20.8 million), 127 Hours ($11.2 million), and finally Winter's Bone ($6.2 million).
Of the top 50 grossing movies of the year, 55 nominations went to 15 films on the list. Only Toy Story 3 (1st), Inception (5th), How to Train Your Dragon (9th), True Grit (17th), The Social Network (29th), The Town (32nd), Black Swan (38th), and The Fighter (45th) were nominated for directing, acting, screenwriting, Best Picture or Animated Feature.
