James Franco's Dream Gig: To Host Daytime Emmys?




 
Forget Broadway, thespian James Franco would love to host the 38th Annual Daytime Emmys.  The General Hospital guest star told The Hollywood Reporter:
"Maybe next, I’ll get to host the daytime Emmys," he said. "Hey, if they ask me, I might do it. I would love that."
 

Hey, if it brings in viewers, I can dig it!

That would be amazing!
1) he would bring in ratings
2) he would bring the attention to the daytime emmys.

This man clearly has love for daytime.

Someone make this happen!

I think it would be great if he were to host the Daytime Emmys...It would bring more attention to the soaps and more viewers to the Emmys.

As long as Vegas doesn't bring the stupidity from last year back to the prime-time Emmy's!

To get someone who will most certainly gets a nomination got Lead Actor at the Oscars this year and who is hosting them to show that level of interest and support to Daytime TV is really fantastic. The story lines with Franco are perhaps stupid but Mr James Franco thank you for what you are doing for Daytime TV. Most of your peers would have laughed and made fun of Daytime TV when you keep defending it. A HUGE THANK YOU.

Ditto. I don’t care for Franco the character--as aramis mentioned, the storylines for his character are completely ridiculous--but I’ve been in some deep lusty love with James since his Freaks and Geeks days. Love So I’d be happy if he hosted the Daytime Emmy’s and he respects the medium to a fault, which is what these shows need, outside support of his caliber!!! But like matealestlmo said, PLEASE let’s not make this another infomercial for Vegas and all of it’s, ahem, attractions.

I think he's clearly reaching out to the soapworld from a pinnacle of showbiz success these days. I think it shows a lot about this guy's character. It's no secret a lot of the entertainment world looks down on soaps (out of ignornance, mostly). he's wiggedy-wacked-out wacky, but I would never call that a bad thing. Rock it, James! I'm not sure what you're doing, but I not only respect it...I like it!

Didn't GH ratings drop when he appeared?

I adore James Franco! So much in fact, I rooted for Harry Osborn in the Spiderman movies even though the title sort of gives away the winner [/saracasm]. If he can bring a network in to air the Daytime Emmys, I'll have his triplets. He's a perfect advocate for Daytime. Talented as hell, yet doesn't take himself too seriously. Not to mention so darned adorkable.

*swoon*

Um MargaritavilleGirl, You need to re-read my comment: "As long as Vegas DOESN'T bring stupidity from last year's Emmy's back." I don't want it back anymore than you do! If they do, I won't be tuning in!

Hahahaha! Adorkable. I'm sure that was unintentional, but that's the best typo I've read in a long, long time! (Now, I've got to figure out a way to get family and friends to start calling me 'adorkable'!) Laughing out loud

Oh alstonboy, the things you say. But James Franco would DEFINITELY add something new and fresh to the Daytime Emmys, not to mention give them some much needed buzz.

THIS IS A HUGE MISTAKE!!

JAME SFRANCO TO HOST THE DAYTIME EMMYS? THAT IS THE BIGGEST BLUNT!
HE IS NO BIG HELP NOR DID HE HELP GETTING GENERAL HOSPITAL BIG RATINGS..
WHEN HE CAME ON THE SHOW..FRANCO MADE GH BORING AND THE RATINGS WENT DOWN REALLY LOW....THE VIEWERS DIDNT SEEM TO CARE ABOUT FRANO ON GH, THEY WOULDNT CARE TO WATCH HIM HOST THE EMMYS...AND THE EMMYS WOULD GO DOWN WITH BAD RATINGS DUE TO FRANCO..
HE MADE BE A MOVIE STAR, ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE, NYU GRAD, BUT HE IS NOTHING TO DAYTIME SHOWS...HE IS NO ELIZABETH TAYLOR!

SO HIS EGO WITH GH, MADE THE SHOW THE WORST IT EVER BEEN....
KILL THE CHARACTER, RID OF JAMES FRANCO AND GH WILL IMPROVE WITH A GOOD STORYLINE..GET RID OF JAMES FRANCO, BRENDA..ANOTHER STORY...
GH WILL IMPROVE!

Nope, adorkable wasn't a typo. James Franco has this weird mix of being an adorable hottie yet kinda goofy/dorky at the same time. Hence - adorkable. I could totally imagine him snort chuckling at something he found really funny.

Well, he is enrolled in about 12,000 degree programs. So that does kinda make him a dork (a good dork, of course, but still a dork! Party Party )

P.S-- I still admire his dedication to higher learning, and I wouldn't kick him out of MY bed for snort chuckling!!!

The Daytime Emmy Awards will have bad ratings with James Franco..just like General Hospital is the lowest rated daytime show!

I think he'd be great at hosting it! He really loves the soaps and has more knowledge abou the industry then some hosts they've had.
