83rd Annual Academy Award producer Bruce Cohen, who’s an Oscar winner himself, phoned in Friday morning to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to give us the inside scoop on the upcoming award show, hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco, as well as revealed more on the surprise in store for the “Twilight” Twihard’s will “blow people’s minds” as well!

Beginning with the opening act (no pun intended) Bruce shares James Franco and Anne Hathaway will “both be singing” adding, “Anne is an amazing singer; James-I don’t know if you’ve heard the version of the Cher song [he did], I highly recommend checking that out.”

Cohen also let on about the projection elements which he explains “allows us to take the audience to all of these different times, places, and events during the show. We have an infinite number of places we can visit…overall it’s a journey that Anne and James are going to take you through all your favorite movie moments and Oscar moments of all time.” As to why the shows taken on this route, Cohen adds “we’re delving back into the past a little more than we have done in past years…because we have Anne and James who are the youngest hosts in Oscar history and the first guy girl hosts ever”

After releasing, via a Twitter video, that there will be a surprise for all the Twihards out there, Bruce furthered “Robert, Taylor, and Kristen will not be on the show but, the next best thing is going to happen and it will blow people minds.” Although Cohen wouldn’t reveal the surprise, he did let on what it is not, including it’s “not a live element at all…not technically CGI…and not the trailer for ‘Breaking Dawn.'”

Guess we will just have to wait and tune in ourselves on Sunday, February 27th, for the live broadcast of the 83rd Annual Academy Awards on ABC at 8pm!
