Los Angeles: James Franco has already bagged the chance to host the Academy Awards this year but the actor has set his goals beyond Oscars.

He is now looking forward to host the daytime Emmy awards.

The actor, who is a favourite to get a nomination at the Oscars for his performance in Danny Boyle`s `127 Hours`, says he would love an invite to host the award, the Hollywood Reporter said.

"Maybe next, I`ll get to host the daytime Emmys... if they ask me, I might do it. I would love that," Franco said. Franco has teamed up with Anne Hathaway to host the award ceremony on February 27. But he will appear on the soap `General Hospital` the day before and after co-hosting the Oscars.

He`ll reprise his serial killer character, also named Franco on the show.
