The Academy announced, the shocking news that “Australia’s” leading star and he received the award for People’s “Sexiest Man Alive”, Hugh Jackman is set to host the 81st Annual Oscar Awards on February 22nd in 2009. He will be taking over comedian Jon Stewart’s spot as host. Jon Stewart host of “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, hosted the Oscars the last two years. The next two years maybe Jackman’s turn.
How much do you want to bet that Hugh’s going to be making jokes of his “Sexiest Man Alive” award throughout most of the show? He’s probably going to be making fun of himself for entertainment value.
And how much do you want to bet now that Hugh Jackman is host, he will get nominated as Best Male Lead for “Australia” and he will win that award no matter what happens. That will also attract Nicole Kidman to win Best Female Lead for “Australia”, that way it can bring Nicole and Hugh together on stage.
I hope Jackman has what it takes to host an awards show ’cause I don’t think he has before and hope he will be entertaining, and not boring like Jon Stewart was.
I got online late because I lost power most of the day due to today’s snow storm.
