Hugh Jackman Will Host The Oscars

Hugh-Jackman-Oscar-Host.jpgBrilliant brilliant brilliant choice! Wolverine himself will be hosting the Oscars this year. Hugh Jackman was offered the gig to host the big show and several news sources have confirmed that he has indeed accepted he part. Good news!

This is a fantastic choice for several reasons:

1) I’ve been saying for years that the biggest night in the MOVIE Industry’s year should be hosted by… you know… a MOVIE person. Some some TV host (Ellen made me want to end my own life watching her hack her way through the Oscars. I have no complaints at all about the job Stewart did, but I want legitimate movie personality). Hugh Jackman is a legit movie star, and thus is a welcome addition in my opinion.

2) He recently won a bloody emmy award for the job he did hosting the Tony Awards. He has a great personality, very charismatic and will do a terrific job. He has the presence and charisma to hold and carry the show.

3) He will be good for the ratings. Jackman was a couple of high profile movie projects on the go right now and was just recently named People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive”. The think for a second that didn’t figure into this and the potential of drawing in more female audience members

This is the first Oscar Host announcement in years that I can honestly say I am truly enthusiastic about.
