Hugh Jackman to host Oscars

jackmanhugh-121608Actor Hugh Jackman (“Australia”, “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) has been tapped to host this year’s Oscar telecast on February 22, 2009.  Laurence Mark and Bill Condon, producers of the awards show, called the Australian actor  “a consummate entertainer and an internationally renowned movie star.”

“He also has style, elegance and a sense of occasion,” Mark and Condon said in a joint statement. “Hugh is the ideal choice to host a celebration of the year’s movies — and to have fun doing it.”

Jackman had the following to say in a statement:

“Thirty years ago when I was in Sydney watching Johnny Carson host the Oscars with my family, I never imagined that I’d one day have the chance to be up on that stage myself,” Jackman said. “I am very grateful to the Academy for giving me this opportunity. And, excited to be working with Larry and Bill on what I know will be a fun and memorable celebration.”

The 81st Annual Academy Awards will be broadcast on Sunday, February 22nd on ABC.
