The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (ooo, fancy) confirmed that Hugh Jackman will host the 81st annual Oscars. In previous years, comedians such as Jon Stewart, Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg were usually called upon. This year, however, the Academy is planning to amaze everyone with a new look and feel. Which is to say, it’ll be exactly the same boring crap just like every other year except this time they’ll have Hugh Jackman.
He’s never been an Oscar nominee, but was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in 2001’s romantic film “Kate & Leopold.” His other movie credits include 2006’s “The Prestige” and 2004’s “Van Helsing.”
It sort of sucks that the AP lists Van Helsing among his most famed movies and not the upcoming Wolverine movie or The Fountain. It’s like saying you might remember Heath Ledger from A Knight’s Tale and 10 Things I Hate About You. Yea, you probably will, but do you really want to?
