So, Hugh Jackman hosted the Oscars this year, and while I thought he did a pretty good job, I have to admit that there was something about this year’s telecast that I didn’t really care for. Show stopping musical numbers. There were TWO! What the hell guys? I know Hugh loves him some musicals, but this isn’t the Tonys.
The first one was amusing at least, with Anne Hathaway playing an unwilling Richard Nixon, and Jackman admitting that he has no clue what The Reader is even about, all while taking little digs at the Academy.
He’s no John Stewart, but here’s Hugh Jackman being cute.
