No Oscars for Hugh
Well, it’s not like X-Men Origins: Wolverine was going to earn Hugh Jackman an Academy Award (we know), but the actor won’t be attending next year’s show – not as the evening’s host, at least.
Jackman has quietly pulled himself out of the running to host the 2010’s Oscars because he reportedly didn’t want to host the ceremony two years in a row.
I think it’s a smart move.
Dude’s special, and he should only make everything special. If Jackman thinks there can be such a thing as too much of him, then I won’t argue. I won’t like it, but I won’t argue.
Update: Another A-Lister who wont be, or doesn’t think he’ll be hosting the Oscars next year is next year’s Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais.
“If Oscars called, yes (I’d entertain the offer) but I don’t think they would,” the comedian told EW.com. “If they called me, I’d say, ‘I’ll turn up an hour before. I may be drunk, but just point me to where the microphone is.’ I don’t think they’ll accept those terms.”
