Hugh Jackman, who’s been chosen to host the upcoming Oscar® ceremony, deserves a tribute of his own. That’s why movie buff and award-winning blogger Fausta Wertz has agreed to join me, my co-host Jazz Shaw and my producer Nikki Starr for a discussion of Jackman’s impressive show biz career on the next Movie Addict Headquarters show.
This will be Jackman’s first stint at hosting the Oscars®, but Academy Awards producer Laurence Mark and executive producer Bill Condon have high hopes for his hosting abilities.“Hugh Jackman is a consummate entertainer and an internationally renowned movie star,” they said in a joint statement. “He also has style, elegance and a sense of occasion. Hugh is the ideal choice to host a celebration of the year’s movies -- and to have fun doing it.”
Although probably known best for his exciting Wolverine role in the X-Men movies, this talented Australian actor boasts over 30 films and TV shows to his credit, plus he’s also earned acclaim for his outstanding performances in stage musicals, even winning a Tony for The Boy from Oz. And we mustn’t forget Jackman’s Emmy -- which he earned for his entertaining turn as host of the Tony Awards.
