Hugh Jackman to host the Oscars
Pardon me while I become a 13-year-old girl for a moment: OMG!! OMG!!
Jackman is a break from the Academy's long history of favoring comedians in the host spot. But I suspect that they're looking for any way to pull up those ratings, and Jackman certainly has star power. And he is one suave fucker when he wants to be.
Oh, and he can sing like a freakin' baritone angel. Check out video of him in a production of Oklahoma if you don't believe me:
So, Academy, I'm begging you. Make Hugh sing as part of his hosting duties. If he sings, I promise to sigh and swoon like the fans in Bye Bye Birdie.
