Hugh Jackman won’t host the Oscars next year

Hugh Jackman won’t host the Oscars next year

Round up the usual suspects. Deadline confirms that Hugh Jackman has declined another invitation to zhush up glam up the Oscars: Jackman hosted two years ago, and he turned down an overture last year because he didn’t want to host two years in a row. This time, Jackman is busy preparing to reprise in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2 sequel that 20th Century is mobilizing to begin shooting in late…

The LA Times’ Patrick Goldstein talks up the decision to go with two different producers this year and seems to suggest that the host will once again be Hugh Jackman. The question remains, though – how much of the show’s success last year was on Jackman and how much was on the Condon/Mark combo?: Still, it’s a safe, emergency-swing style choice. More than anything else, it reflects the fact that…

How much did the leak hurt Wolverine?

Some talk in the comments overnight about the big weekend numbers for Wolverine, and how the box-office seemed bulletproof to the online leak of a high-quality print (minus some special effects.) $87 mil is a lot of wolvergreen, by any measure, and there are obviously millions of people who were going to show up for Wolverine even if they’d shown the unfinished effects-less film in theaters. But to claim Wolverine…

I was going to stay out of this one, but the aftermath got too messy to ignore. It was widely reported last week that one of FOX’s most important summer tentpoles got some premature morning wood on April Fools’ Day when a nearly complete workprint of Wolverine apparently heard the call of the wild and escaped online. If you wonder what kind of gaping internal security assholes might facilitate or…

Hugh Jackman’s description of the staging of this year’s Oscar broadcast: The look of the theater is very different. It’s more like the nightclub of your dreams. It’s very intimate. … It’s got to be a lot closer. It’s been a little austere in the past. You know, there’s that stage, the host being up above the stalls, looking down at everybody. … But this is a lot more intimate….

Thanks to reader Peter for the heads up — looks like a collaboration is in the works. No word yet on whether it’s really going down: It looks like the Academy Awards will provide a reunion for Tony-winning actor Hugh Jackman (The Boy From Oz) and Oscar-nominated director Baz Luhrmann (“Moulin Rouge”). Fox News reports that Jackman has asked Luhrmann (and Luhrmann’s wife Catherine Martin), who directed Jackman in the…

Let the backbiting Jackman backlash begin! Mary McNamara, LA Times TV critic, can’t decide if Hugh Jackman is a hottie or a nottie: Yes, Jackman was just named People‚Äôs Sexiest Man Alive, and yes, he is Wolverine of ‚ÄúX-Men‚Äù but do we want Wolverine hosting the Oscars? Probably not… Will the Oscar gift baskets include smelling salts? I think she means poppers. Patrick Goldstein has had enough of TV talk…

Thanks to reader Josh for tipping us off that Oprah went nuts for Australia on Monday’s show. Here is what she said: “I have not been this excited for a movie since I don’t know when. I’m telling you, have I got the movie for you.¬† It’s the best movie I’ve seen in a long, long, long, long time. It literally swept me off my feet.” While this might be…
