Guess Who Turned Down Hosting The Academy Awards This Year?!

| Filed under: AwardzHugh Jackman


Damn! We would have liked to see him come back!

Although the Academy Awards are still a few months away, sources close to the production of the ceremony have revealed that executive producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer are hard at work looking for a person to take on the much-coveted hosting position, and they've already reached out an alum - Hugh Jackman!

Unfortunately, the actor had to turn down the job, because he's currently has his adamantium claws full prepping for production on X-Men Origins: Wolverine II!


Hopefully they can get him to do it in 2012, though!

What do U think?? Who do U want to see host the Oscars this year??

    The Oscars is lame and boring. People only watch it to see what the stars are wearing. Cause, theres always the same actors/actresses and theres none of them who havent won an oscar before. Everybody has an Oscar. Totally pointless show.

    aww bummer I like him, he was a great host!

    Lindsay's a Movie Star, and she should be out of that 12-Step Religious Cult indoctrination center in time for the awards show. She could sing, dance, make jokes, and present a wholesome image to tomorrow's stars, you know, project a good image….

    So Perez… are you campaigning again to get that job like you did when you wanted to be a judge on American Idol?

    glad to hear Wolverine 2 is going to start filming soon…the Japan story arc is going to be AWESOME. then they need to retire Wolverine for a good long while. while i looove him and especially Hugh as Logan, it's time to let the mutant rest. it's been 5 movies already.
