Safe in the knowledge that the gig won’t be interrupted by ‘Australia’ winning anything, Hugh Jackman has been named as the host of next year’s Oscars. We think we’re supposed to put a ‘TM’ next to Oscars. We’ll probably get a knock on the door any moment now. It’s all very Spooks.
He’s MC’d The Tonys three times, so he kind of knows what he’s doing. Those Oscars do go on, somewhat, so how he’ll fit in bumming us is anyone’s guess.
