Hugh Jackman: Academy Awards TOMORROW!

Hugh Jackman: Academy Awards TOMORROW!

The Oscars are just a day away and the buzz is continuing to build!

“I know from watching in the past that the sport isn’t how great the host is doing,” Oscars host Hugh Jackman tells LA Times with a laugh, “it’s that they’re dying, that there are crickets chirping when they make a joke, that they’re horrible. But the beauty of being there is I’m going to be in a room filled with people far more nervous than I am. They’re all nominated, and they don’t know what’s going to happen. And I assure you, the camera will be on Brad [Pitt] more than it will be on me.”

As reported earlier, performers for the night also include: Anne Hathaway, Beyoncé, Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens and Amanda Seyfried & Dominic Cooper.

  • Closet celebrities

    I luuuuuv Hugh Jackman but the word in Tinseltown is he’s one of those “macho” guyz who secretly is gay/bi. The same as Gerard Butler and Vin Diesel. Come on out of the closet, boyz!

  • Janeway

    OMG, look at those arms! Hugh is so hot and so talented and charming! And he looks amazing in a tux (though it ‘s not as good as shirtless). I can’t wait!

  • Annie

    I LOVE YOU HUGH <3

  • tiana

    Gerry said once : “I’m not gay, I’m not straight, I’m just me.
    What more do you want from him.? Live and let live!!

  • MaryE

    Hugh Jackman is the ONLY reason why I will spend anytime watching the
    Oscars. He will make a show out of it.

    Why JJ is not putting my post here?

  • FED UP WITH THE OSCARS ALREADY

    NO BRAD PITT IS GAY AND SO IS ANGIE THAT IS THE SECRET OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP. So get over it. That is why they are not winning any awards!. The gay couple of the year goes to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt! They are the only gay people at the Oscars or in Hollywood this weekend. And Heath Ledger he was found with his
    gay lover in bed and that is why they took so long to get the 911 call

  • Closet celebrities

    Tiana your post is here 3 times, jeeeeez!

    For the record I love all those guyz Gerard Hugh Vin. Just sick of the Hollywood coverups.

  • ashley

    ahhhhh, i can’t wait. god i love hugh jackman :)

    australia references please !

  • just sayin

    Is Hugh Trying to tell us that brad is gonna be humiliated tomorrow night with the camera panned on him? rotflmoa

    Hugh J is soo Hot! I’m sure Angie would love to ride that muscle man. She fell for brd when he still had his troy steroid body .

  • tiana

    jared jared jared we know zac efron and vanessa are performing how many times are you going to mention it?

  • cinnamon

    #16, Gerry never said anything like that, it was invented, give me the link of the interview and I will believe that

  • to Closet celebrities

    first off; gerard butler gay? i cannot tell you how far wrong you are! consider this a case of not only “what you know but who you know” and leave it at that.

    as for hugh jackman, i went to see “the man from oz” in new york. it was great by the way. anyway in the ladies room some girls started talking about the idea that hugh is gay. from out of nowhere this lady’s voice came out from inside a stall “he’s not gay!”. a few minutes later a woman came out and as she was washing her hands looked at the group of us and said “i should know i’m married to him”. then she left.
    i choose to believe the wife.

    brad pitt is gay? heath ledger was with his gay lover when they found him in bed?? hello, just where are you getting this fiction from; that’s what i’d like to know. not everyone one in hollywood is gay; you know. there’re plenty of straight people in the business.

  • selena j

    wow his arms r hugeee nd cnt wait to c tha oscars robert pattinson is gunna be there

  • selena j

    wow his arms r hugeee nd cnt wait to c tha oscars robert pattinson is gunna be there

  • Closet celebrities

    I was referring to BI not necessarily gay. Who cares, there’s nothing wrong with being bi or gay! They need to own up to it.

  • cinnamon

    #27 ????

  • lala

  • http://www.thatshideous.com that’s hideous

    i’m nervous for him
    hope he’s funny

  • jEN

    umm Anne Hathaway to perform?perform what???

  • cari

    oh PUHLEEZE!! Brad Pitt is not even in the same league as Hugh Jackman. Jackman was just being polite. Brad Pitt is lookin a little long in the tooth now….guess Angie is sucking the life out of him.

  • Jaguar

    to cari:

    I have to agree. Brad is a great looking guy but he looked better before the zillion kids and Angie. He just doesn’t look happy in photos anymore. This post has nothing to do with the Angie vs Jennifer drama since I don’t like either’s acting abilities, I’m saying this as a fact on looks alone then vs now.
