Hugh Jackman, star of May 1 release "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," will host the Feb. 22 Oscars ceremony, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences confirmed Friday.

Jackman apparently got the gig because he did such a bang-up job hosting the Tonys.

The 2009 Oscars will mark the first time in a while since the Oscars have gone without a stand-up comic host.

It's a great idea going with Jackman instead of a comic......at one point it looked like Ricky Gervais could be hosting, but I think he'd be too sarcastic and ironic for the Oscars   Jackman's an all round entertainer....he can sing and dance, as well as act and he seems natural and down to earth. He should do a good job.....if I could only see the Oscars in the first place    The BBC should pay for the rights to broadcast it on the night....or repeat it a few days later.

Yeah i agree with you babe i think he might be good too...i hope he does a video thing at the beginning like Crystal used to...that used to be the best part  

i hope the BBC get it back too but i can't see it Sky seemed determined to keep it...i always end up watching on the net the last few years there

I loved those bits with Billy Crystal   I believe Jackman won't be going down the comedy route though I should imagine he'd throw in a few funny quips here and there!

Ah yeah i think he will have to have some comedy moments or it will be quite boring...but Jackman grabs me to be a bit of a laugh anyway so i'm hoping anyway

I caught a bit of some awards show he hosted and he had a good rapport with the audience so he'll be excellent as the Oscars presenter
