Hugh Jackman was the first to be offered the hosting job at the upcoming Oscarcast by producers Bruce Cohen and Don Mischer, an offer he turned down because he’s preparing to shoot Wolverine with Oscar-nominated Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky. But Jackman–who in my view did an excellent job in his year as host two years ago–was just announced as a presenter in the upcoming Academy Awards hosted by James Franco and Anne Hathaway. I’m sure Jackman will be back as host one of these years.
