X-Man Doesn't Mark the Spot for Oscars: Hugh Jackman Won't Rehost

X-Man Doesn't Mark the Spot for Oscars: Hugh Jackman Won't Rehost
by Gina Serpe

Hugh Jackman would like to thank the Academy, but no thanks.

Despite his critically (the gig garnered several Emmy nominations) and publicly (he breathed new life and viewers into the ratings sinkhole) acclaimed Oscars hosting stint last spring, the Aussie actor will not be returning to the podium for the 2010 telecast.

Jackman's quiet exit doesn't mean he won't one day become this generation's Billy Crystal. His rep confirmed to E! News that he has not ruled out a return to the Oscar stage, but just didn't want to emcee for two consecutive years.

Fair enough. After all, how are we supposed to realize how good this is until we spend a year without it?

No frontrunner has emerged to fill Jackman's sizable song-and-dance shoes, but with one obvious fill-in, Ricky Gervais, suddenly bringing new buzz to the Golden Globes, the Academy better bring out the big guns.

So…Stephen Colbert, Neil Patrick Harris, Conan O'Brien, Chris Rock, Ellen DeGeneres, uh, Robert Pattinson…who would you like to see host the 82nd Annual Academy Awards when they return March 7?

And That's How They Became the Deadpool Bunch


I heard reports of this madness from the Diamond Retailers Summit a couple weeks ago, but with no one to go on the record or any pics, I wasn't going to post. Now, thanks to these pics from The Beat, I can: the Marvel universe will welcome not just Lady Deadpool, but The Deadpool Corps., which seems to include Deadpool, Lady Deadpool, a Kid Deadpool, and either a dog or cat Deadpool (it's hard for me to tell).
