Once again the Academy has approached Jackman in regards to hosting the 83rd Academy Awards, but he turned it down! Why? He’ll be too busy filming the sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which will begin shooting right around the time of the Oscars in late February. Boo!

So who will host now? Will they choose a woman for once, like Tina Fey? Or perhaps someone younger, like a Glee kid or maybe Justin Timberlake? (Deadline)

Tell us: who would you like to see host the Oscars?

    I think Tina Fey would do a great job! Sad about Hugh Jackman, though.

    I’d love to see Tina!! Hugh Jackman is an amazing entertainer. He does movies like Wolverine (or whatever it was called) and also Broadway plays. No one else does that.
