In Defense of Hugh Jackman

The Los Angeles Times hated Academy Awards host Hugh Jackman’s opening number last night. We don’t have a TV here, but I just caught up with Jackman’s vaudeville-like schtick via YouTube.

You know what? I love it. Reminds me of Jackman’s winning performance in The Boy From Oz. Jackman’s a Libra with a sizzling Venus/Juno conjunction in Scorpio. He was born Oct. 12, 1968 in Sydney (time unknown). You can view his chart here.

Best known for his portrayal of comic book superhero Wolverine in the X-Men films, Jackman is a consummate performer. He dances, sings, tells jokes (some at his own expense). And did I mention that he’s drop-dead gorgeous?

I’m sorry if the LA Times thinks you’re not allowed to use the words “pubic hair” in an Oscar send-up. I found Jackman’s opening number a breath of fresh air in a company town that takes itself way too seriously.

And even though Anne Hathaway didn’t get the Oscar for Rachel Getting Married, Jackman made her the star of the show last night when he pulled her out of the audience to play Nixon to his Frost. That’s Libra for you: He needs a partner.

  1. did you catch Barbara Walters interview with Anne Hathaway… Hathaway’s obvious embarrassment that her mother’s comment about why she and her father were so long married: “we have great sex!”

    Anne Hathaway’s reaction was pure Scorpio…. the mom is probably a Leo or an Aquarius….

  2. Hugh Jackman’s torso is one of the great works of popular art in the entire world. He can frankly do no wrong in my book. Plus, I met his Australian interior decorator last summer in Fire Island, and he confirmed that Mr. Jackman is not only ridiculously handsome but he’s a really Nice Guy. I’m sure he’ll be zapped by the fates soon. It’s the way of the world.
