Jackman Is Tops For Show Highlights

Jackman Is Tops For Show Highlights-photo

This truly was a singing and dancing Academy Awards. Host Hugh Jackman showed that from moment one with his "low-budget" opening number. The hilarious routine got the show off to a wild start, especially when Anne Hathaway was pulled out of her seat to join him on stage (as Shirley MacLaine noted later from the stage, who knew the girl could sing like that). 

 

It doesn't appear we'll be forgetting about the Craigslist dancers anytime soon. And Jackman's massively-condensed Benjamin Button had Brad Pitt applauding. 

The show took a more somber turn later on when Queen Latifah sang through the memorial of actors who died over the past year.

    Every Thing about the Awards this year, the clothes and presentation and receiving of the Oscars, was just VERY CLASSY. LESS DOES MEAN MORE. NO extravaganza was needed. Hugh Jackman was like Fred and Ginger reincarnated.
