Hugh Jackman, who hosted the Oscars in 2009 and has previously hosted the Tony Awards on Broadway, has turned down an offer to host the upcoming Academy Awards. Not only does the awards show conflict with his X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2 shooting schedule, but he also feels someone else should get the opportunity. He turned it down last year as well, so Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin shared hosting duties. Betty White, 88, who hosted the live late night show Saturday Night Live a few months ago, is apparently considered the front runner to host the Oscars. The nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards, which will be held on February 27, 2011, will be announced on January 25, 2011.
