Hugh Jackman's Opening at 2009 Oscars

Sexiest man alive Hugh Jackman is bringing some excitement and sexiness back to the Oscars with a musical opening that Mr. Oscar himself hasn’t seen in the past 81 years.

Jackman’s opening act included him singing about the nominated films, Slumdog Millionaire, Milk, The Reader, The Wrestler and a surprise performance with Anne Hathaway for “Frost/Nixon.”

Hugh brought Anne Hathaway on stage as they performed a fun duet. Who knew Anne had those pipes? We were surely impressed.

Hugh also joked about the current economic crisis and how he must contractually mention Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at least five times throughout the show. Angie found that really funny!

It was definitely a great opening! The atmosphere was relaxed and fun as the stars that were probably nervous wrecks waiting to hear if they would be taking home an Oscar.

And what’s Hollywood without some shameless promotion? Jackman managed to end his number promoting his upcoming flick Wolverine.

In the end, Hugh received a standing ovation, which is what he deserved. What did you guys think of Hugh Jackman’s opening number?
