Globes Best “Babe”: Hugh Jackman
Why doesn’t it sound cheesy and skeevy when Hugh Jackman says it? When he repeatedly refers to his wife as “babe” up on stage, why is it that he can do this without making us cringe?
Oh the power of Hugh Jackman.
But before we gush about Hugh Jackman, can we please applaud everyone last night for calling it by its proper name: LES MISERABLES!?! There were hardly any instances of the dreaded “Les Mis”! Please click here if you are unfamiliar with my feelings about “Les Mis”.
Back to Hugh...
Look, he got up on stage and talked about a bad rehearsal. He will never be too big to talk about a bad rehearsal. Some things cannot be repeated too many times:
He is a good person. He is kind and gracious and generous and he deserves it. He deserves this. If there was one actor in the room last night that none of them could backstab -- and they backstab EVERYONE -- it’s Hugh Jackman. So as much as I love DDL, please Academy, let it be Hugh.
