Hugh Jackman turns down offer to host Oscars again

Wolverine star Hugh Jackman has decided not to return to host the next Oscars in 2010. While his rep has stated that he hasn't ruled out hosting all together, he claims he doesn't want to host two years in a row.

Makes sense. After all, Jackman is coming off one of his biggest years in his professional career. He received praise for hosting 2009's Oscars and rocketed X-Men Origins: Wolverine to almost $400 million worldwide. There's no doubt the man is one of the hottest actors in Hollywood.

So whose up for hosting? There have been rumors of Neil Patrick Harris (eh, stick to TV, you're great there), Ricky Gervais (hmm, not bad), Conan O'Brien (yes, please) and a few others. What do you think? Who do you want to see host the 2010 Oscars?
