Hugh Jackman roots for Heath Ledger to win Oscar


Mon, Feb 16, 2009 12:00 IST

Late actor Heath Ledger is the favourite of Hugh Jackman, who'll host the Oscar ceremony this year, to win a golden man.

Australian actor Jackman, who recently starred in 'Australia', wants compatriot Ledger to clinch the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor (Male) for his riveting performance as 'Joker' in 'The Dark Knight'.

"I can't hide the fact that I would really love for that honor to be bestowed upon him (Ledger)," Jackman is quoted by People.com.



"It would be fitting and I think he deserves it," Jackman added.

Ledger died from an accidental overdose of prescribed drugs in January last year. He has already won a Golden Globe and BAFTA award (both posthumous) for his role in 'The Dark Knight', which was his last released movie.

Jackman, who is preparing to host this year's gala event, is quite in awe of Kodak Theatre, where the Oscar ceremony is held every year.

"The look of the theater is very different...It's more like the nightclub of your dreams. It's very intimate," Jackman is quoted as saying.

The Oscar ceremony would be held on February 22.
