Weekend Roundup: Jackman, Page, Oprah, Puppy


Hugh Jackman (Peter Kramer -- AP)

Hugh Jackman -- who won a Tony, and later an Emmy for hosting the Tonys, and was once nominated for a Golden Globe -- will host the Oscars this year. He's never won an Oscar, but he did win People's "Sexiest Man Alive" last month, notes our colleague Marissa Newhall in Saturday's Names and Faces. This should help make up for the fact that his big-budget awards-bait "Australia" is tanking at the box office.

Also: Luke Skywalker's original "Star Wars" lightsaber just sold for $240,000, despite the fact that it's just a prop and next to useless when it comes to killing Siths, which don't really exist anyway. Oh, and more on that Biden puppy.

Also in Style this weekend: Stephen Hunter pays tribute to the Bettie Page, who brought class and joy to the early years of semi-porn pinups. Robin Givhan analyzes why we're so fascinated by Oprah's fat dramas: "Her marathon was our marathon. . . What makes Winfrey's tale of weight loss and gain so compelling is that it's so common."
