    "It's kind of a surreal day," Jackman told E! News. "I'll probably always remember Thursday, Dec. 13 and I think I'm either going straight from here to buy a lottery ticket or to a casino because it just feels like someone is looking down on me in a very nice way at this moment.

    He added, "I'm excited. The star is right here outside where I got to host the Oscars and if the movie gets nominated [for an Oscar], it'll be nice to get up there and show a little bit of the show to everybody."

    Congrats, Hugh!
