I've never been a fan of the folks they usually get to host the Tony Awards. I'm not a huge Jackman fan (being a striaght guy) — he did it for several years in the 2000's. Sometimes the ceremony goes host-less, which is kind of bland. Whoopi was okay last year, but didn't bowl me over.
Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick hosting in 2001 was the last time I thought the academy made a good choice. Up until now.
