Hugh Attends 2012 Helpmann Awards


On September 24th, there was one special, surprise guest at this year’s Helpmann Awards: Hugh Jackman himself! Unannounced to attendees of the award show, he showed up onstage – complete with Wolverine muttonchops – to present Best Musical. Hugh’s friend and fellow Aussie, Cate Blanchett, was also there as she won an award for Best Female Actress in a Play (for her role in Gross und Klein). The Helpmanns “recognize distinguished artistic achievement and excellence in Australia’s live performing arts sector.”
