Lucky 13 For Hugh Jackman As He Celebrates Golden Globe Nod And Hollywood Star On Same Day

The number 13 might be unlucky for some, but actor Hugh Jackman will likely remember Thursday, December 13 2012 for some time indeed. The X-Men star enjoyed a great day in Hollywood as he woke up in the morning to find himself nominated for a Golden Globes award, and then strolled on down to the famous Hollywood Walk Of Fame to be celebrated as the 2487th person to gain a star on the pathway.

It’s been a terrific week in general for Jackman; as well as his Golden Globes nod, he also received a Screen Actors Guild nomination earlier in the week – both for his performance in the forthcoming Les Miserables – and he was in understandably chipper spirits as he spoke to E! News. "It's kind of a surreal day," Jackman said. "I'll probably always remember Thursday, December 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.”

Of course, nominations are one thing, but winning the prizes themselves are another, and Jackman couldn’t resist a sly look ahead to the biggest awards of them all: the Oscars. "I'm excited” he said. “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." You wouldn’t bet against him on this form!
