Hugh Jackman won't be making a repeat appearance as host of the 2010 Oscars. Tony Award winner Jackman, who is currently starring on Broadway alongside Daniel Craig inA Steady Rain, hosted the 2009 movie awards, but Entertainment Weekly and Variety report that Jackman has turned down an offer to headline the Academy Awards for a second time.

Sources said that he may return in the future, but did not want to go back this year.

Once Jackman completes his run in A Steady Rain (Dec. 6), he will take some time off to prepare for his next flick, the DreamWorks drama "Real Steel," directed by Shawn Levy, which begins production in the spring.

The March 7, 2010, Oscar telecast will mark the 82nd anniversary of Academy Awards, and will be executive produced by Bill Mechanic and Adam Shankman.
