SURPRISE WIN

Jackman shared that his win came as a surprise because he did not know that such a category existed for hosts. He shared:

"It was all very very surprising. So, I have a little more heads up this time."

Unlike the previous Emmy events, this year's awarding will happen virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic, and "The Greatest Showman" star claimed he will be dressed "from the waist up."

FRIENDLY FEUD WITH RYAN REYNOLDS

Fellow actor Ryan Reynolds, Jackman's frenemy, sent his congratulations to the "Bad Education" star after hearing the news.

The couple decided to adopt both Oscar and Ava after IVF did not work.

In a funny video, the "Deadpool" actor congratulated Jackman before adding, "that's just crazy. That's crazy. Not cause you don't deserve it."

In his interview with Extra, the five-time Emmy Award nominee shared that he expected his feud buddy to be taking the news hard, predicting "three days in bed."

With Reynolds' bed rest, his wife, Blake Lively, will definitely be happy the same way the lockdown has brought the "X-Men" star and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, closer.

Their forced time together with no work allowed the couple to get to know and appreciate each other even more than before.

JACKMAN'S FAMILY

Jackman and his wife have been married for 25 years with two beautiful children, Oscar and Ava, who are both pretty grown up.

Oscar is currently a college student while Ava is in high school. More than being a father, the "Logan" actor built a friendship with his kids for them to be open with one other.
