If Steven Spielberg's Lincoln ever heads to Broadway as a musical, it will have no trouble finding its leading man.
In a comical bit of Oscars mischief, Hugh Jackman showed up to The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday dressed as the 16th president and proceeded to sing the opening line of the Gettysburg Address – to prove that he, and not Daniel Day-Lewis, deserves the Oscar for Best Actor.
"The truth is, I wanted to sway a few last-minute Oscar voters. I'll be honest. I mean, really, can Daniel Day-Lewis do this?" Jackman said before breaking into song.

Thirteen may be an unlucky number ... but 2013 certainly is not – at least for this year's class of Oscar nominees.
Everyone who is up for an Academy Award at the 85th annual ceremony on Feb. 24 was invited to attend a luncheon at the Beverly Hilton hotel on Monday.
There, Bradley Cooper, Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and more stars – as well as nominees from every category – rubbed elbows and posed for the official class photo.

Might Adele wrestle a foul-mouthed bear for an Academy Award? Or will a criminal on the run sweep in to steal the statuette?
At this year's Academy Awards, it's anyone's guess.
The Oscar nominees were announced Jan. 10, and the five nominated tracks for Best Original Song range from jazzy tunes like the Norah Jones-sung "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" (Ted) to pop hits like Adele's "Skyfall" (Skyfall). The nominated bunch also includes moody, new age tracks like "Pi's Lullaby" (Life of Pi); bluesy ballads like the Scarlett Johansson-sung "Before My Time" (Chasing Ice); and Hugh Jackman's heart-wrenching, Broadway-ready ballad from Les Misérables, "Suddenly."
Listen to the nominated songs below – and then check out which songs (cough, mostly Disney songs in the '90s, cough) took home the Oscar for Best Original Songs in the past.

This year's Oscars may not take place until Feb. 24, but the ceremony's host, Seth MacFarlane, already started earning his salary Thursday morning – by joining Emma Stone to announce the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Beverly Hills.
And the name that kept coming up: Lincoln, which reaped the lion's share number of nominations, 12, including those for Best Picture, Best Director Steven Spielberg, Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Supporting Actress Sally Field.
Other highly recognized films were Life of Pi, with 11 nominations; Les Misérables, with nine; and Argo, with seven, though, surprisingly, not one for its director Ben Affleck.
