This is the greatest show!

Hugh Jackman has been honoured with the Order of Australia medal for his services to the performing arts and the wider community, in particular for his advocacy for poverty eradication.

The ceremony, which took place at Government House, saw Australian Governor-General David Hurley honour the beloved performer by awarding him the Companion of the Order, which is the highest of the four levels of the Order of Australia.

“On this occasion, I’m reminded that I share this honour with my parents, siblings, friends and, especially w Deb, Oscar & Ava,” he tweeted.

“There are countless teachers, coaches and mentors who’ve taught and inspired me along the way. I will forever be in their debt. Thank you Governor General.”

Jackman got news of his award in June 2019.

“As the youngest son of parents who made the decision to immigrate to Australia the year before I was born, this honour is especially emotional and humbling to me,” he said in a statement.

Go Hugh!
