Hugh Jackman has been nominated for an Emmy for his role in Bad Education.

The 51-year-old plays school superintendent Frank Tassone in the 2019 drama – our reviewer said he delivered "his best performance as the charming, impeccably groomed Dr Frank Tassone".

When asked about the nom, the actor told E!'s Scott Tweedie: "It's a good way to wake up! I feel really good."

He said he's received "lots of texts" from friends congratulating him but "nothing from Ryan" yet.

"But Blake… hang on, I'm just reading it now," he said. "'He's devastated. He says he's not getting out of bed for three days. This is the greatest gift you've ever given me," he joked, supposedly reading a message from Blake Lively.

"I don't know! That's all I got from Blake."

The Wolverine star has been in an ongoing fake (we think) feud with the Deadpool actor for as long as we can remember. Remember the time Hugh recruited Jake Gyllenhaal and they both told Ryan the Christmas party was a sweater party?

Or when he congratulated John Legend on becoming People's Sexiest Man Alive?

"99% of the time, People Magazine gets it right. Such as Blake, DJ, etc... But a word of caution. There is the 1%. Exhibit A," he wrote on Instagram, referring to Ryan Reynolds. "It's important that you fall in with the right crowd. Enjoy your reign. Love Hugh."
