Here's a few aussie celebs reacting to his election on twitter.
Hugh Jackman tries to find polling booth in Canada
LIKE a scene from one of his Hollywood action movies, a frantic Hugh Jackman has found himself in a race against time.
But he isn't trying to save the world.
He's just trying to vote in Australia's federal election.
The Sydney-born movie star, who was at the Toronto Film Festival on Friday afternoon (Saturday morning AEST) to promote his new thriller Prisoners, said he was frantically trying to find out if he could cast his ballot in the Canadian city.
"I have to find a place here to do it,'' a desperate, but smiling, Jackman told AAP.
"I missed the postal vote date.
"Do you know where to do it here?''
When it was suggested the Australian Consulate in Toronto could help, Jackman appeared relieved.
"I have to duck out to do it,'' Jackman said.
"Not only do I get fined, there will be an article about me getting fined.''
Pray for us ONTD...
