Eddie Murphy to Host the Academy Awards

Posted: September 7th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Eddie Murphy to Host the Academy AwardsSubmit Comment
We've been hearing rumors about Eddie Murphy possibly hosting the Oscars, but now Academy Awards producers Brett Ratner and Don Mischer have confirmed that the comedian will in fact the host of the 84th annual Oscar ceremony.

This doesn't as much of a surprise since Murphy is the star of Ratner's latest film, the comedy "Tower Heist." This will be the actors first time hosting the Academy Awards. He was nominated for an Oscar in 2006 for his supporting role in "Dreamgirls."

Ratner called Murphy "a comedic genius; one of the greatest and most influential live performers ever." Mischer said that Murphy is "a truly groundbreaking performer" whose "quick wit and charisma will serve him very well as Oscar host."

Sorry Alex you got this one wrong, Murphy has host the oscars before, back in 1993.

Hope he's more funny this time.

Great news. Just another reason for me not to tune in and watch.

'Ratner called Murphy "a comedic genius;' --- that's quite the praise from a man that admits to f*cking wheelchair-bound retards in trees.

Edit (you should correct this Alex):

'We've been hearing rumors about Eddie Murphy... being funny again, as he's taken a break from being so for 20 years.'

Eddie's still a funny dude. I saw him on Conan a long time ago and he still has the capabilites to be great on stage...I just hope he makes this count. I'm watching it.

@Big - apparently Eddie is 'ON' a redneck bar in that video and not 'IN' one. I suspect one of the Clampetts wrote the headline for that video.

Nope Dre-El your wrong back in 1993 Billy Crystal was still hosting it. Eddie Murphy has never hosted it!

even though he hasn't been in a good movie in years, he is still a great comedian and i think will do a good job as the host.
