Sad News! Entertainer Eddie Murphy will not be hosting The Oscars next February 2012. According to People, Murphy released a statement through AMPAS: “First and foremost I want to say that I completely understand and support each party’s decision with regard to a change of producers for this year’s Academy Awards ceremony.
“I was truly looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I’m sure that the new production team and host will do an equally great job.” WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE HOST THE OSCARS? PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS
It’s official Eddie Murphy will be the host of the 84th Annual Academy Awards according to AP. Murphy is extremely shy, however, when it comes to performing he’s a genius. He said in a statement Tuesday that he is “enormously honored” to join the ranks of past Academy Awards hosts such as Johnny Carson, Bob Hope, Billy Crystal, Steve Martin and Whoopi Goldberg according to AP.
I wish Murphy all the luck in the world, he is one of my all-time favorite actor-comedian. The only thing Murphy has done that I did not like was embarrassing was how he treated ex girlfriend Mel B when she announced the birth of their daughter together.
Murphy went public to question the paternity of the baby and that was uncalled for, the public was not in the bedroom with him and Mel B. I can understand being sure, however, it’s not what Murphy did it’s the way he did it.
The Academy Awards producers Don Mischer and Brett Ratner could not have chosen a better host than funny man Eddie Murphy. I know the ratings will sky rock.
