    Its been confirmed that Eddie Murphy has accepted to host the 84th Annual Academy Awards which take place on February 26, 2012.

    Eddie Murphy had been hand-picked by Oscar co-producer Brett Ratner and director off upcoming Tower Heist in which Murphy stars. Last years James Franco and Anne Hathaway partnership was not that well received. Hopefully Murphy does a good job.

    I really don't like Eddie Murphy, but he can't be as bad as the James Franco and Anne Hathaway partnership last year. They were awful.

    Last year was awful, two years in a row the Golden Globes have been far more enjoyable thanks to Ricky even though I don't enjoy his tv series. Eddie Murphy might be a good change...

    Brett Ratner steps down as an Oscar producer (and issues a statement below)


    Earlier quotes like this did not really help!

    I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and say he was just making fun of rehearsals but used an unfortunate choice of words without thinking.

    I bet he's hoping Olivia Munn and Lindsey Lohan don't come back at him right now.

    OK so slightly off topic, but my wife and I went to see Driving Miss Daisy in London on Saturday afternoon, starring Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones, and when the play finished Sir Ben Kingsley came on stage and presented James Earl Jones with an Oscar - Wow what an unexpected treat that was.
    The play was fantastic and what a way to finish the day, I doubt that I will ever get that close to a real Oscar ever again.

    Andy.

    I love the Oscars, I've watched them for years. I don't always think they reward the better more entertaining films as much as they should, nor do I always agree on their picks for best film etc. But as a piece of TV entertainment, it is just that entertainment on a grand scale.

    The Oscars is dull, so stage managed and rehearsed I don't think it's entertainment of any kind. I haven't watched it for years.

    Same here, it's like some variety programme from the 70s on steroids and I can't understand why anybody would want to sit through it. Even worse, most of the time the wrong films/achievements get rewarded. I stopped watching sometime in the early 90s.

    Don't see why a guy acting like a chimp for a couple of hours deserves an Oscar. How come he's so mediocre when acting human?

    If it's Jonah Hill, can you please punch him in the face from me? :D

    Must have been really slim pickings this year if he's on the list...
