Its Official Eddie Murphy is going to host the academy Awards. There was a lot of talk over the weekend about Murphy emceeing the event. However, over the holiday weekend and after a lot of big names offered their service to host, AMPAS
President Tom Sherak Only had the comedian on his mind. Murphy was chosen a lot soon then Usual. They are generally always chosen in the month of January. I think that this will be one of the most watched Oscars because you never know what Murphy is going to say. Have you seen RAW? Yeah! Eddie Murphy can be just that, despite his last 5 Movies which catered to the ages of 1 – 16. I say they should just add about 5 more seconds to the delay. Just kidding. Anyways, Eddie Murphy appeals to a wide range of demographic which is going to be good for ratings. The Veteran Comedian has had plenty of time in front crowds, from getting his start on Saturday night live to his countless Stand-up appearances. So nobody should have doubts that he could do this.
Murphy Stars in Bret Ratner’s Tower Heist coming out soon also A Thousand Words scheduled for release on January 12th.
