It's Official: Eddie Murphy Is Hosting the Oscars Next Year


This morning it was a rumor, and now it is confirmed: Eddie Murphy will be hosting February's Academy Awards. I really hope he kills this! For all of his recent crimes against entertainment, I have got to believe that the man who made Raw is still in there somewhere. Let's just all hope that he commits as hard to this gig as he did to singing in the video for "Party All The Time." I mean, just look at how hard he commits to it! And Oscars director Brett Ratner will be playing the Rick James role to Eddie this time. So what I'm saying is, I'm optimistic.

    Dear god I hope this turns out well. I mean, relative to the bar set by other Oscars, even.

    I hope this works out for him. There's an entire generation of comedy fans who only know him as a hack. He needs to turn that around.

    I hope one of the Musical Numbers for the Oscar's is either Party All the Time or this
