Brett Ratner Has Resigned As Oscar Producer; Will Eddie Murphy Still Host?

Following (completely rightful) outrage over his comment that “rehearsal’s for fags,” Brett Ratner announced this morning that he’s resigned from producing the Academy Awards. So…is Eddie Murphy still gonna host, then? He’s said in interviews that Ratner brought him in while they were working together on Tower Heist, but it remains to be seen whether he’ll stick with the job. Either way, with Ratner out we’ll truly never know if this dialogue would’ve happened.
