Eddie Murphy Confirms That He WILL Host Next Year's Oscars!

eddie murphy confirms he will host oscars

This is your chance, Eddie! We'll forget ALL about The Haunted Mansion and Dr. Doolittle 1 & 2 and Norbit and Nutty Professor II: The Klumps and Meet Dave if you do this one right! LOLz.

Earlier today, we heard that next year's Oscars show producer Brett Ratner wants Eddie Murphy to host the show, because after directing him in Tower Heist he thinks that Eddie is the ONLY man for the job!

While we've been conditioned to be skeptical about nearly everything Eddie Murphy-related over the years, we were thinking that this could be his chance to prove us wrong and turn it all around.

Looks like he's going to get that chance, because he's reportedly officially agreed to host the 84th Academy Awards!

Let's do this thing, Eddie! Remind us why we loved you in Coming to America, Trading Places, and Beverly Hills Cop!

Good luck!

    Should be great to hear more white jokes

  2. 2

    EW. He hasn't been funny since the 80's. Horrible choice.

  3. 3

    How quickly you have forgotten his academy award nomination for Dreamgirls.

  4. 4

    Goonie Goo Goo, Gus!

  5. 5

    I lost all respect for him during his sex scandals. I also think he tried to deny one of his children. That is just ghetto if you ask me. Now to me he is just another nasty motherfucker.

  6. 6

    Dreamgirls ALL Black movie with ALL black cast!! Imagine that!!!!

  7. 7

    This would have been edgy 24 years ago, on the heels of Raw, the last truly funny work of Mr. Murphy but Norbit/Shrek/Disney-Murphy?


    Unless he's teamed with someone who's still funny, like Steve Martin (who managed to amke Eddie funny in Bowfinger, this will be the snoozer of all Acad Award Shows.

    Re: Yenkme – Hey niggy niggy niggy….what's up my niggy?

    Re: Yenkme – I know youy are not black Yenkme…but that is what's funny what up my niggy? How is my niggy doing? WTF is up niggy?

    What a great pick as host!
    Another unfunny, Black man with swagga to roast the American people for a couple of hours.
    How does the Academy do it? The ratings will go through the roof.

  13. 13

    Deadbeat father.

  14. 14

    Yeah we don't want him to host. He is so not talented anymore.
    Bye bye EDDIE you the FUCK you man EDDIE.

  15. 15

    Thank you baby jesus! Finally, someone funny. If we can't have Ricky Gervias, Eddie will do just fine.

    I hope he still hangs out with normal people or else his jokes are going to be out of touch… he is clever, and funny and I have reservations if he can pull it off. I wish him well for sure, and I personally find most his movies funny, but his biting and cutting edge humor hasn't been sharp since he made it big. I can't think of anyone whose humor remained edgy after the hunger is gone… now if he pulled out a guest spot by Jim Carrey's Fire Marshall Bill as a guest at Mr Robinson's neighborhood…

    Re: whatthe321 – The only niggy is proving its self again & again!!

    Re: Yenkme – lol you are so funny I love it!!!!

  19. T.rex says – reply to this


    i hope he's good, sorta like how i was rooting for Mike Tyson to be competitive in his final bout, or Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skulls to be good…. That is, i hope, but not expecting it.

  20. 20

    he face is creepy

  21. 21

    Hopefully the funny Eddie Murphy shows up, he has been gone for a few decades now.

  22. 22

    Why cross out Norbit? That movie was great. There are tons of black women who act just like that!

  23. 23

    It's a little disturbing to see how this could actually be turned into an issue about ethnicity. How is it even remotely relevant, or even rational? Yes, he is African-American, he is black - and? What I would think would be relevant, would be his personality, which quite frankly is quite off-putting. He is clever, and an excellent comedian, but a complete douche.

  24. 24

    Hope he does OK, have not seen any of his movies since the first Dr. Doolittle.

    Was really rooting for Billy Crystal, he was great in his short appearance last year.

  25. 25

    ugh hate him! he thinks he is funny but he is extremely boring

  26. 26

    As long as he doesn't leave during the best supporting nominations I'm fine.

  27. 27

    as much as I want this to be a good choice, he has not been funny for a long time. here's to hoping it goes well!

  28. 28

    …..but he lost his funny years ago…….
