And if it doesn't work out with Brian, there are still a few other executive producers on Tower Heist that might be interested! Ha!

Last we heard about Academy President Tom Sherak's search for a replacement Oscar producer, Tower Heist's Brian Grazer was the frontrunner for the job.

Sure enough, Sherak has confirmed that Grazer WILL step in as Brett Ratner's replacement. Here's what the Academy Prez had to say about it:

Brian Grazer Is Frontrunner To Replace Brett Ratner As Oscar Producer

brian grazer in talks to replace brett ratner

Why does the Academy feel the need to ONLY choose people from Tower Heist to produce and host the show???

Now that Tower Heist director Brett Ratner and Tower Heist producer/star Eddie Murphy have resigned from the Oscars, Academy president Tom Sherak is interested in getting TOWER HEIST producer Brian Grazer to take over for Brett.

No word yet on who will take over for Eddie, but there are plenty of other Tower Heist actors who would probably be up for the job! Maybe they can ask Ben Stiller or Matthew Broderick! OR maybe Alan Alda is game!

What do U think? Should Brian Grazer take over as Oscar producer? Or would U prefer someone NOT associated with Tower Heist???

Howard Stern Defends Ratner's Recent Gaffs

howard-stern-comes-to-brett-ratners-defense-web.jpg

Shock jock Howard Stern has come to defend his recent guest, Brett Ratner.

Stern calls out Hollywood as hypocritical, and saying that members of Hollywood are "loopy."

Stern sites Hollywood's forgiveness towards Roman Polanski's past digressions as well as Hilary Swank's recent flub-up as well. Stern stated that while he does not use the word "fag" and hasn't for many years, he understands that Ratner has no anti-gay intentions.

Stern would go on and say the following:

Brett Ratner Expected To Team Up With GLAAD For Public Forums On LGBT Images

brett ratner to team up with glaad

Definitely a step back in the right direction for Brett.

To recap, earlier this week director Brett Ratner made a hateful, insensitive remark, and then soon thereafter his words were caught on tape.

THEN, Academy president Tom Sherak announced that he would NOT be firing Brett from the Oscars…but the director made the right move and resigned from the show anyway.

In his lengthy letter of apology, Brett mentioned that he was looking forward to working with GLAAD to "increase awareness of the important and troubling issues this episode has raised," and now it appears that GLAAD is taking him up on his offer.

GLAAD has announced that

eddie murphy quits as oscar host

Wow! The Oscars is gonna have to undergo a major facelift now!

After Brett Ratner was forced to resign for his rude comments, Eddie Murphy has stepped down from the hosting spot!

Though he doesn't directly say it's due to the loss of Brett by his side (Ratner recently directed Murphy's Tower Heist), that's what everyone's thinking, including the Academy's President Tom Sherak who says:

I appreciate how Eddie feels about losing his creative partner, Brett Ratner, and we all wish him well.

As for Eddie, here's what his statement says:

Brett Ratner RESIGNS As Producer Of The Oscars After Gay Slur Controversy!!!

Filed under: Gay Gay Gay

Shiz just got real!!!!

Brett Ratner put his foot in his mouth BIG TIME with his "rehearsing is for f*gs" comment (watch above) - so much so that he felt the heat from all corners of the entertainment industry and on Tuesday announced that he was stepping down as the producer of next year's Academy Awards.

In an open letter, Ratner apologized yet again and he wrote:

Brett Ratner's Homophobic Slur Caught On Tape!

Ugh. Clearly this was not just something he said on the fly and quickly regretted.

Brett Ratner has come under a great deal of - warranted, mind you - criticism for his despicable use of a gay slur during a Q&A session Friday after a screening of his new movie, Tower Heist, and now, we've finally got video of the incident as it went down!

Watch (above) as he's asked about the rehearsal process, only to pause and announce "Rehearsal's for ****," as though it's some kind of hilarious joke (at the 2:45 mark)!

Just so clASSy, right?

Rolled right off his tongue!

Clearly, this guy uses just amount as thought and tact here as he did during the entire filming of X-Men: The Last Stand, so we're tragically not too shocked at his behavior - but we certainly think that this should be a wake-up call to everyone in this industry who continues to give him work!

Disgusting!
