Eddie Murphy who was slated to host the 2012 Oscars has quit!
Brett Ratner resigned as producer of the Oscars and comedian Eddie Murphy who was slated as host for the 84th Academy Awards wasn't far behind him. Ratner's resignation came Tuesday on the coat tails of his use of a gay slur during a movie Q&A this weekend and over-sharing details of his sex life during a recent appearance on Howard Stern. Although Murphy wished the new host and production team well saying, "I was truly looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I'm sure that the new production team and host will do an equally great job," he is staying mum on his true reasons for jumping ship!
So its back to the drawing board for The Oscars! Comment below on who your choice would be for a replacement!
