Eddie Murphy to Host Oscars

Eddie Murphy has been named the host of the 84th Annual Academy Awards which will air on February 26, 2012.

Now I know that Murphy has had some success the voice of Donkey in the Shrek movies and getting a Best Supporting Actor nomination for Dreamgirls a few years back. But Murphy hasn’t been funny since Beverly Hills Cop. I would have preferred to have seen Billy Crystal come back but it would appear that train has left the station.

Well, the dynamic duo of Anne Hathaway and James Franco didn’t work out so well this year so the bar has been set pretty low. Either this gig puts Murphy back on the A list or gives him a pass to the D train.
