I'd prefer Murphy Brown, or any Murphy other than Eddie, he's just not funny anymore. I hope he proves me wrong though!

Eddie Murphy Exits as Oscar Host : People.com

Brett Ratner's resignation from producing the 84th annual Academy Awards has resulted in another departure that of his Oscar host, Eddie Murphy, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Tom Sherak announced Wednesday.

"I appreciate how Eddie feels about losing his creative partner, Brett Ratner, and we all wish him well," Sherak said in a release from the Academy.

Murphy also released a statement through AMPAS: "First and foremost I want to say that I completely understand and support each party's decision with regard to a change of producers for this year's Academy Awards ceremony. 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."

Ratner's withdrawal came after he had made and then apologized for an anti-gay slur while promoting his movie with Murphy, Tower Heist.

Next year's Oscars will air live on ABC Feb. 26. No replacement for either Ratner or Murphy has been named.

Eddie needs to go back to his roots of R rated stand up, followed by R rated comedies, etc. IMO, he lost his spark after doing those nutty prof/shrek movies.
