    Eddie Murphy to Host Oscars - He will host the 84th edition of the show [an error occurred while processing this directive]

    Comedian/actor Eddie Murphy will host the 84th annual Academy Awards this February.

    In effort to attract a younger audience, actor James Franco and actress Anne Hathaway shared the duties last year. It was a bit of a disaster. So it appears that returning to the formula of having a comedian host the show is the best, safest bet. Remember, Murphy was incredibly raunchy when he began his career and then increasingly softened by starring in family fare, so he's not as outrageous as he once was! He's still fucking hilarious!

    Who do you think should host the Oscars? Is Eddie Murphy a good choice?
