Eddie Murphy Oscars Host

Eddie Murphy Oscars Host, The Nutty Professor star Eddie Murphy says he still wants to host the Oscars despite dropping out of this year’s ceremony.
The 50-year-old funnyman was set to make his debut as the host of the Academy Awards, but stepped down when Oscars producer Brett Ratner resigned after coming under fire for using a homophobic slur at a press conference, reported Ace Showbiz.
Oscars regular Billy Crystal stepped in to front the event but Murphy says he has not given up hope of hosting the show in the future.
“It is still something that I would like to do one day, because all the best comics have done it. It is one of the few things I haven not done in my 35 years in this business, so I would like to have that be part of my resume as well,” he said.
Murphy is adamant he and Ratner would have given the ceremony a much-needed boost, revealing they had big plans to make the evening a music-focused extravaganza.
“The other award shows – the Grammys and the American Music Awards – all those music shows, they pop. So there is no reason why the Oscars can’t pop too. You have got 10 songs that are up for Song of the Year, so you should have killer musical performances and so the show should be moving and Brett had all these ideas about it.
