Comedian turn actor Eddie Murphy as been tapped to host the 84th Academy Award in 2012. Eddie throughout his lengthy career as only been nominated for the prestigious award once. It was believed that the actor would win the award for his role as Jimmy Earle in the 2006 film ‘Dreamgirls’.
Murphy will bring a fresh face and concept to the show that as suffered from bad host and a decline in ratings in the previous years.
I will be watching.
