Much better choice than Hathaway or Franco, but anyone would be. It's a bit surprising since we haven't heard much from Murphy for a while, but I'd be interested to see him hosting.

I still think Anne Hathaway partnered with Hugh Jackman rather than James Franco would have been :kickass:

I liked Billy Crystal at the beginning, but at some point it seemed to become all about Billy. There was his monologue and then long movie parodies with him in each clip. It took forever to get to the awards.

I agree. Hathaway wasn't terrible, just extremely hyper. Jackman would have been a much better partner, but then, pretty much anyone would have been better than James Franco.

I'm not sure this is a good idea. Eddie has done some pretty edgy routines in the past when he did stand-up, and IIRC also has something of a diva reputation. It might get ugly if he wants to do stuff that the producers or writers think is too "out there" for the Oscars....

Don't worry. Eddie will be on his best behaviors to apologize for "Norbit".

That was young Eddie. Middle-aged Eddie plays the dad in Disney movies.

Wait, isn't Eddie Murphy the one who walked out when he lost a few years back?

Yes, he has really mellowed out since he has had children.
I will tune in just to see. I think that EM has earned a shot to emcee and I wish him the best of luck.

Wow, I forgot he existed. The last I heard about him was when he had the run in with the policy over the …er… lady of the night.

Looking back, I thought Bob Hope was awful, with his cornball jokes.

Agree - he was on tv a lot when I was young, and I always found his humour rather obvious and generic.

Yeah, he was a total cornball. Same with his movies and specials.

That's what made him so popular. Everyone in the 1950's was a little cornball. :lol:

Hmph. He carried it even into the 80s.
