It has been suggested that the former king of the big screen, Eddie Murphy is being lined up to host the biggest awards ceremony of the year, the Oscars. According to a source, the Academy Awards team want funny man Eddie, as his experience and knowledge are second to none.
The insider explained, “Nobody knows movies better or is a bigger cinephile than Eddie. Eddie can quote scenes from every single movie word for word. He can bring all that experience to hosting." However, should Eddie reject the opportunity, they have back up options.
It has been claimed that Oprah Winfrey would be the second choice and it has even been rumoured that the two could co host the Oscars. Whoever, does take it on can do no worse than last year’s shambles. It is still early days yet and the names being thrown around are purely speculation. Who would you like to see host the Oscars?
