Actor\Comedian Eddie Murphy will host the 84th Academy Awards(Oscars) ceremony on February 26, 2012…

em It’s been officially announced via the official website for the Academy Awards aka the Oscars (Oscars.org), the film industries most prestigious award ceremony, that actor\comedian Eddie Murphy will host its 84th annual ceremony on February 26, 2012.  Falling in line with a recent trend of theatrical musical numbers from its hosts over the last couple of years, I think Mr. Murphy will prove the perfect fit for the 2012 telecast given his wide range of musical, comedic and dramatic performances over the years. 

As a former Oscar nominee, Mr. Murphy is also only the 6th African-American(Black) host of the program but the overall 12th time there has been an African-American(Black) host, following in the footsteps of Sammy Davis Jr. (who hosted twice), Diana Ross, Richard Pryor (who hosted 3 times), Whoopi Goldberg (who has hosted a whooping 4 times) and Chris Rock.  One thing is for sure, the 2012 Oscars will be full of comedy, music, theatrics and over-the-top antics we have come to love from Eddie’s illustrious career!  Hmm, I may just to have to host an Oscars party next February, because I know we will be entertained!
