Eddie Murphy’s Oscar Comeback

By Richard Pizarro

Eddie Murphy may be on the verge of a comeback. With rumors swarming the Internet that Murphy might host the upcoming Oscar’s, it was officially announced that he will host the 84th Academy Awards. It comes as no surprise that Brett Ratner, who just finished directing Tower Heist with Murphy, is producing the Oscar telecast. Will we see the Eddie Murphy we’ve come to know and love from his famous comedy shows, Raw and Delirious, or a more censored Murphy.

Murphy has been planning to return to stand-up for years, and this is just might be the way to revamp a career that has been plagued by such films as Norbit and The Adventures of Pluto Nash. Both films having a combined score of 15% on Rotten Tomatoes. Murphy’s last Oscar appearance was in 2006 when he stormed out of the show for not receiving the Best Supporting Actor Award. Although his actions may have been drastic, he should have won the award. My only hope is that Murphy’s hosting of the Oscars reminds people of the time when Murphy was considered the funniest man on the planet.
