Eddie Murphy Says He’ll Be the Worst Oscar Host Ever

We all know that Eddie Murphy is hosting the upcoming Oscars show, but he finally commented on the new gig during an interview about his new film, Tower Heist. Naturally, people are talking about his new hosting gig over the new Brett Ratner film.

“I’m going to be horrendous. I’m going to be the worst host ever,” Murphy exclaimed.

He’s a bit of a controversial choice, especially because he stormed out of the 2007 Oscars after he didn’t win Best Supporting Actor for his role in Dreamgirls. In all truth he might be the perfect fit to host the Oscars, just like Ricky Gervais fits so well hosting the Golden Globes.

“I think it’s so funny that people think I’m perfect for this,” Murphy said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

He may not think so, but many people do. I know he’s been making some poor films for the past several years, with a few gems sprinkled here and there, but the man is still one of the funniest comedians of all time. When he’s on stage with a mic in his had, he’s a bad man (see Delirious or Raw for reminders).

“It’s just going to be me introducing people and looking straight on [the camera],” Murphy said. “And I’m going to wear a powdered sky-blue tuxedo, and at the end of the evening, I’m going to urinate on myself in front of a billion people. Just letting you know –  the worst host ever.”

That already sounds better than the entire Oscars show last year.
