It’s official! The rumors were swirling when Eddie Murphy’s name was put forth to host the 2012 Academy Awards. Now it’s a done deal! The 83rd Annual Academy Award show attempted to draw in a younger audience with the selection of Anne Hathaway and James Franco as last year’s hosts. In my opinion, last year’s award show was a bit of a snooze but on paper it sounded like a good idea. With the selection of Murphy as host, again on paper it sounds like a great idea. Let’s see if it works out, if anything it will generate a lot of buzz.
