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.
