The speculation is finally over. Eddie Murphy has officially been named the host of the 84th Academy Awards. This is something I definitely think is long overdue. By far, Eddie has proven to be one of the most talented comedians of all time. His blueprint is one that countless successful comedians have followed.

Here is what he had to say about the honor:

"I am enormously honored to join the great list of past Academy Award hosts from Hope and Carson to Crystal, Martin and Goldberg, among others," said Murphy. "I'm looking forward to working with Brett and Don on creating a show that is enjoyable for both the fans at home and for the audience at the Kodak Theatre as we all come together to celebrate and recognize the great film contributions and collaborations from the past year."
