Murphy Quits as Oscar Host

Murphy and Ratner... The pair quit their posts at the 2012 Oscars

Comedian and actor Eddie Murphy has resigned from hosting the Oscars.

His decision comes a day after producer of the Oscars, Brett Ratner,  resigned over the use of a homophobic term.

Ratner said “rehearsals are for fags” during a Q&A session for his new film, Tower Heist.

Famed for directing the Rush Hour trilogy, staring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, Ratner was due to produce his first Academy Awards this coming February.

His first step as producer was to hire Eddie Murphy to host the show.

This saw a return to the usual format of having a stand up comedian presenting the awards.

The decision was applauded by critics and was seen as a way to halt the declining rating figures that has plagued the Academy Awards over recent years.

However, after Ratner resigned Murphy decided he couldn’t stay after losing his creative partner.

Both the Academy Awards and Eddie Murphy deny it was an acrimonious split.

Ratner was swiftly replaced by legendary Hollywood producer Brian Grazer.

As of yet there is no word on who will replace Eddie Murphy.
