Murphy Quits Oscars
Eddie Murphy has pulled out of presenting the Oscars. Producer Brett Ratner resigned yesterday so the news doesn’t come as a shock.
The official statement from Murphy has been released:
“First and foremost I want to say that I completely understand and support each party’s decision with regard to a change of producers for this year’s Academy Awards ceremony. I was truly looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I’m sure that the new production team and host will do an equally great job.”
