Eddie Murphy Might Host the Oscars

Say this for Eddie Murphy: he couldn't be worse than last year's hosts.

Sources tell Deadline that the Academy Awards braintrust will meet this Tuesday to consider the man or woman who will emcee Hollywood's biggest night in 2012 and producer Brett Ratner will start with one name atop his list: Murphy.

“Nobody knows movies better or is a bigger cinephile than Eddie," a source says. "Eddie can quote scenes from every single movie word for word. He can bring all that experience to hosting."

Oprah has also reportedly been under consideration.
