Move over Anne Hathaway and James Franco (thank goodness!), Eddie Murphy has been confirmed as the next host of Academy Awards ceremony in February 2012.

The 84th Academy Awards will be hosted by the comedian, who has previously been nominated for an Oscar himself in 2006 for his role in Dreamgirls.

Brett Ratner, co-producer of the Oscars, said in a statement: “Eddie is a comedic genius, one of the greatest and most influential live performers ever.

“With his love of movies, history of crafting unforgettable characters and his iconic performances – especially on stage – I know he will bring excitement, spontaneity and tremendous heart to the show Don and I want to produce in February.”

We’re looking forward to it… it can’t be worse than Franco’s efforts this year.

What do you think? Will he do a good job?
