Eddie’s Out! 5 People Who Should Replace Him as Host of the Oscars

0 1

Now that Eddie Murphy is out as host of the Oscars… yes, he resigned. Right after Brett Ratner resigned. Right after he said that anti-gay slur. Catch up people! So, now that Eddie is out, who can the Academy get to replace him on such short notice? We’ve got some ideas. 1. Justin Bieber. Kids don’t watch the Oscars, but kids love Bieber. It’s a perfect way to get the youth audience and old people will watch no matter who hosts. 2. Neil Patrick Harris. As Barney Stinson. His gig hosting the Tony’s was great, but it lacked bro-code and sexist jokes. 3. Melissa McCarthy. Everyone loves McCarthy, plus she’s been everywhere this year, from Bridesmaids to the Emmys. Oh yeah, and she’s actually funny. 4. Steven Colbert. If he bombs (unlikely) he can just blame it on all those Hollywood liberals. 5. Keyboard Cat. No pesky writers, not flat jokes, just a little cat rocking out.
