Eddie Murphy has withdrawn as the host Oscar ceremony. Next year’s Oscars show is the 84th Academy Awards, at which Hollywood’s most coveted prizes, the famous golden statuettes, are handed out and is scheduled for February 26, 2012.

Star comedian Eddie Murphy has quit as host of next year’s Oscars show, following his long-time producer Brett Ratner who resigned after making an anti-gay insult, organizers said Wednesday. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Tom Sherak announced Murphy’s departure a day after Ratner, director of current box office hit ‘Tower Heist’, in which Murphy stars. While Ratner quit as producer of the February show, his friend Eddie followed his footsteps.

Academy President Tom Sherak supported Eddie Murphy decision to step down saying that he appreciates how Eddie feels about losing his creative partner, Brett Ratner. Meanwhile, Eddied quoted that first and foremost he want to say that he can completely understand and support each party’s decision with regard to a change of producers for this year’s Academy Awards ceremony.

Eddie added that he is looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but it will not going to be the host anymore. He guaranteed that the new production team and host will do an equally great job. The issue was first started when Ratner replied saying that ‘rehearsing is for fags’, during the press conference asked about ahead rehearsals ahead of the film shoot.

However, Brett Ratner appointed Eddie Murphy as the host of 2012 Oscars, when he was the producer of the 2012 awards ceremony. Everyone thought that Eddie Murphy as the perfect choice for hosting for the 2012 Oscar ceremony.  Now, with Eddie and Ratner quits for the award show, correspondents say Murphy’s resignation could be a setback for the Academy Awards.
