UPDATE: and now Eddie too… CRAZY! Brett Ratner resigns as Oscar producer

Posted on November 8, 2011 by admin | No Comments

UPDATE (11/9):

Looks like Eddie Murphy doesn’t want to do the Oscars with his boy Brett at the helm. He just resigned the spot.

Now… who will take the gig? There’s a campaign on Twitter to get the Muppets to host ( @MuppetOscars )… any other ideas? I’m thinking we need some more little people representation at the big show… I’m throwing Warwick Davis and Peter Dinklage’s names in the hat.

ORIGINAL STORY (11/8):

After using the word “fag” during promo for Tower Heist and getting a little graphic with details on his sex life on Howard Stern and G4′s Attack of the Show, a big ol’ fat question mark was put on whether or not Brett Ratner would remain the producer of the upcoming Oscar ceremony.

Well, that question has been answered. Brett just resigned his position. People are assuming for the moment that Eddie Murphy will remain as the host of the ceremony, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
