Eddie Murphy Out as Next Year's Oscar Host

Brett Ratner's resignation from producing the 84th annual Academy Awards has resulted in another departure – that of his Oscar host, Eddie Murphy, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Tom Sherak announced Wednesday.

"I appreciate how Eddie feels about losing his creative partner, Brett Ratner, and we all wish him well," Sherak said in a release from the Academy.

Murphy also released a statement through AMPAS: "First and foremost I want to say that I completely understand and support each party's decision with regard to a change of producers for this year's Academy Awards ceremony. I was truly looking forward to being a part of the show that our production team and writers were just starting to develop, but I'm sure that the new production team and host will do an equally great job."

Brett Ratner Resigns 2012 Oscars – Will Eddie Murphy Follow?

"He did the right thing for the Academy and for himself," Academy President Tom Sherak said in a statement, regarding Ratner's resignation. "Words have meaning, and they have consequences. Brett is a good person, but his comments were unacceptable. We all hope this will be an opportunity to raise awareness about the harm that is caused by reckless and insensitive remarks, regardless of the intent."
