Who Should Replace Eddie Murphy as Oscars Host? Your Suggestions

Who should replace Eddie Murphy as Oscars Host?After a whirlwind of controversy, producer Brett Ratner resigned from his producer post with the Oscars, and now host Eddie Murphy has parted ways with the Academy Awards as well.

UPDATE: Brian Grazer has accepted the job as Oscar producer, replacing Ratner, which the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences confirms. "It's very gratifying to be part of a show that honors excellence in the medium to which I have devoted so much of my career, said Grazer.

There's no word on who will replace Murphy yet ... but that's where you come in.

AOL TV fans on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr have come alive with suggestions, including popular choices like The Muppets and Tina Fey.

I am an italian man. I am an engineer in Italy and I deal me of planning and structural calculation and of housebuilding. My site internet is: http://www.calcolostrutture.net .
I think that Eddy Murphy is one of the best comic actors to the world. Very beautiful and very amusing his films: " An armchair for two" and "The prince looks for wife". Dreams film!

Please DON'T put again Jane lynch ,the last awards she present was boring and tedious,shes a good on tv but not as a tv host, neither Tina Fey. From what i have read in this page I do agree with : ELLEN DEGENERES
or HUGH JACKMAN ( love his performance as a TV Host ) SETH MACFARLANE would be my other two choice

I'd say Amy Poehler and Tina Fey should do it together. Fey is always best when Amy's around.

A cardboard cut-out of Billy Crystal would be better choice than Eddie Murphy.
