Poll results: Cheers for Eddie Murphy as Oscar host

Eddie Murphy Oscars Academy Awards
The choice of Eddie Murphy as Oscar host gets strong approval in the Awards Tracker poll that went up earlier today. About 64% of respondents said they believe he is a great selection, or at least a satisfactory one, while only 17% (551 votes out of 3,055) replied "Noooooo way."

Nearly half of respondents -- 48% (1,492 votes) –- say Murphy is a "fantastic" choice. Slightly more than 15% (478 votes) say he's an "OK" selection. Other poll options: "Maybe. Let's see if someone comes up with a better idea" (13%) and "I don't feel strongly about Murphy one way or the other" (5%).

Sample reader comments in reply to the poll:

Cari Kotcher: "Yes! No brainer!"

Cliffor Correll: "If Eddie Murphy or Billy Crystal host it's sure to be funny!"

Craig Ballard: "Too bad he wasn't cast to host it during the apex of his career. Regardless, he couldn't be worse than any of his predecessors."

Ray Zirkle: "Eddie Murphy stopped being funny in a 'live' situation 20 years ago. If it was the Eddie from 'SNL' or 'Beverly Hills Cop' then."
