Eddie Murphy replacements at Oscars suggested by TV tweeters
In the last 24 hours, Brett Ratner resigned as producer of the 2012 Oscars, Eddie Murphy, his chosen host, followed suit and Brian Grazer came on board as the new producer of this shaky ship. While Hollywood awaits word on who will step into Murphy's shoes to host the award show, TV folks happily tweeted their suggestions — and their willingness to take on the job.
Others weren't waiting to be asked. "Why thank you of course i will step in and host the Oscars polishing up my song and dance routines now," Sandra Bernhard (SandraBernhard) tweeted. "writing my one liners! see you there."
Zach Braff (@zachbraff) of "Scrubs" offered, "If I hosted the Oscars, Hooch would do a dance interpretation of all the nominated songs.
Garry Shandling (@GarryShandling), on the other hand, went with more unconventional proposals. First: "You don't need an Oscar host. The first winner presents 2nd award. That winner presents 3rd award. And so on, till the end. No commercials." Second: "Yes, let's put a scale on stage, and see who loses the most weight in 4 hours. They win the Biggest Loser Oscar."
