While Hollywood doesn’t seem interested in balancing the lack of Black representation on the big screen, the Academy is happy to have us host the awards show. According to HumorMillmag.com, Eddie Murphy is confirmed to host the 84th Academy Awards in February of 2012.

The Oscars will be the first time Murphy has taken the stage to perform any kind of stand-up in over twenty years. He is currently starring in the up-coming movie Tower Heist, Directed by Brett Ratner. Ratner is reported to be producing the Awards as well.

The last African-American to host the Oscars was Chris Rock in 2004. Whoopi Goldberg has hosted four Oscars with her last being in 2001.
