Eddie Murphy’s exit as the host of the 84th Academy Awards opened the door for a new emcee and Billy Crystal, who previously had said he would like to host the Oscars one more time, has tweeted that he will be back!
Earlier today, he sent out the following message: “Am doing the Oscars so the young woman in the pharmacy will stop asking my name when I pick up my prescriptions. Looking forward to the show.”
Crystal is one of the best hosts the Oscars have ever had and it is great to hear the he will be back for his ninth time. There should actually be some funny stuff!
The 2012 Academy Awards will air Sunday, Feb. 26 on ABC.
