There is some skepticism surrounding Eddie Murphy's Oscar gig. Personally I'm looking forward to it. There's at least a chance that it will be hilarious/insane. And really, why not him? Why not anybody? It's the fucking Oscars. If it's terrible you get to do it all again next year, and maybe this time you'll get it right. Of course you won't, because you're the Oscars, but we'll tune in to see how you do anyway. You're like the friend with the crappy band who plays out once a year, and you go to see them because they're good people and they share their drink tickets. But I'm not discouraged this year. It could happen. And if it does, and it's a hit, you suddenly have a new Billy Crystal, which is great for everybody. Except Billy Crystal, who will henceforth be known as the old Eddie Murphy.
