Who should host the Oscars?

Who should host the Oscars and why?  Wednesday, Eddie Murphy withdrew as the host of the 2012 Academy Awards.  Eyewitness News wants to know what you think.  Post your comments (below) and they could appear on Eyewitness News First at 4 p.m.



Regis has the talent, the wit, the class, not to mention he knows everybody in the business to pull this off. Regis is the perfect choice.


I think Tom hanks should host the oscars as he has had a tremendous career in film and can think of comments in the blink of an eye!


I think Whoopi Goldberg or Regis Philbin should host the Academy Awards.

Whoopi has the experience as a previous host and an award winner. Regis is an excellent host and it would be a great way to honor him after he leaves Live!

I would love to see Kevin James host the Oscars this year. He has great natural energy & he is hilarious! Or perhaps Jon Cryer. He is doing an excellent job carrying Two and a Half Men. Either would make for a very interesting evening!

i think a great person to fulfill the job would be WHOOPI GOLDBERG. THANK YOU, YOU ALL THE BEST, DONT CHANGR.

Barbara Ann Reilly

The best choice is Regis Philbin. Hopefully ABC will wake up and think so too!
He's entertaining, can sing, and very humorous. It's a no brainer. He's the King of Television.

Regis Philbin, and, Whoopi Goldberg should host the Academy Awards. I think they would be perfect. I know Whoopi said on The View this morning that she would only do it withBilly Crystal, but, maybe, hopefully, she would do it woth Regis. I think that would be wonderful.

I do not think a host is needed for the Oscars. The show would be shorter and the presenters are the people that most viewers want to see, as well as the nominees.


It would be awesome if they bring back Billy Crystal. He was by far the best host since Bob Hope.


Ellen Degeneres should host. She is hysterical! Shes not fresh or vulgar. She did a fabulous job before and should do it again.

who would i like to see to host the oscars whoopi goldberg

Sherri P.

Robin Williams....it would be fast-paced and fun.

B. Lewis

I Think P.Diddy or Alicia Keys Should Host the Oscars. I hoped that Eddie Murphy should be the first African American to host the show. So Now I hoped it will be the first African American Pair next year.

Denise Holiday

I think Whoopee Goldberg should host along with Billy Crystal...That has always been a winning combination!!

Karen and Patrick Moharter

Bring on the Muppets!!!

Dawn Malamon



Billy Crystal and Whoopie Goldberg and if possible Robin Williams. They have a fantastic history together as comedians.

Phil Clarke

How about Ricky Gervais? He's entertaining and edgy and people would listen closely to everything he says, hoping he's say something inapropriate.

Ruth Goldman

I think the Academy should ask Whoopi Goldberg and Billy Crystal to co-host. They would be fantastic together.

Tom Reidy

Co-hosting duties for Hugh Jackman and Neil Patrick Harris. Their number on the Tony awards was genius!

Harvey Johnson

Forget the Muppets. Have Betty White host the Oscars. Shw was good on S.N.L. Betty White is a good choice, Would have been nice if there was a Facebook page for that.


Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley for sure. They do a great job on the CMA Awards

Alexandra Paige

BETTY WHITE!!! Who doesn't love her??


Betty White should host them!


I think Regis Philbin should he will be free im sure!


ME!!! Not a celebrity, no baby (Beiber) drama, no sexual related (Cain) drama, no Penn Drama. Just an average person.

Kenny Du Ren

Neil Patrick Harris needs to step in as host. He is hilarious and awesome when doing any hosting job. NPH needs to do this, or join Live with Kelly as her co-host - both shall do actually :)
