Is Eddie Murphy In Talks to Host the Oscars?

Sources close to Academy Awards officials  say comedian and actor Eddie Murphy is being considered to host the Oscars in February.

The move is seen as an effort to return to basics — in other words, have one funny act head up the entire ceremony. In years past, the Academy has experimented with different hosting ideas, culminating in the somewhat questionable move this year that saw actors James Franco and Anne Hathaway emceeing what many called a disastrous show.

All Time Oscar Snubs

My personal pick for this list happened last year, when Hurt Locker beat Avatar. I thought it was a travesty not because Hurt Locker wasn't good, because it was, but more because Avatar had it all!! It showed me something I had never seen before, the story was great, the acting was good/very good. I figured the film that broke so much ground was a shoe-in, but I was wrong. Here is a list of what Time magazine thought were the biggest Oscar Snubs.

Oscar Winners: ‘The King’s Speech’ Reigns, Portman Soars

There weren't a whole lot of surprises at the 83rd Academy Awards -- as expected, "The King's Speech" took the big prize as Best Picture. The film about King George VI overcoming his stutter also garnered a Best Actor statue for Colin Firth and a Best Director win for Tom Hooper.

"King"'s four statuettes tied "Inception," which also nabbed four awards in technical categories, for the most Oscars.

Oscar favorite Natalie Portman also took home the Best Actress statuette for her role in "Black Swan," and Melissa Leo and Christian Bale of "The Fighter" cleaned up in the supporting role categories.

James Franco and Anne Hathaway’s Opening Monlogue For The Oscars [VIDEO]

James Franco and Anne Hathaway were certainly outside-the-box picks to host the 83rd annual Academy Awards.  And after a pre-taped opening in which they tried to elicit advice from last year's host Alec Baldwin by channeling his dreams, “Inception” - style, the duo weren’t required to do a whole lot of heavy lifting in their opening monologue.

In it, they made reference to how their youth was intended to appeal to a new younger demographic.  Then  they spent a good chunk of the monologue acknowledging their elders:  Hathaway had a conversation with her mother, who was in the audience, and Franco did the same with his grandmother.  Read on to check it out.

This Year’s Biggest Oscar Underdogs

While the press always thinks they know who the Academy Award winners will be, an underdog or two usually manages to snatch a statuette away from the favorite. Just last year, little-seen indie film "The Hurt Locker" upset James Cameron's blockbuster "Avatar" for Best Film.

In 2002, 29-year-old Adrien Brody upset Oscar perennials Jack Nicholson and Daniel Day-Lewis to win Best Actor. Marisa Tomei's win in 1992 was so unexpected, a rumor spread that presenter Jack Palance announced the wrong name.

Who will be the biggest surprise winner this year? Here are five of the biggest underdogs in their categories. Any one of has the potential to make Oscar upset history on February 28th.
