Changes at the Oscars

Oscar Night - No Gay-Bashing and Actually Funny
Brett Ratner resigned as producer of the 84th Annual Academy Awards in the wake an uproar from anti-gay comments that he made. The Academy released a statement saying, in summary, that they wished him well but that derogatory comments such as his had comments.

Soon after, it was announced that Eddie Murphy had resigned as host of the Oscars. He was, of course, a longtime creative partner of Mr. Ratner's.

Personally, I think this is a great combination of resignations. It means that there probably won't be any gay-bashing at the Oscars this year and we'll be able to get a host who is actually funny.
