Brian Grazer to Take Over Oscars

The Academy has hired Hollywood producer Brian Grazer to take over the Oscars after firing loudmouth Brett Ratner. Unlike Ratner, who is known most for poorly reviewed blockbusters like Rush Hour and X-Men: The Last Stand, Grazer has produced more serious films like A Beautiful Mind and the upcoming J. Edgar. His first job will be to find a new host, since Eddie Murphy quit not long after Ratner’s firing.
