Well then Steve Guttenberg's character in "Police Academy" won't be producing the Academy Awards broadcast, either.

BTW, why would they hire a director of crummy movies to produce their show? Was it not bad enough last year?

Oh, and now that homophobic closeted trannie lover, imo, Eddie Murphy, is out, too.

Good. I watch the Academy Awards whether I want to or not, and Eddie Murphy hosting would have made it far more arduous than it usually is.
