UPDATED: Only three months before the Oscars, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences and ABC are almost back to square one. Hours after Brett Ratner tendered his resignation as Oscar producer in the fallout of racy-bordering-on-vulgar public comments and the use of an anti-gay slur, Eddie Murphy has stepped down as host.

FRIDAY 10:45 PM, 2ND UPDATE: It’s Russell Brand (Warner Bros’ Arthur remake vs Russell Brand (Universal’s holdover Hop) atop this weekend’s North American box office. How often does that happen? My bet is: never again now that Arthur is limping, looking helpless to earn the $18+M Hollywood thought it would this weekend.
