Eddie Murphy's rep/paid lair has come out today defending the Oscar nominee's behavior at the Academy Awards on Sunday. After Alan Arkin beat out Murphy in the Best Supporting Actor Category Eddie Murphy left the auditorium and didn't go to any of the post Oscar bashes.
"Eddie had always planned on leaving after his category was announced to spend the rest of the evening with his family. He did the same thing following the Golden Globe Awards."Storming out of the Oscars isn't cool. Most people don't leave after their category and miss their co-stars big performance. Ah "Norbit" wasn't the best idea was it Eddie.
