The star of "City Slickers" and "Throw Momma from the Train" said Wednesday he has signed on to host the Academy Awards for the eighth time.

"Hello boys," Crystal said at a news conference at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences after leaping astride two enormous statues of the Oscar figurine.

"I'm really excited about coming back," Crystal said about resuming his hosting job for the first time in three years. "I've had a nice, long sleep."

He declined to offer any early speculation about who may win this year's top awards.

"I don't go to the movies," he deadpanned. "Have you seen what they've become?"

Crystal, who often launches the Oscar ceremony with a song-and-dance number poking fun at the top nominees, has won Emmys for his Oscar hosting performances in 1991, 1992 and 1998.
