The comedian was initially tapped to present the ceremony, but backed out after producer Brett Ratner stepped down. Billy Crystal was ultimately hired to replace him.
Murphy insisted that Crystal did a "great job", but added that he would have paced the show differently had he been in charge.
"It would be a little quicker with me driving," he told Extra.
Murphy revealed that he still has hopes of hosting the Academy Awards someday.
The actor was rumoured to be dating Toni Braxton, but has since denied it.
"I haven't been on an actual traditional date in quite some time; I'm due," he told the website. "I'm going to take someone on a date really soon."
