That's enough, Seth MacFarlane.

Yeah, he was actually funny in those roasts, as opposed to Ricky Gervaise, who everyone thinks is funny on these award shows but he's actually just a dick.

Being a dick is the essence of Ricky Gervaise's character portrayal. And he was brilliant at it in The Office and Extras

This will be the first Oscar telecast in about 15 years I'll be watching. I hope he offends everyone and pisses the viewers at home off.
 
2012-10-01 03:12:32 PM  
It'll be awesome when he wins sixteen Oscars for Ted.
 
2012-10-01 03:37:02 PM  
you just know that they'll have Mila Kunis up there presenting something....and then he'll throw a "shut up, Meg" her way.

and this is why it will be such an epic fail. People who LIKE Seth McFarlane are going to be crushed and disappointed by how much he "sells out" by toning down his usual stuff and generally acts respectful and adult-like. People who don't know him and tune into the Oscars expecting the likes of Billy Crystal, will be shocked and horrified by hsi vulgar comedy and juvenile antics

Hmmm...looks like my streak of not watching the Oscars will continue for another year.

They got MacFarlane in order to add that element of danger that Gervais provided at the Golden Globes. Oooh, what's he going to say? Well, not a whole fark of a lot. These are the Oscars. Gervais himself said he wouldn't have gotten away with what he did if he'd hosted the Oscars. That's why he said yes to the Globes in the first place. In a world of unnecessary awards shows, it's right up there with the People's Choice.

Or maybe the awards shows are going to just hire atheists from now on.

How long until some right-winger or Christian poo-pants complains about THAT aspect of MacFarlane's hiring.

"Hollywood is thumbing its nose at God!!!"

I wouldn't care except I thought he was FANTASTIC on Saturday Night Live, so I might actually watch.

The Oscars work best when the MC is witty but unoffensive. It's supposed to be a celebration of the movies that we love this year and years past. It's not supposed to be a roast of self-absorbed actors, directors and producers.

i think that depends on what metric you use to measure "working best." using tv ratings would probably lead one to believe the roasting angle works better than the unoffensive celebration angle.

How could you possibly watch a bunch of self-congradulatory bullshiat without the roast aspect? It's farking unwatchable when they have Crystal or another washed-up comedian hosting.
 
2012-10-01 05:26:01 PM  

Keep your finger on the mute button as Seth attempts the same song and dance numbers as Hugh Jackman or Neil Patrick Harris - actual Broadway musical actors.

He thinks he's Sinatra.

ecx.images-amazon.com
"Recorded at the legendary Capitol Records, the album was made with MacFarlane singing live in the same room as the orchestra, just as they did in 50's. Additionally, Frank Sinatra's original microphone "nicknamed The Frank", on loan from the Smithsonian, was used to record the album. All songs were recorded to analog tape, to match the warm sound of the historic records of that era."
Linky for samples - Not safe for prolonged listening
  Facepalm.

I hope he does the Uma/Oprah bit. I loved that.
 
2012-10-01 05:30:04 PM  
The Oscars are boring no matter which douche they get to bland down their personality for hosting duty.

MacFarlane has such a punchable face, so I might tune into the show to enjoy imagining how my fist would look smashed into his face.

/still would fark him, though
//him and his girlfriend

Because it's not a farking ROAST. It's a farking AWARDS CEREMONY. Normally, during awards ceremonies, there's a lot of congratulatory speeches going on.

If we're going for ratings instead of an actual good awards show, then book the Honey Boo Boo family on there as MC's. The goddamn ratings will go through the roof.
 
2012-10-01 05:44:03 PM  
Oh man this will be rich!!! Can not wait!!! I hope he does the voices from that show with the lovable idiot, hot wife, loser son, daughter that hates the dad, miniature sadist and the non-human best friend!!!
 
2012-10-01 05:44:39 PM  
-- oversleeps and misses his flight scheduled to be one of the planes that hit the wtc

-- gets to host the Oscars

-- hitting Khallesi

I hope the Devil enjoys receiving Seth MacFarlane's soul in 50 years. He certainly got a contract from this one.
 
2012-10-01 05:45:09 PM  
The Oscars will continue to suck until we reach the point where every winner goes full Joe Pesci. Dear Hollywood - nobody gives a shiat about your agent, your family, how much you love god, your shiatty wisdom, or your fake quirky rehearsed stories. At this point, they might as well just quit the live telecasts, do the ceremony in the afternoon, and show a 1-hour highlight special in primetime.

You're missing the point -- it's boring as hell. If they want to have a private ceremony and make it dull, fine. But if it's going on TV it needs to be entertaining.
 
2012-10-01 05:50:37 PM  
I really enjoyed his speech at that college where he made fun of everyone including the guys from South Park, but he went from zero to Holocaust joke in like 60 seconds during his television special and it was boring and trite. So this could go either way, I think, but this feels like a bunch of old guys trying to connect with THE KIDZZZZZ.

don't tempt fate. i don't think they are worried about maximizing ratings, but there's a mendoza line that they've gotten dangerously close to in recent years.

I'm forced by the wife to sit through the Emmys and Oscars every year. The Golden Globes I actually don't mind so much, since everyone is generally a few sheets to the wind and seemingly having a good time. Less 'reverent' and bullshiatty. I like Family Guy, but American Dad has been better since it's second season. Ted was...okay.

At least it's not Billy Crystal...i ABHOR Billy Crystal. It's like he deliberately tries to not be funny. I don't even find him smirk-worthy. Maybe it's just his super-inoffensive modern guy from NYC in the late 1980's vibe. Maybe the unfunniest Jew of all time. He's very punchable. Similarly, I cannot stand Martin Short, but don't feel even a bit of ill-will towards him. Not sure what the difference is, though. I mean, they have slightly different styles, but I'm rambling. I'd love for Larry David to host one year. He'd hate doing it, but the level of uncomfortability (uncomfortableness?) would be amazing. Also lots of undercover snark. Love me some LD, Curb's last season suck-fest aside. Hell, have him co-host with JB Smoove, who would brings the ruckus.
 
2012-10-01 05:56:01 PM  
Don't get the hate for Seth MacFarlane. His hosting gig on Saturday Night Live last week was excellent. He was classy, endearing, and didn't try to outshine or distract the main characters, but did his best to complement them. He's also been the best Roastmaster on those Roast shows lately. I'll definitely tune in to the Oscars this year.

I prefer the Independent Spirit Awards. Even if you don't care about the movies, it's uncensored and sponsored by liquor companies, so everyone is wasted.

To get an idea of it, just YouTube when Sarah Silverman hosted and Mickey Rourke's Best Actor speech.
 
2012-10-01 06:02:25 PM  
Well, at least this will make the show a little bit more watchable.

The wife has decided that all awards shows as well as shows like The Voice, American Idol, America Got talent, Duets, So You Think You Can Dance, etc must be watched in order to balance out my sports watching and game playing.

We now got DVR (used to only have OTC) so maybe she'll start giving me a break on some of the shows... a man can dream, right?

I don't think I remember them not being in a tent. I did like the "In Memoriam" they did for people they thought were going to die over the next year, though.

It's nice to see an awards show where they don't take themselves seriously.
 
2012-10-01 06:24:36 PM  
Meh, I don't really care for him or his shows. Honestly, I only ever watched the Oscars when they had The Lord of the Rings up for a bunch of awards, and when I had a party to go to. One of the guys in our extended group of friends held an awesome party for the Oscars (except the year it was over Spring Break - then he held it for the Golden Globes), complete with a contest on who could guess the winners and, of course, a drinking game for the speeches.
