And if anybody thinks McFarlane was bad or that James Franco and Anne Hathaway sucked when they hosted, you must be too young to remember Letterman in 1995. I love David Letterman and have since he first came on the air, but his Oscar hosting gig was absolutely by far the worst ever. EVAR.

A lot Macfarlane hate comes from good ol' fashioned envy.

Suck on it, haters.

G Love: SlothB77: The people that like Seth MacFarlane comedy and the people that watch the Oscars have very little overlap.  He brought in a new audience, but offended the base.

I think my favorite part was watching all of the distinguished actresses blush when he mentioned which movies they got naked in.


The reaction shots were staged.


Its disturbing how many people were unable to understand this.

Anyone who thought making Les Mis into a movie doesn't get a dog in this fight.

elvindeath: Get psyched.  You all know Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the Oscars soon.


If they go with the late night guy route again, I'd rather Craig Ferguson over Kimmel.

Oh, yeah, BTW: anyone have the lyrics to that song? For um, uh, research purposes.

Wow, coming through in spades! Thank you for that.

And by the way, I thought MacFarlane was fantastic, and did a brilliant job of poking the Hollywood elite just enough to make them a bit uncomfortable. He's a genius at that sort of thing, obviously.

I'm about 99% sure that the "Seth McFarlane was a terrible oscar host" narrative was established somewhere around the time it was announced he was going to host and what we are seeing in the media is one of those increasingly frequent events where the fact that people can hop online and discuss the stories they are pushing is demonstrating how for so many years they got away with basically reporting whatever suited them.

I had a good example of this at work recently. We got a new group executive and she wanted to make some changes before she even sat down in the chair based off of whatever perposterous ideas she had in her head from talking to the other GE's. Anyway, she did this wonderful piece of kabuki theater where she had us run some workshops where the conclusion was basically foregone at the start "no one knows what their job responsibilities are and who does what across the other teams."

She actually got up infront of everyone and said this, also cited it as a reason why she was making some changes to the group structure.

Funny thing is - everyone who participated in the workshop and was asked about it later by various managers had the absolute opposite opinion: Basically they were really impressed by how well everyone knew each others jobs.

This is the kind of baloney the media companies have been pushing for years. The only real change is that now we have forums like the internet where a huge amount of people can get together and compare notes and go, "Hey! I'm not so sure about that!"

Remember how they also said Colbert bombed at the Whitehouse Correspondance Dinner :)

I think he did a fine job.  For me, it was nice to see a fresh face other than the "safe" 80's/90's comical stylings of Whoopy and Billy Crystal.

  If the biggest complaint is that he was making sexist jokes, this sounds like the first Oscars in my lifetime that I might have actually found semi-amusing.
