Is the Obvious tag busy running a joke into the ground for 20 minutes?

Let's go back to that thing they did in the 70s where they had four or five hosts and kind of spread the biatching around.

You know he was getting blitzed in the back.

And I also enjoyed Seth McFarlane.

I enjoyed him as host.  Hell, he was the only reason I watched that industry circle-jerk last year.  With him gone I don't see a reason to watch again.

Just my two cents.  And not my boobs.

I'm still rooting for Statler and Waldorf from the Muppets.  No on-stage host, just those two ragging on every speech and musical number.

Didn't he say from the very beginning (when he was first asked to host) that this was only going to be a one-time deal?

That would be fun, but you have to have Fozzey Bear give the Oscar for best Comedy.

Just have Kermit host...that way, you have an excuse to have ALL of the Muppets throughout the night.

And a good excuse to sing Rainbow Connection.

Daniel Day Lewis was the second actor to be nominated for portraying Abraham Lincoln . . . and the joke that followed was solid gold.

Agreed. He's about the only one in recent years who seems to actually appreciate the old movies.

/Billy Crystal and his montages of "Look at me, look at me!" can suck my cawk.

The bridge is being shipped to me next week. He was pretty convincing about the weed thing though. He came across as an overachiever-type.

I hate Seth McFarlane with a burning passion. It's not all about politics, you idiotic farkup!
 
2013-05-21 12:13:09 PM
Why the whole "we must have a comedian" thing anyway? Why not get some ultra elegant elder statesman to present the awards, minimize the host-telling-jokes time, and use the extra few seconds to allow the people with special effects oscars to thank their moms without the orchestra playing over them?

Raymond Massey was nominated in 1940.  But the first actor to really get inside of Lincoln's head was John Wilkes Booth.

Ah, yeah. Still manages to make me smile.

I did find his introduction of Christopher Plummer which spoofed "The Sound of Music" to be pretty funny.

The problem with the Oscars isn't that it's not funny, it's that it's no longer a good judge about movie quality. Too many flash-in-the-pan films that sweep many categories but are immediately forgotten. Seriously, when was the last time you watched "The Cider House Rules"?

2013-05-21 12:29:55 PM
Yeah the Lincoln joke is something I would expect to hear down at Laffy McFunny's Humorama and Good Time Emporium.

And McFarlane is proof that crassness sells; it's the lowest-common-denominator of comedy.
 
2013-05-21 12:30:02 PM
I can't remember the last time I actually watched the Oscars.  It's a nice excuse to throw a cocktail party but mind-numbingly boring.  Needs more song and dance, like the Tony's.

Actually, most of America's major problems are caused by politics. Mainly conservative politics.
 
2013-05-21 12:34:22 PM
McFarlane was great. I laugh that the snotty too-cool-for-school hoy polloy got mocked and were unable to laugh at themselves. Really endeared themselves to the lowly general public.

ftfa: "Jamie Lee Curtis called it a "public execution"". Oh F*ck off, get a life.

Why do people watch The Oscars? And why do actors think it means anything? All the awards are bought and paid for, or gotten through political manouvering. It's completely meaningless.

Blame "Oscar season."  Bunch of indie tear jerkers and sweeping self indulgent big budget epics hoping to ride the critic's momentum to the nominations voting deadline without giving any time for reflection.  There needs to be a five year waiting period like in sports halls of fame so that hopefully clearheaded reflection can prevail over in the moment snap judgements.  Of course then Hollywood people wouldn't get the immediate satisfaction of an ego handy from their peers, so that'll never happen.

2013-05-21 12:38:41 PM
I have no problem with MacFarlane, but I also think the idea of "hey, let's have a crass and pulls-no-punches jokester really slam celebrities in their faces!" is a bit immature.

Sure, go ahead and make fun of them and I'll laugh, but the fact people actually masturbate to the idea of stuffy A-listers "needing" their comeuppance or something is just weird and overly angsty to me.
 
2013-05-21 12:39:02 PM
Seth wasn't even the first choice this year. It was supposed to be Eddie Murphy, but he dropped out after Brett Ratner got fired.

That would've been a sight to see.

There was an article about the 10 worst Best Picture winners.  At some point in the 1970s, the Academy started to confuse the Nobel Peace Prize with the Best Picture Oscar.

He is. The performance was commentary on the banality and hubris of the ceremony.

I have to give credit to the folks who keep asking for the Muppets to host the show.  Toss in Hugh Jackman and you've got something for everyone.

Lots of hate for Seth here. Is this kind of hosting only cool when Ricky Gervais does it, or do Brits get a free pass being vulgar trolls?

/actually liked both but testing the waters about this
