I'm wondering why they even feel the need to have a host at all. There are presenters for each award and musical act...the host's only purpose seems to be to open and close the show, introduce the presenters (which is really redundant), and make some poor attempts at jokes from time to time. Skip the host, use a voice-over announcer to keep things moving along when needed, and bring the show in at 2 hours.

He wasn't that bad. I agree that they should go for less comedian, more stage/musical type host. They just need to kill any producer who tries to ram down their own shiatty movie musical montage to boost DVD sales so they can buy some more coke. They have the Globes, People's, MTV, etc awards to try and sell product, use the Academy Awards to actually reward great movie making. And make sure Animated Feature voters actually watch all the nominees, at gunpoint, before they crassly vote for the one w/ the Pixar label. Brave was shiat, Wreck-it-Ralph was brilliant, you're all stupid.

Bith Set Me Up: 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"?


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.

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.

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?

I thought he was a terrible host.  I expected him to be "train wreck" bad, but he was instead just bad.

That's not to say I didn't get a couple chuckles out of it.  He just felt out of place and uncomfortable.  He was far more entertaining when he was on stage as Ted.

Honestly, has the Oscars even been a good judge about movie quality ? They gave awards to lots of flash-in-the-pan actors and movies in their early days. Honestly, who remembers "The broadway melody" ? Who can understand how "How green was my valley" got the upper-hand on Citizen Kane ? Who honestly think that "The greatest show on Earth" was a better movie than "High Noon" or "The quiet man" ?

un4gvn666: RKade: I hate Seth McFarlane with a burning passion. It's not all about politics, you idiotic farkup!

Actually, most of America's major problems are caused by politics. Mainly conservative politics.


I have zero shiats to give about which side of the aisle he's on (I'm a minarchist so my leanings will never make it here.) I'm just tired of hearing about it every single farktastic time he opens his cum receptacle. He ruined Family Guy. He ruined every roast he's been on. I hate him personally and I'm sick of him.

For context, he's worse than Rush Limbaugh because at least Rush Limbaugh keeps to his stupid show..

darkedgefan: That is a shame. He was so good as the host last Feb. I love it when Hollywood gets made fun of. How could you not watch Family Guy and die laughing? No, Seth, host again!


It is easy if you are referring to new episodes. If you are talking pre-cancellation Family Guy, then I would agree. New ones just try too hard to be edgy and it's stupid

If he would co-host with Kristen Bell, I'd pay money to see it.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. I actually stayed awake through the Golden Globes.

Amy: "Kathryn Bigelow's nominated tonight. I haven't really been following the controversy over Zero Dark Thirty, but when it comes to torture, I trust the lady who spent three years married to James Cameron."

Tina: "Anne Hathaway, you gave a stunning performance in Les Miserables. I have not seen someone so totally alone and abandoned like that since you were on stage with James Franco at the Oscars."

DjangoStonereaver: Though he was no teetotaller, Ol' Dino never put anything other than iced tea in his bottles on stage and
never worked drunk. It was all an act.


That part always amazes me, that he could go on a weekend bender and just get blitzed off his ass and then settle back down to shoot whatever come Monday.

Of course even he admitted to slowing down tremendously when he had kids

Trocadero: Brave was shiat, Wreck-it-Ralph was brilliant, you're all stupid.


That was a tough call really, both were amazing movies and are equally watchable over time. Both had amazing messages to them, and some very deep thought provoking moments. In the end though I think the simpler message in Brave is what pulled the voters really while the very esoteric message in Wreck it Ralph got lost in the colors.

I said to a friend that this was the first year that honestly had some serious competition for Pixar. For years they might as well just have renamed the Award to "This years Pixar movie award"

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.

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.

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.

RoyHobbs22: PizzaJedi81: RoyHobbs22: Daniel Day Lewis was the second actor to be nominated for portraying Abraham Lincoln . . . and the joke that followed was solid gold.

Ohhhh...I remember laughing my ass off, but I dont' remember the actual joke.

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


Feh. Obvious and weak shot at some low-hanging fruit.

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