Yes, you read that right. This should be interesting....
I love the choice of Seth for this... can't ******* wait.
Nice choice. Should be a very entertaining show. Knowing Seth, he'll probably follow Hugh Jackman's example and do a musical number or two.
Here's the announcement from the man himself.
Welp, there's one awards show I won't be watching.
Will he be able to find the mic?
Drunken Oscars? I'm in.
MacFarlane is inoffensive and likeable, although I wonder how much the ceremony relies on him doing voices and singing like Sinatra.
MacFarlane is likable?
He did awesome hosting SNL a few weeks ago. Can't wait to see what he can do at the Oscars!
In that he's inoffensive.
He was all right on SNL. I feel like the best stuff on that episode kind of happened around him.
Awesome news- Seth's got a great showbiz personality for hosting. He did a good job on both SNL and the Roasts as host.
Because MacFarlane's entire personality is about as irritating as wiping a diarrhea ass with twelve grit sandpaper.
Obviously you are wrong.
Coming from you, that's quite a compliment.
Not to mention, his humor runs on the side of offensive and he's sexist as heck.
Every single time I have seen him in person, he's been drinking or seemed like he had already drunk something.
But then, a hangover saved him from being on one of the flights that flew into the Twin Towers, so I guess he feels it's justified.
It'll definitely be interesting anyway.
You make it seem like drinking is so terrible to do.
Alcoholism saves lives.
So in other words we can expect more blackface. Joy.
I see they're building on the Hugh Jackman choice by once again not having a comedian.
Hugh Jackman would have been far better then Seth McFarlane.
I think the issue right now is that the Oscar's are grasping for popular relevance in a time where tastes are currently so fragmented and niched that a significant number of people no longer see the worth of the ceremony. There's a lot else their fighting against, like entrenched classism and elitism, and a the almost disgusting spectacle of the ceremony, but those are issues for other posts. The main thing is, they don't know what works any more. The Oscars had this golden era as a popular ceremony when they became an almost theatrical spectacle, but that time seems to have past (even if people don't realize it) and the Academy can't seem to figure it out, so they keep throwing different people at the hosting position as if that, and not the length, and not the totally unselfconscious excess, and not the self-importance, were the thing putting people off from year to year.
Good choice. I think the best hosts have been the combination of Baldwin and Martin. McFarlane is good people.
