Video: Seth MacFarlane’s Oscars Opening + Winner’s List [2/25]

23

Seth MacFarlane was (surprisingly) the host of the Academy Awards this year, and while many critics thought his performance fell flat (side note: Dear Fox News, did you really have to point out that “The Boob Song” was pre-taped as if you were shocked? That was the whole point…) we thought otherwise. The Family Guy and Ted creator did make some lame jokes, but we still thought they were funny! Plus, Seth MacFarlane is like a must for college students – who doesn’t love him? Fun fact that we learned about Seth from hosting the Oscars: he can sing (who would’ve thought he was a man of so many talents?) Anyway, Seth’s opening monologue featured William Shatner, Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum, Daniel Radcliffe and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sally Field, and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. It was quite the affair, to say the least.

We were pleased with 99.9% of the show. The award outcomes were just right, the acts were funny, the musical performances were spot on, and Jennifer Lawrence won best actress (yay, Katniss!) The only problem was, whoops! The Oscars were only supposed to go until 11:30PM and it was after midnight when we finally turned off the TV. Five hours of Oscars suspense was a bit much, but, at least it was a show worth watching.
