Seth MacFarlane is getting hammered in the press and on social media for what many felt was a poor performance laced with anti-gay, anti-women, racist, and otherwise juvenile jokes.

“The event, honoring the best in cinema for 2012, was a disaster, with host Seth MacFarlane—the creator of a few TV series, including Family Guy, and the blockbuster comedy film Ted—doing an incredibly awkward Rat Pack-meets-Crank Yankers routine, replete with silly jokes touching on rape, race, sexism, Nazis, and the Lincoln assassination,” the Daily Beast notes:

With the exception of a couple of Sinatra song-and-dance routines, including “The Way You Look Tonight,” where he was flanked by Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum dancing onstage, and “High Hopes,” for which he was joined by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Daniel Radcliffe, precious little worked for MacFarlane. We should’ve really all seen this coming, since his Oscar promos leading up to the ceremony were unfunny, to say the least.

The Beast concludes:

Earlier in the night, William Shatner—as Star Trek’s Captain Kirk—beamed in via satellite and, in a meta-moment, claimed he was from “the future” and labeled MacFarlane “the worst Oscar host ever.”

He might be right.

Actually, knowing who he is, my partner and I agree that he wasn't that bad….We were never offended, but we were entertained and that is the reason he was doing this, correct? All I can say to the discontents is…PUT ON YOUR BIG GIRL PANTS…A Joke is a Joke and quit thinking it is anything more than a joke!

Did anyone else notice that the music playing after Tarantino's acceptance speech for Best Original Screenplay for Django Unchained was the theme from Gone With The Wind?

This can only mean that the Tea Party has taken over Hollywood. The purges will began at Musso and Frank Grill this evening, immediately after happy hour.
