    Can Seth MacFarlane Break $500 Million Again? 'A Million Ways To Die In The West' Sets 2014 Date

    Was it beginner's luck, or is Seth MacFarlane the new R-rated comedy king? With his feature directorial debut "Ted" taking over $540 million worldwide last year, it certainly went way above and beyond what anyone was expecting of a movie with a talking, foul-mouthed teddy bear and Mark Wahlberg. And...

    Seth MacFarlane Asked To Return To Host The Oscars

    Not longer after his gig hosting the Oscars this year -- an effort which produced mixed results, at best -- Seth MacFarlane was asked on Twitter if he would like to do it again, to which he replied, "No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though." But regardless, it looks like the Academy want him back...

    'Family Weekend' Star Kristin Chenoweth On How the Bible Belt Killed 'GCB' and What She Thought of Seth MacFarlane's Oscar Performance

    Pint-sized Tony/Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth, who recently showcased her chipper and bubbly personality as ABC's red carpet host at the Oscars, dials it down a few notches to play a selfish and cold working mother in the dark comedy "Family Weekend" (in theaters this Friday). Although the actress i...

    Tina Fey Defends Seth MacFarlane's Hosting of the Oscars: "It's the hardest job there is"

    Seth MacFarlane has no plans to return to the Oscars. "No way," he tweeted. Tina Fey, for one, who hit it out of the park at the Globes with Amy Poehler, defends his performance as Oscar host. "It's the hardest job there is," she explains by phone. "It's a tough room. Seth did great."

    My Night at the Oscars, from the Red Carpet to the Governor's Ball

    It was mighty fun attending the Oscars as a guest, as opposed to standing on high heels with the print press off the red carpet or backstage, simultaneously tracking the show and winners' interviews. It's been a while since I covered inside the Oscar show for Premiere and EW--back at the Shrine and ...

    Watch: “We Saw Your Junk” Song Responds To Seth MacFarlane's Oscar Tune "We Saw Your Boobs"

    God bless the internet and modern technology, or pehaps take it as a sign as to how much of a misfire the Oscars were on Sunday, but in less than 48 hours we're already seeing improvements to the show. This morning, a much, much better video montage tribute to the James Bond franchise arriv...

    Seth MacFarlane Says He Won't Host The Oscars Again, 5 Suggestions For Who Could Replace Him

    While you can continue to debate the merits of Sunday night's Oscars hosted by Seth MacFarlane (as we have already done), the bottom line is the Academy got what they wanted by hiring the edgy, younger skewing, "Family Guy" creator. The ratings for the show were up in 2013 with 40...

    The Highlights & Worst Aspects Of The 85th Academy Awards

    For what it's worth, the ratings for last night's Oscar show look to be up, suggesting that the Academy's gamble with Seth MacFarlane paid off (although, the fact that six of the Best Picture nominations made over $100 million is probably the most significant factors). But creatively, things were a ...

    5 Ways To Make Next Year's Oscars Better Than The 2013 Ceremony

    The Oscar show always seems to be a mix of time honored tradition and off-the-wall experimentation (remember that Cirque Du Soleil thing last year? Pharrell playing in the balcony of the Dolby Theater?) and 2013 was no different. While the Academy tried to court younger viewers by choosing "Family G...

    The 2013 Oscars: Torn Between Self-Seriousness and Wanting to See Boobs

    The Academy Awards are not, as we were reminded several times during last night's telecast, a reflection of the films that are most successful by the measure of the box office. None of the best picture nominees were among the top ten money-making titles of the year, though a few were in the top 20. ...
