    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. ...

    Oscars: Watch The Full 85th Academy Awards Show In Its Entirety

    Missed the 85th Academy Awards last night for some reason? Not into it? Just sort of put off by Seth MacFarlane's perennially self-satisfied and smug smirk? Perhaps you watched, but went to bed during the 6th hour when you knew there were still 45 nominations to go? We can't fault you e...

    Oscar Review: Seth MacFarlane's Badness Explained

    Was Seth MacFarlane the victim of some terrible time-travel accident that caused him – and all his Oscar-show material – to be trapped in the 1950’s (and not in a successfully ironic way)? That’s the most generous explanation I have for his pathetically unfunny job as Os...

    Your Burning Oscar-Show Questions Answered, MacFarlane to Best Dead People

    The Oscar show was bloated with movie music that had no reason being there. (A tribute to Chicago? Other than the fact that the Oscar show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron also produced that movie .. oh yeah, that’s why). It had Seth MacFarlane, whose jokes might have been offensive i...

    Predicting the Oscars: Don't Trust Me, Trust Nate Silver

    I was thinking this might be the first year in recent memory when the Oscars actually held some suspense about the winners. Is anything really a lock for Best Picture? What about that wacky Best Directors race, already full of also-rans? Then I read Nate Silver’s thoroughly lucid and comp...

    Charlize Theron In Talks To Join Seth MacFarlane's Cowboy Comedy 'A Million Ways To Die In The West'

    It's got to be pretty good to be Seth MacFarlane these days. He has roughly thirty-eight hit cartoon series on Fox, his first movie, last summer's "Ted," made half-a-billion dollars worldwide, he's hosting the Oscars, he's doing it with the Khaleesi, and people still humor his career as a lounge sin...

    Watch The Oscar Nominations: The Good, The Bad, The What Were They Thinking?

    What a relief! It looks like the Oscar show might actually be fun, thanks to Seth MacFarlane. When he and Emma Stone announced the nominees, MacFarlane commented with barbed lines that were as edgy as anything Ricky Gervais did during his controversial Golden Globes gigs. After announcing the B...

    Seth MacFarlane Will Find 'A Million Ways To Die In The West' For Directorial Effort, Will Appear On 'The Simpsons'

    Having a $500 million dollar hit with "Ted," leading Fox's animation domination with "Family Guy," and set to host the Oscars in February, things are going pretty well for Seth MacFarlane. And he's not wasting any time in striking while the iron is hot, as he's lining...

    Seth MacFarlane Says 'Family Guy' Movie Is On The Way, Has A Slight Criticism Of 'The Simpsons Movie'

    Damn, we must have lost count somewhere along the way, but "Family Guy" is now going eleven seasons strong. And while the exploits of Peter Griffin and co. are not quite as fresh, funny or interesting as they used to be, like "The Simpsons," it's a cash printing machine for Fox thanks to syndication...
