    The Academy Picks Family Guy Creator Seth MacFarlane to Host Oscars

    I don't get it. Yes, the Academy wants to make people think that it is hip and young and I understand that, but Seth MacFarlane? The guy who directed Ted (which was a huge hit) and the creative genius behind Family Guy to host the Oscars? I read yesterday that he is only the second host after El...

    Oscar Thoughts: Boys, Boys and More Boys

    Here's my thing about the Oscars. There were women everywhere. We can't stop talking about the great dresses.

    Do the Oscars Still Matter - Even for Documentaries?

    Once again, as we near closer to another Academy Awards ceremony, people are asking the same old question: do the Oscars still matter?
