    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...

    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...

    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...
