Seth MacFarlane hosted the Oscars this year and right afterwards said he wouldn’t do it again. Then when it was announced that the producers were returning to do the Academy Awards again, it was said that Ted’s voice would also be back. Well today the man, who has two shows on the air with the word Dad in the title even though he isn’t one, Tweeted that he won’t be doing it. He said “Traumatized critics exhale: I’m unable to do the Oscars again. Tried to make it work schedule-wise, but I need sleep. However, I highly recommend the job, as Zadan and Meron are two of the most talented producers in the business. My suggestion for host is Joaquin Phoenix.” I like the idea of hosting instead, what about you?
Now when it comes to Seth not doing the show again, I am OK with it because I wasn’t as impressed with him as I was with other things he has done. He was on a leash and because of that he tried to hard to break free.
Just over 24 hours after Seth MacFarlane hosted the Oscars, he let us know whether he would do it again. When CrusePhoto asked him on Twitter, “Would you host the #Oscars again if asked?” He Tweeted back, “No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though.”
Do you think the Academy would’ve asked him back? When it comes to the recent hosts he wasn’t as awful as Anne Hathaway and James Franco, but he wasn’t as great as when Billy Crystal was at his best or Hugh Jackman.
It is a tough job and I get why so many people would never do it again. Even the most confident come off as nervous their first time around because imagine the pressure of it all. None of them will ever have that large of an audience again and it is live so that means no do overs!
One of the biggest stars from this summer’s movies was not Channing Tatum’s abs, but Ted the foul mouthed Teddy Bear. Well yesterday Seth MacFarlane’s first big screen movie came out on Blu-ray and that cute but dirty teddy bear was doing press for it. Ted’s last stop was Jimmy Kimmel Live and I say last stop because Jimmy Kimmel Tweeted, “Ted died tonight @SethMacFarlane”. I guess without Mila Kunis there to make a wish to bring him back to life, he is really dead dead. And because of that I guess there won’t be a Ted 2. So today take a minute to remember him by buying the DVD or the life-size R-Rated version of him to keep his spirit alive. And maybe if we are lucky enough, he will come alive for us just like he did for Mark Wahlberg in the movie.
If anyone feels like buying me the Ted doll for the holidays, I would say thank you very much!
BTW I can’t believe Jimmy Kimmel killed Ted, Why???
Kanye West is back on tonight’s The Cleveland Show on Fox at 7:30p and he brought some of the biggest names in Hip Hop with him.
Kenny West is back in Stoolbend and he needs to get cable for all of his TVs. So Cleveland is assigned the job. When Brown see his old friend, he is surprised he doesn’t recognize the man that helped to make him a success. In fact West is so big now he is part of the Hip Hop Illuminati and Cleveland walks in on one of their secret meetings. Now will.i.am, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars and Questlove have to decide what they are going to do with him. Is the last we will ever see of him? You will have to tune into this episode that is above the beat to find out.
AMPAS announced today that Seth MacFarlane is going to host the Oscars and I am announcing that I will be skipping them! I mean I already hate the nominations because they are always a snoozefest that will be forgotten within days after the big ceremony. I dare you to name last year’s winner. See couldn’t do it.
But yet knowing that I have tuned in for the last few years just because I was curious about the hosts, yes even that sh!tastic year when Anne Hathaway and James Franco hosted. But I have already seen Seth MacFarlane at his best at the Roasts and he is not a draw to me. I don’t know, I have grown quite bored of the man who I used to really enjoy.
So I guess that February night when Hollywood honors the most boring movies of the year, I will be watching The Avengers on DVD and thinking how that movie and Joss Whedon were robbed.
And if Ted gets more noms than Avengers, then we know it was fixed for the host. Because let’s be real Ted was good but it went on way too long to be great.
BTW I am wondering how many people over 45 are going who is Seth MacFarlane? Probably most of them and that could really hurt the ratings and the Oscars have been suffering big time over the last few years because of that.
Finally I love how he predicted that he would be the perfect Oscar at the first roast he hosted for Comedy Central!
UPDATE: Seth MacFarlane‘s dad is as excited about his son hosting the Oscars as I am!
Last year Fox announced that Seth MacFarlane is working on an updated version of The Flintstones and today Deadline is reporting the animated show is on hold because he is too busy with all of his other projects. The show was slated to debut next year, but due to him working on the TV shows Family Guy, The Cleveland Show, American Dad, his first feature film Ted, his first album and being the Roast Master of two Roasts; he has been too busy to start work on the show. So for now the show remains in prehistoric times, you know the 20th Century and I am A OK with that. I never thought it was a good idea in the first place. I know he loves animation and does wonders for it, but I just don’t think he is the right person to bring the show back to television.
I enjoy Seth MacFarlane’s shows American Dad, Family Guy and The Cleveland Show. I think Mila Kunis is awdorable and want to see her movies even if they look bad. And I sincerely like Mark Wahlberg movies for the most part. Now having said that, I have absolutely no temptation to see Seth’s first feature film Ted when it comes out on July 13th. It looks like one of the movies that you watch on a rainy Saturday afternoon because there is nothing else on and then wonder why you didn’t watch anything else besides it.
Plus is it just me or does anyone else not believe that Wahlberg and Kunis would be a couple?
Family Guy has retold the first three Star Wars movies and tonight at 8:30p on Fox The Cleveland Show is taking on the first Die Hard. Die Semi-Hard makes the franchise fun again, so tune in to see it told in a way you never thought it could. Hopefully Bruce Willis will like it as much as I do because if he doesn’t he might blow up the show’s writers room!
Yesterday Seth MacFarlane Tweeted, “Wonder if Howie Mandel ever just breaks down and touches everyone in sight.” Howie Mandel the Germaphobe saw the Tweet and responded with, “I have a hard time touching myself” I think he is exaggerating because I am sure if he needs to take care of himself he will do so with a hand sanitizer instead of moisturizer! Or better yet anti-bacterial moisturizer!
