Our Long National Nightmare Is Over

A massive success. Was he good? No. Did people watch? Yes. Are people still talking about it two days later? Yes.

Maybe you should get over the Oscars and yourself?

@1, hell yes. Unqualified amazeballs unheard of success. And he knows it. And every tom dick & harry with blog posting rights is still milking it for page views - you'd think they'd be a bit more gracious for the raw material.

@1 - Exactly. The Oscars' battle isn't with quality, it's with relevance. In 2012, Billy Crystal dragged out a 30-year old Sammy Davis Jr. impression, ferchrissake.

Thank God.

He was ok, not the best host and clearly not the worst *cough* David Letterman *cough*.

Seth was much better hosting SNL, his opening monologue was brilliant.

There were some very good bits (sock puppet Flight was gold!) but he came across as smarmy and strangely self-conscious. The pacing of the jokes was a lot worse than the material. And laughing at one's own jokes automatically makes a comic look not ready for prime time.

He won't host the Oscars again, but next year he'll host the Golden Globes. His performance will be suspiciously similar, the jokes will all be the same, and really it'll be the same performance, except all of the prinicpal characters will have been changed slightly.

It's a goddamn variety and awards show. Get a fucking grip and find something worthwhile to obsess over.

@9
The Stranger inherently promotes popularity and celebrity. Dan is huge! Books, websites, speaking tours. He is a popular guy. Maybe even in Europe. wow, that would be popular. Dominic is like the way coolest dude in Seattle proper. And Paul Constant, he is celebrity to the 100th power. His whole being is an imitation of a four inch boner. So yeah, they MUST obsess.

you know, dipshit, you sound just like a football fan who can't get over the defeat.

ah, the ironing.

Yes, 'tis truly a cross to bear, Paul. You jackass. -- pretty much anyone from any country other than the US, plus most any US resident not paid to inspire false outrage

@10, as a person with an actual four inch boner this very minute I must say it looks nothing like Paul.
14
Jonah Spangenthal-Lee, maybe.

@gus: LOL. The cut ones all look like Darth Vader to me.

And it'll be funnier 'cause he and the audience will be much, much drunker.

Every time somebody bitches about MacFarlane, I remember his performance a little bit more fondly.

@15 May the force-kin be with you

Now can we convince him to stop making unfunny animated TV shows?

It's sad that so many people here, like bad children, don't know the difference between good attention and bad. That fucker McFarlane's whole shtick is shock for shock's sake and bullying the underdog (women, handicapped folks, minorities, the poor). When he tried that shit in a room full of rich people with media power, it just didn't fly. Also: making fun of singing and carrying a tune while doing so does not equal actual singing ability. The fucking idiot actually put out an album of standards. It sounds like Brian the dog.

ONLY THE DEAD CAN KNOW PEACE FROM THIS EVIL
