    UGH. This guy is really, really not funny. I keep wishing they’d recruit Stephen Colbert for this. Or get Hugh Jackman to come back. He was pretty fabulous.

    Awesome! I’ll be sure to tune in. However, I hope producers keep their fingers on the ‘censor’ button because Seth MacFarlane doesn’t have any limits. EVERYTHING is fair game. P.S. I hope he brings Mila Kunis with him. ;-P

    He’s a creative writer; however, Seth is too controversial, therefore he’s not a great pick for hosting the Oscars. Bigotry is the bulk of his comedic skits, which isn’t always funny. I’d choose Matt Groening over Seth any day.

    I think Matt Groening did this already…
