He says he'll need to adapt his style somewhat for the Academy audience. So he may cut back on the atheism comments.

Too many hosts joke about the excessive length, but they wouldn't have to if the producers would do something about it. It's not rocket science. All the other award shows generally stay within their set lengths.

That should be a lot of fun to watch. Love him or hate him for Family Guy, he does do a pretty good job hosting and doing impressions, and he's pretty fearless about joking about celebrities, so I'm looking forward to it. I hope they tailor things to his style a bit instead of only trying to force the usual Oscars comedy on him.

Gee, I wonder if there'll be any songs.

Because this will be the first Oscars with a song or two?

Works for me, I thought he did a nice job on SNL the other week.

Not a bad idea, but then you'd have Sean Penn countering whatever accurate point he made, actor by actor. And you couldn't get away with endless self-testimonials how noble and inspirational the Hollywood acting profession is to the world while getting expensive goodie bags just for presenting, or wearing and/or keeping $40,000 dresses they never even bothered to pay for, which have nothing to do with their films anyway.

Put me in the camp that loved him, but I have hated recent Family Guy and with him using the show as a blunt object to tell us how stupid we all for believing what we want. Sure, it can be funny, once, twice, maybe the third time. But it has grown tiresome and if he could prove he could do something else besides copying the Family Guy formula again and again (see American Dad, The Cleveland Show), I may revisit my feelings.

Well him hosting might actually get me to watch the show this year.

Yeah. In fact, I think we should encourage him. The more success he finds as 'himself,' the greater the possibility he'll stop churning out derivative riffs on the same show over and over.

He has admitted the show is long past where he would have preferred to let it go out with some dignity and fond memories intact, but as long as Fox is footing the bill for everything else he wants to do he has no good reason to stop giving them the 22 episodes a year they ask for.
