Re: Seth Macfarlane tapped to host this years Academy Awards!

Honestly, I think it's a brilliant choice. I'm no fan of McFarlane's animated works outside of pre-cancellation Family Guy (and its first season after coming back) and American Dad (which McFarlane doesn't write or even supervise; he simply does voice work on it), but the guy's whole thing is that he absolutely adores old-time Hollywood, which you can see in work like very early Family Guy. He's a consummate showman and entertainer. If you're that disgusted by the choice, you're giving someone waaaay down the line too much credit.

I'm really looking forward to what he puts together -- it has to be better than the James Franco Experience, or embalmed Billy Crystal (complete with blackface!).
