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

As much as I enjoy see CZJ shimmying about, this should have been the Bond tribute: a medley of the best songs performed by the musicians who made them famous: Bassey, McCartney, sheena Easton...culminating in Adele doing Skyfall

And Jennifer Hudson did not win American Idol.

^Agreed. Bassey was great, but doing that would have just made it transcendent. I would say get Duran Duran instead of Sheena Easton, though.

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

I know the theme is music in film, but doing Chicago and Dreamgirls is neither recent enough to be timely or long enough ago to be nostalgic. It just seems out of place next to Les Miserables. They should have just done more from LM, since it was a great performance.

I'm not into musicals but getting the Miserables cast together for this was pretty impressive.

Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen got drowned out, Russel Crowe still can't sing, yet somehow this version of One Day More was still better than what they actually put in the movie.

Am I the only one who really didn't like this Les Miserables mash up?

Slight digression here but I just realized Paul Giamatti should've starred in the Oz movie

I understand why they did it. They wanted a big cast song, which is One Day More, but Hathaway's character is not in it. They altered the lyrics a bit and fit her into it. The melody didn't change at all, since the beginning of the song is essentially I Dreamed a Dream.
