It's kind of bugging me to see reviews state that Macfarlane "bombed" with the theater audience. I rewatched the opening and they were laughing their asses off, and were with him through much of the night.

And even the shocked reaction to his John Wilkes Booth joke was exactly the kind of response you're looking for with a joke like that.
Joan Rivers was on Stern this morning and brought up an interesting point. Billy Crystal once said to her that hosting the Oscars was really tough for any host as the night went on because more and more people in the audience were upset at losing with each award.

That's a very good point, these are a bunch of egomaniacs overpaid assholes that laugh during the show and deny it later. The jokes were funny, most laughed. Getting upset at a Lincoln shot in the head joke 150 years later? Really? The Chris Brown joke I can see upsetting people, domestic violence is horrible and shouldn't be joked about, but Rihanna went back to that jackass so it's far game.

But the boob joke was awesome, the women were in on it, the joke was "This is how why people think you suck" from Captain Kirk.

People need to lighten up.

The post-Oscars paparazzi pictures of Jennifer Lawrence chilling on a hotel balcony with no makeup smoking a joint just make me like her even more.

I think it was in Hawaii where she's getting ready to film hunger games.

Yeah, it's "post Oscars" only in the sense that every day of the rest of her life is "post Oscars."

I figured I could get away with post Oscars for the first week after.

No hey problema. I was just clarifying to Clegg that it wasn't something she was doing at a Oscar party or something. It was a few days later.

Yep. I saw the photos, and if they're legit, it just makes her more adorable.

Bleeding Cool is claiming that MacFarlane has been asked back to host the Oscars.
