When it was first announced that Seth MacFarlane would host the Oscars, people were pleasantly surprised and excited, thinking that the Oscars would finally have some edge to them. After all, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the Golden Globe Awards to great reviews and managed to keep the show fresh, funny, and charming at the same time.

However, whatever his original intentions may have been, most of MacFarlane’s efforts fell completely flat. His opening monologue consisted of a few zingers, but the rest felt very edited and un-Seth MacFarlane. The bit about the boob singing just felt uninspired and tacky, and the rest of the ‘William Shatner from the future’ bit just got old very fast.
 
It is his fault? We’re inclined to blame the Academy for censoring the heck out of him. We all know Seth MacFarlane is an incredibly funny guy, both from Family Guy and Ted. While some of the blame definitely lands on him for not coming up with more creative jokes that would be ok with the Academy [see: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler], they should have given him free reign with the thing. Of course, not Ricky Gervais levels of free reign, but some free reign nonetheless.

Overall, the show was a miss, and MacFarlane just came off as bored and uninspired throughout the entire thing, leading to a drab and by-the-numbers ceremony that had little shock or entertainment value. Do you agree? Let us know in the comments.
