    The John Wiles Booth joke was hilarious and didn't get a single laugh. WTF

    I felt like the writing was terrible, and he knew it. He had to do what was written and couldnt' really be himself, but it's the oscars so what do you expect.

    Wasn't nearly as brutal though as the red carpet interviews beforehand with Kristin Chenowith.

    Ok, WTF with Chenowith? That little troll doll is some serious scary and I will have to drink extra hard to keep her out of my nightmares. And they just kept puttin people like Queen Latifa next to her to show us just how freakishly impish she is. My poor weiner may NEVER come out of hiding.
    Seth did a fine job. It is what it is. You can only go so far. As it is I am hearing reports that some of the older hollywood types were offended. Really, only the Ted 'jewish hollywood' jokes were that off color. The sock puppet re-enactment of Flight and the Von Trapp joke were terrific. Really childish and silly, but perfect.
    I just don't get all the musical numbers. These people work their whole lives to get that moment of recognition and some of them gave really heartfelt and engaging speeches only to be 'Jaws'ed off. I half expected a sandman sweep em out of here from the old Chris Rock skit on SNL. I went to great pains to avold Chicago in any form, and remain ever vigilant to this day, only to have to suffer through another painful rendition...really? And sorry Ben, but you didn't deserve the direction oscar, or the best picture...that was Life of Pi. It was a good night because a lot of the right folks won. Waltz...2 for 2. And Tarentino was acknowledged too. Have to think he's happier with the screenplay than best picture award. All in all, a decent night.

    You know, if the Academy really wants more television viewership, that kind of stuff is good for them.

    I pretty much agree, but I will admit to enjoying the sight of Catherine Zeta Jones in that outfit.

    Yeah, Zeta Jones has held up well, but she's a forgotten pill away from Margot Kidder on a bender.

    OOf...Andy Griffith left out of the 'In Memoriam'...that's a whiff.

    And didn't Meryl Streep look like she had wedgie issues?

    Oscars 2013 In Memoriam Snubs -- List

    But they couldn’t squeeze in everyone. So the Academy posted a supplementary online gallery to cover its bases with a slideshow honoring those who didn’t make the telecast. Over 100 departed talents who passed away in the last year including Hagman, Griffith, Harry Carey Jr, Ann Rutherford, David R. Ellis, Nagisa Oshima, Donna Summer, Susan Tyrrell, Alex Karras, director Mel Stuart and Gore Vidal earned non-broadcast mentions. Yet there were even more snubs: Actress Phyllis Diller, Native American icon Russell Means, actress Lupe Ontiveros, actor Robin Sachs, actor Sherman Hemsley, puppeteer Jerry Nelson and actor Conrad Bain didn’t warrant mentions in the Academy’s online gallery.

    I guess I was much more impressed with Flight than anyone else on the planet. Maybe because it wasn't anything like what I expected to see when I begrudgingly sat down to watch it.

    Oscars 2013: TV ratings rise with Seth MacFarlane as host - latimes.com

    And the ratings were up considerably. Does that garner a second go, or does stodgy Hollywood just not care?
