Oscar Host Seth MacFarlane: Douche or Genius? [POLL]

Seth MacFarlane Douche Or Genius

Seth MacFarlane is one of the most divisive personalities in all of Hollywood. As the creator of Family Guy, American Dad, The Cleveland Show and this past summer’s blockbuster smash Ted, he’s earned himself millions of fans and hundreds of millions of dollars. However, many elitist-types turn their noses up at his brand of lowbrow humor and over-reliance on pop culture references. So, with that being said, what was YOUR reaction to his opening monologue as the host of 2013 Academy Awards: Is Seth MacFarlane a Douche or Genius? Take our poll below.

Oscars 2013: Dustin Hoffman Loves Ben Affleck, Has A Message For Academy Voters

Dustin Hoffman has already won two Academy Awards, but that doesn’t make attending this year’s show any less special. The Quartet director may have had an awkward encounter with superfan Joseph Gordon-Levitt (just wait until the opening number, JGL! He’ll surely send you a fruit basket) but he was eager to gush about Ben Affleck, the son of his old pal Timothy and another actor-turned-director who has received lots of love this award season. “What do I make of him? How much time do you have?” Hoffman asked VH1′s very own Janell Snowden and MTV’s Josh Horowitz moments ago on the red carpet. “Affleck is the real thing as a director.” So he’s a Ben lover… just like us!

6 Reasons Why Jennifer Lawrence Is Winning

Awards

UPDATE (2/24/13 at 11:48 p.m.): Good news! Jennifer Lawrence did NOT lose, after all; she took home the Academy Award for Best Actress tonight for her awesome performing in Silver Linings Playbook. She did, however, trip on her way up the steps to accept the award. Yet another reason —our Sixth, in fact!— to love and root for our girl, J-LAW!

Jennifer Lawrence may be slowly slipping into second place behind Emmanuelle Riva in the Best Actress Oscar race, but she remains solidly on-top in our books for reasons that go far beyond her amazing work on-screen. Despite all the hoopla surrounding her, from the indie accolades to the blockbuster bank, she is decidedly unfazed by it all. She doesn’t pal around with other celebs in her down time and she has yet to succumb to the unrelenting and unrealistic pressure of the Hollywood Actresses Must B Skin n’ Bones machine. She likes her mom. She is…normal. And that, more than anything, is the most extraordinary thing about her.
