I say bring back James "I don't want to be here" Franco and Anne "I want to be here too much" Hathaway.

I think it was more James "Dude, Where the hell am I?" Franco.

I think Seth wants to be the new Hugh Jackman.

I gotta feeling that Anne's going to be there anyway- and I forget the last time a nominee that very year hosted at the Oscars.

Most of the Oscar audience won't /don't know who he is.

Seth is my celebrity free pass should I ever meet him. I've already cleared this with my husband.

Get in line, wench!

I think he has great potential to be an outstanding host. Choosing him is surprising, however. He is very new to "Hollywood" and few older than Zac Efron will know who he is. I can hear the conversation now...

KATE WINSLET: "Seth MacFarlane? Who is that?"
AGENT: "He's the guy that created FAMILY GUY."
KATE WINSLET: "What is FAMILY GUY?"
AGENT: "It's that popular cartoon show the kids watch with the talking baby."
KATE WINSLET: Have I done a nude scene with him?
AGENT: Not yet.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."
--Aristotle

His demographic is older than you'd think. Guys who were in their late 20s when Family Fuy started are now entering their 40s. That show started quite a while ago...

I don't think the concern is he is 'new'. He is just a little middle-brow for a lot of people.

Pretty sure he is acknowledged by industry types because he has pretty much done the cutaway gags on everybody by this point.

He kinda creeps me out, but I think I always think too much about the New Yorker profile of him and how, apparently, way too eager to show off he was throughout. I also wish he and Jimmy Fallon, to use another example of someone I like fine as a host, would NEVER sing again on TV.

Aw, I like both Jimmy and Seth as singers...have you heard Seth's album or seen him on last months BBC Proms? He sang from The Most Happy Fella, The Pajama Game, The Music Man, etc.

I'm with Joe. I'd take Daniel Tosh or a myriad of others over Seth MacFarlane.

As long as they don't let him write his own material, it could be all right.

He's a smug asshole and I kind of loathe him, but hey, at least that saves me 3 hours of watching the ceremony next year.

I leave the room smiling.
