Kristin and Oscars host Seth MacFarlane to perform after the final statuette is handed out. What do you think they'll sing?

Wow!!! Barbara, Adele, Chicago, Dreamgirls, Les Mis and now Cheno!!! This are going to be the most epic academy awards ever!!!
My guess is Kristin will sing something written just for that occasion a la NPH in the Tonys.

I hope it's something super awesome and not at all offensive about how the Oscars are just for gays!

I thought the Oscars were for left wing, homo loving, G*d hating, Liberal intellectuals, who hate America? Does that not mean gay?

With all these performances, how are they going to find time to squeeze in 15 awards and speeches and standing ovations? This will be a lonnnnnnnnng evening.

15 awards? Isn't there 28?
"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."

Barbra singing "The Way We Were"---again!

But maybe because it's for the "In Memoriam" part of the show, it will be special.
