A lot was made of choosing Seth MacFarlane as the host of the 85th Academy Awards since his crude sense of humour (see: "Family Guy," Ted) wasn't exactly in line with the typical stodgy Oscar evening tone.
But he proved to be rather toothless and uneven, choosing to deliver most of his lightly prickly jabs with a nervous smile stretched across his lips, like a kid desperate for your approval but trying to feign the opposite. Edgy? Not so much. Yes, he had a song that celebrated certain female body parts and pretended to take home Sally Field but it felt patently immature, even for the voice of Stewie, and piecemeal at best as sock puppet re-enactments and random soft shoe routines were squeezed between Kardashian jokes.
