Trivia

Prior to the ceremony, an estimated 400 visual effects artists staged a protest on Hollywood Boulevard, alleging mistreatment of their industry by the studio system. The protest began when the winner for Best Visual Effects; Life of Pi (2012)'s visual effects studio, Rhythm & Hues filed for bankruptcy in the weeks before the ceremony. Protesters were further vexed when the artists were drowned out by the Jaws (1975) theme music during their acceptance speech, right as they began speaking about the controversy. See more »

Quotes

Herself - Presenter: [Opening remarks while presenting the Academy Award for Best Picture] These nine movies took us back in time and all around the world. They made us laugh, they made us weep, they made us grip our armrest a little tighter. They taught us that love can endure against all odds and transform our lives in the most surprising ways. And they reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we work hard enough, and dig deep enough, and find the courage in ourselves. These lessons apply to all of us, no ...

Hilarious, Creative and what I expected from Seth
25 February 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

OK lets get this straight. Seth McFarlane creator of "Family Guy" one of the best animations of this generation (referring to teens) "Family Guy" is one of the most offensive shows displayed on T.v the show is aimed towards young adults and teenagers. So what did people expect for Mr McFarlane. He created "family guy" and "ted" both are racist, sexist and very very offensive but they are the most funniest films/shows I have ever seen.

To be honest I expected Seth to be more offensive, he is one of the most talented artists in the world. He is a comedian, he sings and he can voice pretty much anything.

Now I am getting quite angry at the people who are going out of their way and wasting their time on trying to get everybody to hate seth for his offensive humor. It was not even that bad, that's todays comedy so get used to it. The "Oscars" producers needed more viewers so they grabbed Seth which is a big hit to the young community (pretty much the only reason why I watched it) The song "We saw your boobs" was even told before hand that it will be offensive but I did love the sock puppet part. So seriously just relax and enjoy his offensive humor because that is what todays comedy is about.

This years Oscars was brilliant I loved watching the whole thing. From Adele to Jennifer Lawrence falling it was all good. The only thing I didn't like was the variety of nominees in total there were about 10 movies that were nominated. The ceremony is about giving awards and listening to speeches, that does not attract viewers. Put one of the funniest guys in there as host and a few musicals and you have a hit. Thank you
