Himself - Presenter: This is insane, dude.
Seth MacFarlane: Heh, look at all this talent. All this talent in one spot! There's, uh, there's Daniel Day-Lewis... There's Alan Arkin... There's Joaquin Phoenix. And you know what's interesting? All those actors I just named are part-Jewish.

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
