Trivia

Host Seth MacFarlane's repertoire was criticized by some viewers for being racist, antisemitic, homophobic and sexist (e.g. the song-and-dance tribute to female toplessness in cinema "We Saw Your Boobs"). Among the guests that evening, Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis were both extremely offended by MacFarlane's John Wilkes Booth joke, but had agreed beforehand not to make a big deal out of it. Jane Fonda, who co-presented Best Director, later expressed similar sentiments on her blog that much of MacFarlane's humor was inappropriate for general audiences. MacFarlane tweeted two days later saying he enjoyed the experience, but that he would not want to host again. See more »

Quotes

Seth MacFarlane: Daniel Day Lewis, not the first actor to be nominated for playing Lincoln. Raymond Massey portrayed him in 1940's Abe Lincoln in Illinois. This is true.
[crowd applauds]
Seth MacFarlane: I would argue, however, that the actor who *really* got inside Lincoln's head was John Wilkes Booth.
[crowd groans]
Seth MacFarlane: Really, a hundred and fifty years, and it's still too soon, huh?
[crowd laughs]
Seth MacFarlane: I got some Napoleon jokes coming up, you guys are gonna be SO mad! Oh, my god!

My Awards For The 85th Annual Academy Awards !

_The Most Offensive : The song of "We Saw Your Boobs". It crossed the line as shocking, embarrassing and unfunny !

_The Most Silly : Paul Rudd and Melissa McCarthy. Whatever they were saying, they said it in the most ridiculous way ever !

_The Most Rude : Of course, interrupting the speeches of some "poor" winners, like the winners of the best special effects, with the theme of Jaws, while giving all the time for Anne Hathaway to tell the names of half of the earth's population, and saying the names twice ! Well, it made me imagine a slasher movie where the Academy members are killed one by one with another shark, made – naturally – by the winners who didn't have any time to speak in the Oscars !

_The Most Clever : Charlize Theron's dancing. OH MY GOD, this took my breath away. Dustin Hoffman was totally right.

_The Most Surprising : Shirley Bassey performing "Goldfinger", after nearly 50 years of singing it for the first time. How powerful and glamorous. In the age of 76 she proved that she still HAS IT !

_The Most Expressive : The stage while Barbra Streisand was performing "The Way We Were" in the memory of the late Marvin Hamlisch. Its sight of endless sad candles moved me indeed.

_The Most Exhausted : Renée Zellweger. She looked like 1) having a really ugly flu. Or 2) : a Renée Zellweger look-alike. Or 3) a Renée Zellweger look-alike who has a really ugly flu !

_The Worst Performance : "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" by Norah Jones. I don't know why, but there was something wrong about the music, the sound, Jones's voice, or all of the above !

_The Worst Look : Jack Nicholson's. Sorry, but he seemed like the circus clown !

_The Worst Hairdo : Michelle Obama's, no arguments !

_The Most Dead : Kristen Stewart while presenting one of the awards. Dear, please give a damn. You're not in front of the camera of a movie to look as lifeless as this !

_The Most Smart : Meryl Streep while saying the winner of the Best Actor in a Leading Role right after reading the nominees. She's maybe the best one to know the slowness and the burden of moments like opening the envelope, then reading the name. Heck. She experienced that a lot !

_The Most Truthful Speech : Ben Affleck's. Especially the part of "It doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life, because that's gonna happen, all what matters is that you're gonna get up."

_The Most Not Bad : Seth MacFarlane as the show's presenter. Between being offensive and mild; he must be only "not bad" !

All in all, with many songs along the way, it seemed like a concert in honor of the Oscars. Well, a nice musical night then.
