Reel Facts & Opinions

FACT: Seth MacFarlane, creator of the hit TV show FAMILY GUY, has been selected to host the 85th Oscars this coming February.
MacFarlane made his directorial debut on the big-screen this year with the smash-comedy TED, and he also provides several voices for FAMILY GUY, in which he often embraces song-and-dance routines.

OPINION: This Blogger is beginning to feel that that too much attention gets put on who is hosting the Oscars. Sure it’s important; they’ve got to bring in a wide audience, hold that audience captive, and most of all, don’t be boring. But every year there seems to be more attention put on the damned host than what the Oscars are all about; the movies. The Oscars are about a celebration of film, and the award ceremony is all about who wins, who loses, and how much leg Angelina Jolie shows off.
But besides that, MacFarlane’s snappy humor and sharp writing skills should bring the required energy levels needed for the Oscars; and most of the world will finally get to see what the man looks like…

What say you?
