From his numerous song-and-dance numbers to his many off-color jokes about everyone from Chris Brown and Rihanna to John Wilkes Booth, host Seth MacFarlane definitely wasn’t afraid to ruffle some feathers during the 85th Academy Awards. It remains to be seen how the “Family Guy” creator’s involvement in the show affected its ratings, but for now we want to know what you all thought of his hosting abilities.
There have been a range of hosts brought on board the Oscars over the past five years, with longtime favorites Billy Crystal and Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin trading places with the likes of Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway and James Franco. Though MacFarlane isn’t as risqu� as, say, Ricky Gervais, his raunchy humor that appeals to young audiences might have the older crowd hoping Academy Awards producers return to tried-and-true hosts in 2014.
So what did you think? Was MacFarlane a riot or did he go too far with his comedy? Who was your favorite Oscars host of the last five years? Vote below, and tell us why you chose who you did in the comments.
