RE: When the “Boobs” number was playing the camera focused on the female actors as they were named. All of them looked upset.

It was ALL AN ACT. Charlize Theron looked "upset", and then a few moments later, went to the stage to do a dance while Seth Macfarlane sang.





RE: One was named that had never had her boobs exposed on the big screen and she gave a smile and at thumbs up.

Jennifer Lawrence. At least she didn't "pretend" to be upset.

Worst. Host. Ever.

Actually, in terms of getting people to watch, it may have been the best host ever. I never watch the Oscars but tuned in to see it this time.

And I thought his material was quite witty. He is obviously very talented. It certainly was not in the gutter like some of the stand up shows I have been to.

Actually, you can see worse than what is being complained about when you watch Leno. If Leno did not have a penis to joke about he would lose half his material.

McFarlane made a porn reference less than 10 seconds into his opening monologue, the idea that this group of folks and their entire industry has any decorum or class is nonsensical, let alone that this “awards show” is anything but more putrid filth from them is laughable.

There is no class in Hollywood, it is a land of pedophiles and hedonists, using their venue to try to force their warped values on the rest of us.

Anyone remotely outraged by anything Seth did is an idiot, he did what he has always done, and fact no one complained when it was announced he would be the host shows you just how much they care.

I give Brad Pitt for being a braver man than I.. not enough alcohol on the planet to get me to wet my wick in Billy Bob’s sloppy seconds, no matter how hot she may look.

There, I will be just as crass as hollywood.

Women both in the audience and watching at home were offended by the song, calling it crass and inappropriate.

The Oscars were hosted by Seth McFarlane... famous for "Family Guy" and "Ted", both comedies that are enjoyed because they are crass and inappropriate. Exactly what did they expect?

That was the funniest film I saw all year!!!

Seems others thought so as well. MacFarlane's vulgar, hilarious, talking teddy bear film earned over a half billion dollars worldwide, far more than any of the films "honored" for the coveted Best Picture award.

If Hollywood's sole purpose on this planet is to entertain us, why wasn't "Ted" recognized? And Jennifer Lawrence should've won Best Actress for "Hunger Games" --a film people actually watched, unlike the one she was awarded for.

And finally. Hey academy, want more people to watch the Oscars? Try getting the nominated movies to DVD sooner so we can watch them at home and then we'll actually give a hoot whether they win or not. It's hard to care about movies if we haven't seen them and as it is, "Argo" was the only film I've had a chance to watch. The telecast used to always be in late March or early April after pretty much all the nominated films had hit the rental market. Now it's February and there are still many nominated films that have yet to hit DVD or pay-per-view.

It’s also amazing how actresses in classic films managed to play “emotionally charged scenes” and never once bare their boobs.

It's called acting.

Acting the part of a fighter is different than simply filming a real fight. One requires acting, one does not. A good actor can appear to have been beaten, while any idiot can actually be beaten.

A woman baring her breasts to make the viewer sense a sexual scene, is using the tools of a stripper, not an actress.

The only thing that didn’t work on the show was the WAY TOO LONG Captain Kirk skit. The rest was pretty good.

He sang a song, in a tux, with a campy 50's show tune feel, with a team of male dancers in tuxes, twirling and smiling. He mentioned the names of the actresses and their films. Nothing more.

He didn't SHOW the boobs (although the multi-million-dollar productions did, and numerous webpages catalogue them, and PR firms hyped the movies for public viewing). Maybe someone would show false "offense" at the actresses, who showed their boobs, for money, with full knowledge in advance that their boobs would be seen by as many people as they could induce to see the film.

“No that would be Whoopi Goldberg.”

When was that? I can’t remember. I believe it was the last time I watched the thing.

I just remember South Park showing Whoopi hosting the awards, and the only thing she would say over and over was “Republicans are stupid”, with the crowd laughing every time.

“You can use the word : VAGINA in the title of a play with nary a peep, and not use the word Boobs?”

Anyone beside me wholly fed up with the annual re-run of “Vagina Monologues” in your college campus communities?

Of course, they ignored the most offensive joke of the night, and with Kristen Chenoweth singing it right beside him.


Here's to all the losing works of art, from Lincoln to Amour.
To the disappointed actors wondering what they dressed up for.
Now the real performance start, with phony smiles at the ball.
Here's to the losers, bless them all!

Here's to nominee Quvenzhané, lift up that little head.
You'll be at the future Oscars, when the rest of us are dead.
You have all Tom Cruise's talent and you're equally as tall!
Here's to the losers, bless them all!

Oh, Bradley Cooper! Get your chin off the floor.
Here's your silver lining: You'll do Hangover 4!
And the Best Supporting Actress nominees who lost to Anne Hathaway: Amy Adams, Jacki Weaver, Sally Field and Helen Hunt...
Hathaway took away your Oscars, don't you think that girl's a... dorable?


Notice the rhyme that didn't rhyme?

I did.

We haven’t seen Jennifer Lawrence’s boobs at all.

We saw your boobs
We saw your boobs
In the movie that we saw, we saw your boobs.

Kristen Stewart, we saw your boobs in “On the Road”
And in “Monster” we saw Charlize Theron’s

And Scarlett Johansson, we saw them on our phones.

Jessica Chastain, we saw your boobs in “Lawless”

And “The Reader”
And whatever you’re shooting right now.

We saw your boobs
We saw your boobs.

It's a good thing that nobody wrote a song about Richard Gere in American Gigolo.

Hehehehe...

I remember seeing Halle Berry on some show talking about her moving that was out (Monster’s Ball?) and at the end she grasps her breasts with both hands and said something like, “...and you get to see these!”

I’m sure she’s on the list of outraged great American actresses.

Right! I don't think this great American Actress ever showed her boobs. Not a classical beauty, but classy:
