    Oscars Talkback 2013?

    So I didn't really watch it, just caught a glimpse or two. I've read some 'meh' reviews re: Seth McFarlane, I've also heard some good. but it's the oscars usually overblown overlong and the host has a hell of a time trying to keep that from being dull.

    So what say you guys??

    I thought it was alright - it was long, but I blame the constant commercial breaks more than anything else for that. There's really no reason this should run more than three hours, but for a while it was 'award, commercial, award, commercial, award, commercial, etc.'

    MacFarlane did OK - he's got a good stage presence, timing, and singing voice. (I did like the focus on musicals/scores). A few of the jokes were groaners, but nothing as bad as what some people feared from him, I think.

    I was wondering if people would get tired of the musical stuff, as Seth is a song and dance man at heart it seems. he lost a good amount of weight it looks like, though he never looked fat. Talented guy but to me he tends to rely on a formula that has grown (again to me) extremely tired and stale.
