We are sorry to report that funny man Seth MacFarlane will not be gracing the stage as host for the 2014 Academy Awards. He took to his official Twitter page on Monday to let his many fans know the news.
He tweeted, “Traumatized critics exhale: I’m unable to do the Oscars again. Tried to make it work schedule-wise, but I need sleep. However, I highly–> –> recommend the job, as Zadan and Meron are two of the most talented producers in the business. My suggestion for host is Joaquin Phoenix.”
Do you think Seth should reconsider? If not him, then should Joaquin Phoenix handle the hosting duties next year? Otherwise, leave us your thoughts in the comments about who should follow Seth to host the 2014 Oscars.
There are already reports floating around the internet about the host of the upcoming 86th Annual Academy Awards in 2014. “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane hosted the 85th Annual Oscars, but commented that he would not be returning for another round.
After hosting the golden statuette show once already, he took to his Twitter account to say, “No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though.”
There are rumors making the rounds that Seth was asked — but the rumors do not suggest that an answer was given in the affirmative. The show’s producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan will be back again next year and a source has revealed that they have approached Seth after the show garnered 40.3 million viewers in 2013.
The source said, “After defending his performance, the producers reached out to Seth and invited him back to host the show again. He’s not sure if he’s going to do it, but he has to decide within the next couple of weeks.”
Stay tuned — we will let you know what we’ve learned about Seth MacFarlane hosting next year’s Oscars as soon as the information is made available!
Anne Hathaway wore the above Prada dress to the Oscars on Sunday night. She turned heads and the gown even garnered Anne’s nipples its very own Twitter account. Apparently she was slated to wear something from her favorite house, Valentino, but didn’t want to clash with someone wearing a similar gown.
In a statement to “Women’s Wear Daily”, she said, “It came to my attention late Saturday night that there would be a dress worn to the Oscars that is remarkably similar to the Valentino I had intended to wear. And so I decided it was best for all involved to change my plans.”
She went on to say, “Though I love the dress I did wear, it was a difficult last-minute decision as I had so looked forward to wearing Valentino in honor of the deep and meaningful relationship I have enjoyed with the house and with Valentino himself. I deeply regret any disappointment caused.”
Is she making a big deal out of nothing? What do you think? Also, let us know your thoughts on the pointy-boobed dress that she did wear to the event! Take it or leave it?
It was a move that no one in Hollywood could have seen coming, but the news was announced yesterday that “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane is taking on hosting duties for the 85th Annual Academy Awards next February!
A Hollywood source said, “No one saw this coming. But I think he’s a great choice. It’s all part of that ongoing struggle to get younger people to watch the Oscars.”
Another source said that “other attempts to make the Oscars edgier and hipper have not always worked.”
Seth reacted to the news in his own statement, calling it “an overwhelming privilege. I will do my utmost to live up to the high standards set forth by my predecessors. I hope they don’t find out I hosted the Charlie Sheen Roast.”
Will Seth MacFarlane bring in the younger viewing audience that the Oscars so desperately desire? What do you think? Will you watch the show next February? Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts!
Apparently there is someone out there with way too much time on their hands. If you’ve watched last night’s Academy Awards, then chances are you’ve noticed Angelina Jolie in that pretty black dress — and HER LEG!
Angelina strutted the red carpet and showed off the slit in her black velvet Atelier Versace dress by striking several poses with her leg cocked out. Since, a fan has decided to create a Twitter account for Angie’s right leg — and don’t laugh because the account already has over 12,000 followers on the social networking service.
The Academy said, “Angelina Jolie’s appearance got a lot of people talking – 3,399 tweets per minuet about her in fact.”
Look at meeee!!
Behold: it’s me!!
Still here. Great view, but thank god for the slit in this dress.
You have to admit I’m one hell of a leg.
You’ve got to admit, the leg is a bit of an attention whore. What about her left leg? We had to look and see if there was a Twitter account setup for the lost leg and lo and behold — there was. Angie’s left leg is self-described on Twitter as “I just wasn’t cut out for primetime on the 84th Oscars.”
Too funny. What did you think of Angelina’s dress? Love it or hate it? And what about that pose?
