Oscars 2013 Best & Worst Moments
2. Skyfall Being Nominated for Anything Except 'Worst Bond Film Ever': Love us or hate us for saying this, but it seems the only reason the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, got any nominations this year is because it's the 50th anniversary of the Bond franchise and the Academy wanted to celebrate it. Otherwise, it just doesn't make any sense that the latest Bond film should be nominated for anything but "Worst Bond Film Ever" because, well, it really was pretty bad. Nonetheless, the film did win the award for Best Song for Adele's Skyfall theme, and for that we are pleased because Adele and her Bond song are awesome.
1. Seth McFarland as Host
It's classic Hollywood behavior: we build 'em up and then we tear 'em down. That seems to be the case with Seth McFarland as host of the Oscars this year. Hopes were high that McFarland might bring his snooty, Stewie Griffin edge to the broadcast, however, he failed to deliver much snoot or edge, or anything else mildly entertaining. Instead, McFarland put together a few song and dance bits that no doubt showed off his singing chops, but it all came off a lot more like bits he would do if he were hosting the Tony awards or something. Either way, at least we gave him a shot and got to learn two important lessons: 1. the search for the "right" Oscar host continues (Tina Fey, anyone? Shatner agrees), and 2. McFarland might finally be ready to come out of the closet and admit that he's...ready to do a Broadway show!
