Poll Results: What grade would you give Seth MacFarlane’s performance as Oscar host this year?

The final tally is in on this guy’s grade as Oscar host:


– B: 13 votes
– A: 5 votes
– C: 5 votes
– F: 2 votes
– D: 1 vote

So, the general consensus seems to be that MacFarlane was pretty good, but not great. I can get behind that. Even though the Oscars felt more like a roast with him at the helm, I think he did a better job than the hosts of the last couple years. I’m glad he won’t be doing it again next year — it’s good to have variety — but I don’t have any major complaints with his performance.

This Week’s Poll: Last week, I wrote about my experience of seeing 2001: A Space Odyssey on the big screen in 70mm. This made me think about Stanley Kubrick and his impressive directorial career. My question for you this week is: what is your favorite Stanley Kubrick film? I’m allowing for two votes since it’s damn near impossible to pick just one. Really curious to see how this one plays out.

Have a great week everyone!

    Close the poll quick, Close the poll quick! LOL (aka “FIRST!”)

    Glad you allowed two choices. Also glad you said “Favorite”. I had to pick The Shining, natch, and then I went with Full Metal Jacket! Hoo Rah!

    Man, that’s a really hard decision to pick Kubrick’s two best films. I ended up going with 2001 and Barry Lyndon, but I love pretty much all of his movies.

    Glad I’m not the only who disliked his “show” 🙂 For new poll – 2001 and The Shining, though Eyes Wide Shut was really close to being my choice 🙂

    I think I gave him a C. He’s not bad actually, I enjoyed his musical segments and he has a surprisingly good voice! That said, I’m still not a fan of his.
