Seth MacFarlane enters The Matrix and discusses his favorite movies in these new Oscar videos

Feb. 8, 2013by: Alex Maidy

I was looking forward to seeing how TED director Seth MacFarlane would approach hosting duties for the Oscars until now. Now I am torn between whether he is going to do a great job or a bland version of his usually crude sense of humor. Oscars.com has released two videos for the upcoming Oscar telecast. One is a commercial and the other a brief behind the scenes type clip.

The commercial features Seth MacFarlane spoofing...THE MATRIX? Isn't it a little odd for them to be making fun of a movie that is over a decade old? The joke isn't even that funny.

But, luckily the second video redeems MacFarlane. The star lists his favorite movies including THE SOUND OF MUSIC, DEFENDING YOUR LIFE, and FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY. Watch the whole clip and I bet you laugh at least once.

I hope I laugh more than once when the Academy Awards air on February 24th.

I like Seth McFarlane, and hope the best for his time as host. My favorite host was Hugh Jackman. Man he can perform.

I am 50/50 on him hosting...Sort of like his comedy.. IMO it's 50/50 on the insanely funny/complete shit scale, which is actually kind of a rare thing now that I think about it Haha Didn't dig the Matrix one AT ALL but I actually LOL'd for real at the second one...few pretty funny lines in that one- "I really liked seeing Ben Affleck with a beard." and ESPECIALLY "You have an outdated sense of morality...You probably don't think women should vote either." Had me smiling ear to ear. I like his

Had me smiling ear to ear. I like his witty humor and mostly dislike/hate his obvious and intentionally envelope pushing bits which tend to fall flat most of the time these days.

he's just not a funny guy

i really don't like him. never found him funny. he should just go away. family guy is a crime against humanity for which he should be publicly punished for.

I cant believe they picked Seth to host the Oscars. He isnt funny at all, and second they could have picked worthy actors to host instead of him.
