Seth MacFarlane Says There's "No Way" He'll Host the Oscars Again
Seth MacFarlane won't be quitting his day job anytime soon! One day after being largely criticized by the media and viewers for his oft-offensive jokes during the Osars on Sunday, Feb. 24, the comedian has decided that Hollywood hosting is not for him.
A curious user reached out to the 39-year-old comedian on Twitter and asked if he would ever consider hosting the prestigious awards ceremony again.
"No way," MacFarlane replied. "Lotta fun to have done it, though."
On Sunday, the Family Guy creator took to the stage enthusiastically with a slew of one-liners that rubbed some viewers the wrong way, including jokes about domestic violence, foreign accents and Adele's weight.
"Rex Reed will be out here to review Adele's performance of 'Skyfall,'" the host said with a grin following the British singer's powerful rendition of her Academy Award-winning track. The crack was a nod to the New York Observer's movie critic, who slammed Identity Thief's Melissa McCarthy as a "female hippo" earlier this month.
But the funnyman's offensive jokes didn't stop there. MacFarlane also made a misogynistic joke when introducing Kathryn Bigelow's epic Zero Dark Thirty.
"The film was a triumph and also a celebration of every woman's innate ability to never ever let anything go," he chuckled as the audience groaned.
MacFarlane isn't the first comedian to come under fire for attempting a few button-pushing jabs. Ricky Gervais was similarly panned after hosting the Golden Globes in 2012 after he made jokes about everyone from Kim Kardashian to Mel Gibson to Jodie Foster. He hosted the Globes a total of three times.
But that didn't stop the British comedian from offering a few pointers to MacFarlane one day before the big show.
"Seth MacFarlane have a blast at The Oscars," he tweeted at his fellow funnyman. "Don't hold back. Just call me if you run out of Scientology & holocaust gags."
