Seth MacFarlane Gets Help From the Future


So the critics were wondering how Seth MacFarlane would handle the opening of the Oscars. Would he be irreverent like his Family Guy counterparts or would he understand the honor of the ceremony and respect everyone? Well somehow he was able to combine both. With the help of William Shatner, MacFarlane was able to do the numbers that he would have liked to do as writer of Family Guy ridiculing the A-list celebrities, as well as perform the numbers that are Oscar acceptable. William Shatner allowed him to see the numbers he would have performed as the Family Guy creator (with hilarious numbers such as "We Saw Your Boobs"- the best Oscar medley ever and Seth MacFarlane making out with Sally Field). MacFarlane then corrected his errors doing "Academy acceptable" numbers such as Channing Tatum and Charlize Theron dancing to "The Way You Looked Tonight" and Joseph Gordon Levitt and Daniel Radcliff dancing to "High Hopes." In a way MacFarlane was able to satisfy the older audience that usually watches the Oscars and gain the younger audience that ABC hoped to draw to attract higher advertising dollars. With Seth MacFarlane anything can happen so stay tuned to see what else occurs during this roller coaster event.
