In the aftermath of my review of the Oscars and that of many others who seemed to agree Seth MacFarlane’s humor was often wanting, I thought I’d offer a postscript as to why for most people the John Wilkes Booth joke didn’t work.
It had nothing to do with Lincoln being a sacred cow and, no, paraphrasing MacFarlane, who defensively rejoindered sarcastically when his joke bombed, it wasn’t a case of it being too soon since Lincoln’s death.
Simply put, along with a host of national critics I found Seth MacFarlane sophomoric, appealing to the basest form of humor, rather than seeking what many might prefer as a cleverer approach, finding unexpected irony while satirizing a situation. And before you point out that the ABC ratings were higher than last year’s, it had little or nothing to do with MacFarlane. The host’s popularity or lack thereof has only a small degree of audience pull. It’s been proven that the highest ratings usually accompany the popularity of the year’s nominees, and most of the 2012 best picture nominees grossed more than $100 million.
Nonetheless, in a discussion with a young actor Monday night, he said he found the Oscar host quite funny, including the John Wilkes Booth remark. I tried to explain my point of view, which was that, rather than cutting edge, to me it was cheap, sort of like banana peel humor. He responded that there were many fans of MacFarlane and that there should be room for that sort of humor on the Oscar show, in order to appeal to all segments of society. I should add that, during all this, he was most respectful and accepting of my point of view, as opposed to the personally insulting comments my review engendered from mostly anonymous readers.
I don’t mind the sort of argument my friend put forth, but still believe the Oscar show should elevate itself above playground or frat party humor. A lot of tween types find gross situations very humorous, and this extends into the teen years and for some even into their third decade. However, it is also true that life among school-age kids can be hell for those who are dissimilar, with cliques abounding, separating the in-crowd from those it deems wanting.
If you’re different, maybe not athletic or pretty or, God forbid gay (yes, even in today’s more tolerant age) life can be pretty horrid. Fortunately, [...]

This year’s Oscars show on ABC wrapped after a bit over three and a half hours and there were a bunch of great moments, a bit of tedium and a lot of disappointment over the tasteless antics of host Seth MacFarlane.
Look, I’m not a prude, though I’ve ranted at the likes of Ricky Gervais when he hosted the Golden Globes. You don’t have to be sweetness and light and/or just mildly funny, but as Tina Fey and Amy Poehler displayed at the Golden Globes you can find the right mix to be biting and clever without resorting to cheap, shocking and sometimes hurtful jokes.
I was neither backstage nor in the control booth, but I can guess something must have happened after the overlong 17-minute opening segment, wherein MacFarlane early on cast mock aspersion at last year’s Best Actor winner, Jean Dujardin, as essentially having since disappeared, when it’s clear his stellar career is mostly anchored in France. And a sometimes funny bit with William Shatner, beaming in from the future as Star Trek’s Captain Kirk, became somewhat surreal when he warned MacFarlane that his reviews were destined to be pretty bad.
Mercifully interspersed with the host’s puerile humor were musical bits during which Channing Tatum danced quite masterfully with Charlize Theron, and Daniel Radcliffe and Joseph Gordon-Levitt sang and danced, aided by the surprisingly excellent vocal talents of Mr. MacFarlane. He wasn’t just on-key, he sang like he’d been in musical theatre. And, upon doing some follow-up research, I learned he’d sung at Carnegie Hall and Royal Albert Hall in London. Who knew?
During these moments and when he played it straight, he was great — poised, handsome and charming. But on occasion he spewed classless material, which I’m sure he thought was very funny. He absolutely bombed in a joke ostensibly crediting Daniel Day-Lewis with getting into Lincoln’s head, but then indicated he hadn’t done as well as had John Wilkes Booth. The audience gasped.
From that point on, when he was on camera he essentially introduced the next guests and did so with professional aplomb. Was it a coincidence or did someone rip up the rest of his cue cards?
As to the rest of the show, it was professional and sometimes spectacular. The spoof of Flight with hand puppets was delightful and the tribute to a few recent musicals with some of the casts singing live was terrific, [...]

To create a dramatic arrivals area, impressive stage and intimate dinner setting for the world?s leading actors who are gathering on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013, the SAG Awards® staff must transform the Shrine Auditorium entrance and the adjoining Exposition Center. The Shrine complex is a Los Angeles landmark built in 1920 in Spanish Colonial Revival style with Moorish detailing. It’s grandiose and beautiful on the outside, but the inner space of the Shrine?s Exposition Center, with its 34,000 square foot wooden floor, paint-trimmed overhangs and bare columns, has to be redefined for each event.
This year’s SAG Awards stage and décor is a contemporary interpretation of the streamline moderne style that emerged during the 1930s that pays homage to old movies palaces of that era. Architectural details such as paneled molding are highlighted by a color scheme of black, white and silver, which will be transformed by the application of colored lighting appropriate to each segment of the show. Among the design elements are a broken proscenium arch that is echoed by the broken frame surrounding the oversized screen set against a field of fiber-optic stars upstage, on which the nominated performances and tributes will be projected. On either side, vertical steel tubing echoes the organ pipes so often found in vintage movie theaters and 10-foot tall Actor® statues sit on platinum pedestals in front of them. Actor® recipients will move from the showroom floor to the stage via steps edged in aluminum and silver, while presenters will make their entrances and exits through oversized airy metal gates A black and white checkerboard floor complements the entire look.
FOR THE STAR-STUDDED ARRIVALS AND TO TRANSFORM THE SHOWROOM the SAG Awards will:
Lay 15,872 square feet of red carpet in the arrivals area, edged by 585 lineal feet of hedges
Accommodate 300 fans in three-row six-foot high bleachers placed along an 180? section of the red carpet arrivals area
In the event of rain, protect the red carpet from the elements by 23,530 square feet of tenting
Post five 10? Actor® statues along the red carpet and onstage
Lay 11,800 square feet of black carpet in the interior Shrine entrance and the showroom
Drape the interior Shrine entrance with 4,575 square feet of charcoal/silver shimmer fabric
Post three 10? Actor® statues along [...]
Bradley Cooper, Viola Davis, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Justin Timberlake and Sigourney Weaver to Present at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards
Bradley Cooper, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, and Justin Timberlake will be presenters at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, Executive Producer Jeff Margolis announced today.
First-time SAG Awards nominee Bradley Cooper is recognized this year for his lead role in David O. Russell’s ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ and as a cast member in the film. In addition to ‘Playbook,’ Cooper had three other films in release in 2012: ‘The Words,’ ‘Hit and Run,’ and ‘The Place Beyond the Pines.’ In May, he’ll be seen in ‘The Hangover Part III’ and later this year will star opposite his ‘Playbook’ co-star Jennifer Lawrence in the suspense drama ‘Serena.’ He’ll also reunite with Russell to work on the director’s film about the Abscam scandal, also starring Christian Bale.
Viola Davis is a four-time Screen Actors Guild Award® nominee and two-time recipient of the Actor® in 2012 for her lead performance as Aibileen Clark and as a cast member in ‘The Help.’ Davis’ previous nominations were for her supporting and cast performances in ‘Doubt’ opposite Meryl Streep. She was recently seen in ‘Won’t Back Down’ and will next star in the drama ‘Beautiful Creatures’ opposite Emma Thompson.
Anne Hathaway, who just received a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Fantine in ‘Les Miserables,’ earned her first SAG Awards nomination in 2006 as a cast member of Ang Lee’s ‘Brokeback Mountain’ and her first lead female actor nod in 2009 for ‘Rachel Getting Married.’ This year, she?s nominated twice: As supporting female actor in ‘Les Miserables’ and as a member of the film’s cast. In 2012, Hathaway starred opposite Christian Bale in director Christopher Nolan’s third and final installment of his Batman trilogy, ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’ Next year, she will give voice once again to Jewel the macaw in the animated sequel ‘Rio 2.’
Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe winning actor Hugh Jackman is a two-time SAG Awards nominee this year for his portrayal of Jean Valjean in ‘ Les Miserables’ and as a member of the film’s cast. In July, audiences will see him reprise the role of Wolverine in the 6th installment of the ‘X-Men’ franchise, ‘The Wolverine.’ He is currently filming ‘Prisoners’ with Melissa Leo, Jake Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis, directed by Denis Villeneuve.
In 2010, Jennifer Lawrence earned her first SAG Award nomination for her performance in ‘Winter’s Bone.’ The Golden Globe recipient is a double nominee this year, [...]
