Flop: Seth MacFarlane announces Oscar nominations, makes Hitler joke

“Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane announced the Oscar nominations this morning with actress Emma Stone.

Ah, yes! Hitler “jokes” are so refreshing … when the comedian is an Obama cheerleader!

That’s right; MacFarlane dropped a Hitler line this morning, and the lame joke totally fell flat for many.

Some were tickled pink by the uber-lame Hitler joke. Weird. We wonder if they were outrageously outraged by Drudge’s headline photo yesterday?

Others were not so amused, and panned MacFarlane’s entire performance.

MacFarlane is hosting the Oscars as well.

Indeed. Stay tuned!

    There was an episode of “Family Guy” in which Peter stood on stage and farted for about twenty seconds, the noise varying in amplitude and pitch. When all the gas was discharged, the audience howled with laughter and applauded generously. Look for a similar incident at the Oscars from Peter’s creator.

      Everything that putz does is a release of intellectual flatus.

    plz rescue Emma! I swear Idiocracy is very nearly our present. Seth couldn’t have made a dime with his shows were it not.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    Seth, you slay me. Mostly because your name is Seth. Your parents must have hated you.

    • Insubordinate

      And he’s not the only “Seth” on Family Guy! Seth Green (another wimp) plays the voice of Chris.

      i named my 2nd son Seth because i was looking for a name that couldn’t be shortened into a stupid nickname. and, oh yeah, it’s a fine biblical name.

        There are a number of Johns in my (extended) family. It can’t be shortened, so what happens? it’s lengthened into Johnny. Fortunately, only one of them was regularly called Johnny.

    “When do we as a nation get over our idea that Seth Macfarlane is brilliant?”

    -That is probably the greatest question asked about Seth!! That can even be the answer to Life, Universe, and Everything.

    • Lord Foggybottom

      Michele Catalano is an Obama lover. Don’t give her statement too much weight, she’s usually pretty dopey.

    • mdtljt

      No, jeffunde…the answer to that will ALWAYS be 42!!! So long, and thanks for all the fish!!!!

      • jeffunde

        I was going to put down 42, but life, universe and everything came up first!

    Believe me, they know what they gotten themselves into.

  • Herman LaClair

    the Oscars is not a sacred event. it celebrates a medium that has, over the years, pushed every envelope there is (check out the movie The Human Centipede for confirmation). so, a mild joking reference to Hitler (he didn’t praise him, did he?) by someone who is capable of MUCH worse seems innocuous. this site seems to be picking the wrong fights lately.

    One more reason not to watch the Oscars, as if I needed another reason.

  • Fido

    MacFarlane is “witty and wholesome”

    like an upturned spittoon.

    He is perfect for the drooling narcissists of Whorelywood,

    as they preen before one another.

    I wish I could muster one iota of interest in this kid….

    Since I never watch a bunch of hollywood liberals path themselves on the back, I’ll have to read about his performance on Twitter. But I’m going to go out on a limb here and predict at least three GW Bush jokes.

  • BrotherMatthias

    Seth is not the sharpest tack in the room, but like Matt Groening — also a kneejerk leftist — he hires the best writers.

      For Seasons 1-3 of Family Guy, I would be inclined to agree. Yet, remember, he is the man responsible for producing all the other seasons and the obnoxiously bad The Winner and Cleveland Show.

  • notenoughtime

    MacFarlane was the best choice to announce the nominations. The Oscars are irrelevant and allow the self absorbed to pat each other on their back as if they actually change the human condition. A moron trying to make a moronic show relevant.

  • disappearing moderate

    If you’re going to make a Hitler joke, it better be a funny one. Seth’s wasn’t. People love Springtime for Hitler in the Producers because the whole joke is just how very offensive Hitler jokes are. And it’s funny.

  • Joe

    Macfarlane is a liberal but he’s no lover of Hollywood. I think he may surprise us all and tear a bigger hole through their egos than Ricky Gervais did. You can hold me to that in case he plays to type and acts like a complete liberal sychophant. Again. I think the big news after the awards will be the shattered egos of Hollywood celebs.

    They still do Oscars??????????

  • madian_kikyou

  • orringtonmom (D)

    Is it too late to take out a patent on the name Adolf Hitler, and the surname alone, Hitler? I’d like to get a nickel every time his name is dropped into a conversation.

  • Wishsong
