It had been announced quite a while ago that the comedic genius behind Family Guy and Ted would be this year’s host for the 85th annual Academy Awards, which will air this Sunday.

Personally, I was ecstatic when I heard this news. MacFarlane is one of my favorite comedians and I knew that he would not disappoint. He never does.

Now, MacFarlane is disagreeing with my opinion. “It’s a really bad match,” MacFarlane told CNN. “I’m the wrong guy to do this.” Why would he say this?

Apparently, he feels that his sense of humor is a little too raunchy for such a “thin-skinned room.” I mean, I can see his point. The Oscars is the most highbrow awards show out there, and although a lot of the nominees are young, a lot of them are also older and more conservative.

All I know is, MacFarlane will not hold back, and personally, I’m okay with that.

We think about the “good old days” when things were simpler, people had more mature mindsets and men and women both exemplified class and chivalry when it came to dating. We use the term “old-fashioned” to describe people who employ seemingly traditional ideals of […]
