Commentary Roundup: Critiques of Oscars 2013

audience at the 2013 OscarsI keep wanting to write something about this, and I may in the next day or two, but in the meantime, here are very thoughtful analyses of The Man Who Loved the Sound of His Own Voice, Seth MacFarlane, and Hollywood’s love of the cruel.

And now because we’re all so pissed after reading all of this, here’s something to remind us that some people in Hollywood, even award winners, are pretty awesome people:

    I knew I wanted to miss Seth McFarlane, and I was right – no real surprises other than how utterly meh his dudebroniousness is at this point. Note to Seth, good comics *evolve* – unless it’s Ministry of Funny Walks calibre, any schtick has a short half life.

    But pls, can someone spare me the Exceptional Wimmenz! This shit is the stuff that really needs a content note. I could just suck out my eyeballs with tiny plungers. Snarky’s made Allyssa’s points better, lulzier, and sans the ‘can’t we all just get along?’ ish, like a million times already.

    (Side notation, Freddie de[boner] is *still* ‘splainin on the internet?)

    Looking forward to your future posts on this.
