The Oscar’s are now such a media cluster fuck, that announcing the potential winners is an event in itself. Emma Stone and Seth MacFarlane announced the nominees this morning on ABC and some insiders are speculating that Seth may be too irreverent for the prestigious Oscars after he cracked some bad jokes.

“I’m Seth MacFarlane, the host of the Oscars. If you don’t know who I am just pretend I’m Donny Osmond.” He opened.

Unfortunately, no one knows who Donny Osmond is either. MacFarlane then took it too far when he made a Hitler joke.  Too soon, Seth, too soon!

“I read Amour was co-produced in Austria and Germany,” Said MacFarlane.  “The last time Austria and Germany got together and co-produced something it was Hitler, but this was much better. Highly recommended.”

Oh my God, Seth, you are so edgy. I can’t believe you said that, it’s only been like 70 years.  Some of those people killed by Hitler might still be alive!  I’m gonna let this slide MacFarlane, but if you make a William McKinley joke I’m calling for  a boycott!

And so you don’t have to look anywhere else I’ve listed the nominees. The important ones anyway. Nobody gives a fuck about ‘Achievement in Sound Mixing.’
