Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane was the host for the 85th annual Academy Awards, which aired Sunday night live on ABC and CTV. So just how “animated” would the edgy MacFarlane dare to be?
Well, he sang a song called, “We Saw Your Boobs.” The tune recited a lengthy list of actresses who have exposed themselves in films.
The “We Saw Your Boobs” song occurred during a faux-flashback sequence that was part of MacFarlane’s monologue, aided by none other than Canadian William Shatner, a.k.a. Captain Kirk of Star Trek.
Captain Kirk supposedly had come back in time to stop MacFarlane from being named the worst Oscars host ever. The question, of course, is whether it worked.
Well, the MacFarlane-Kirk bit went on way too long for my tastes. The first half was funny. The second half dragged. But overall it did its job, I suppose, which was to utilize the beloved Captain Kirk to make MacFarlane more palatable to movie snobs who never watch Family Guy.
