The Academy Awards are coming, and frankly, we don’t give a shit. The pretentious garbage of an awards ceremony neglects genre films, treating them like they can’t be art in the eyes of snot-nosed academy members. And each year they try and play to us fans, acting like they give a shit. They don’t, let’s get that straight right now.

ABC released the following promo for this year’s Oscars, which air February 24th. It features host Seth MacFarlane staying at the Bates Motel where Norman is making a ruckus. It’s an obvious reference to the new series, “Bates Motel,” premiering this spring on A&E.

Keep it down. I have a meeting in four hours,” MacFarlane jokes as Janet Leigh screams in terror.

    The only reason I’m watching the Oscars this year is because of Seth MacFarlane. And I hope Ted wins the oscar but everyone knows it won’t.

    I can’t wait for the 6 year old to win the oscar and parade it around in front of all the actors that have been snubbed after multiple nominations through their lifelong careers.

    Seth is dragging me in. Last time I watched the Oscars, a good friend was at the house, David Letterman did the Uma, Oprah, Oprah, Uma “gag” and then said “I’ll be doing that all night long!” Cue uproarious laughter, and my friend stood up, said “Nice of him to warn us up front,” and threw in a movie.

    In my house. On my TV. So, I said: “Good call” and we made an evening of it.

    Haven’t missed it.

    If the Oscars were run by people that are deep into the industry as well as die-hard film geeks, people that really know the ins and outs, what is really good and what is merely clever AND gets genre film… then I would not only watch, but pay attention.

    Otherwise…. seriously? WTF???

    I saw Seth do the This Year’s Nominees Are schtick and holy crap! I have to watch it because he probably won’t be invited back… there is no way all of the joke bombs he was hurling were scripted, no way in hell… In fact, if he is off the cuff at all at the awards, he may get pulled during the show…

    Which would make him a God. A Comedy God. And the earth beneath his feet shall quake and tremble…

    Bring it Seth. Come onstage carrying a chainsaw and wearing a leather face! Do it for us, the people that pay for this shit.

    DO IT!! DO IT FUCKER!! THE HORROR FANS DEFY YOU!! CHAINSAW THESE ASSHOLES AND MAKE THEM BEG FOR JESUS!!!
