Seth MacFarlane Explains 5 A.M. Hitler Joke Dud To Oscar Committee!

| Filed under: Ben AffleckFilm FlickersTacky & TrueOscarsEmma StoneSeth MacFarlane

Geez, Seth! If the joke needs to be explained, it was a dud in the first place!

ET interviewed Seth MacFarlane shortly after he and Emma Stone announced the nominations for the 85th Annual Academy Awards this morning!

Did the reporter demand to know why Ben Affleck was snubbed? Or which rock the Oscar voters vacationed under while Dark Knight Rises and Avengers smashed the box office records!

Nope! He just wanted to know why the soon-to-be Oscar host joked about Adolph Hitler — in regards to the Austrian-German film Amour — and whether or not his wisecrack was pre-approved.

Ch-ch-check out his mumbly response about "slipping it in at the last minute" when "one thing led to another" (above)!

Yes, Seth. That is what she said.

Watch Seth on Sunday, February 24 in what could be the most controversial Academy Awards ceremony yet!

    F**k 'em if they can't take a joke.

    It was a decent joke, real problem is that awful movie being anywhere near the Oscars in the first place.

    I used to think he was funny but his arrogance and bad attitude has gotten old. Now he thinks he's the new Ricky Gervais. Seth you are no Gervais. You're over.

    Seth isn't arrogant, if you knew anything about him you'd know. Watch a few interviews.
    Can't wait for these Oscars, just because of Seth. Couldn't care less about the actual awards this year.

    Sorry, off-topic but I am very concerned about the increasing problems of this site: grammar and spelling. In another article "parents doesn't" which should be "don't" since "parents" is plural. In this article "Adolph Hitler" is actually spelled "Adolf". Another reader of this site mentioned "winder" which probably should mean "wider" in its context. These problems started a while ago and really keep getting worse.
