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!
