Well, last night happened. Seth MacFarlane hosted, balancing the did-you-just-go-there style of humor for which he’s so often known and the showmanship you’d expect from an Oscar host. He took to the challenge, and for the most part, he landed. Yes, I would more openly welcome Tina Fey and Amy

Every day of this Oscar season has been, as Sheryl Crow would say, a winding road – more than any other awards season I can recall. At last, we’ve almost reached the end: Oscar Sunday is just two days away. All the red carpets, all the acceptance speeches, all the
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) unsurprisingly handed its best film and best director prizes to Ben Affleck’s Argo this past Sunday.

Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone unveiled the Oscar nominations last Thursday. MacFarlane will also host the ceremony, which takes place on Feb. 24, but with several major organizations still doling out nods and wins, the Oscar race is far from over since voters have until Feb. 19 to turn in

Here’s hoping everyone’s had a great holiday season! But for avid Oscar watchers, this time of the year brings more than gay happy meetings and silent nights; it also gives us one of our favorite things: the heart of the Oscar season.
