Was Seth Macfarlane the Worst Oscars Host Ever?

Planet Ivy writes:
The Family Guy creator made awards ceremony even less bearable with crude and lazy jokes and tasteless songs...
The Oscars expects its presenters to be broad, but not lazy. And it welcomes gentle ribbing, but not charmless word-assaults on the rich and famous. But, confused that this was a roast rather than a televised show-off for millionaires, MacFarlane went on trying to ruin his chances of making any friends at the after-party... (Culture, Seth MacFarlane, The Academy Awards)

I thought he was the best host in years...
.... I was laughing out load multiple times, I thought the whole show was quite good this year in fact.

I personally found him way more fun and way less contrived then Ricky Gervais..

This is like the third year in a row that the host has been "the worst" lol

In recent years, the worst host was James Franco. Anne Hathaway at least put in some effort with him. James Franco was just uninterested. I thought it was disrespectful on his part. As for Seth McFarlane, he wasn't terrible or stupendous. He put in a solid shot. The problem is there's nothing to compare his performance to as he isn't professionally known for being a host, performer or entertainer.

Seth did a good job and brought much needed flare to the stale Oscars ceremony. After years of mediocrity, 2013 actually had a host that was worth listening to.

Not the worst...but still rather disgusting.
In what world do tasteless "We Saw Your ****s" singing lines and Lincoln jokes have a place in an event intended for all ages like the Oscars, especially so for a nominated 9-year old in the crowd?

It wasn't all bad, but those parts still got under my skin.

It was only a few years ago....
Hathaway and Franco anyone??? That was a bomb. Not to Ann's fault but that was painful.

Whoopi Goldberg (in 1999), Ellen, Chris Rock, (not trying to pick on minorities)& Franco... They almost made Seth seem like a (albeit rough around the edges) Billy Crystal understudy.

They're getting more pretentious with expectations hyped when a new hosts' is introduced.

When is Kaz hirai going to get his chance to host.

I like Seth I think he's cool, but his bits were horrible. That shatner one was atrocious.

I like family guy just one can not put up the same humor on a show intended for the audience the oscars have...
Still James Frnco was the worst, really even slenderman could have been funier and much worth to watch...

I liked Seth a lot!

no he was not that worst host i have seen worst. the oscars signed a comedian known for below the belt jokes and macfarlane just did what was expected, he could have done better of course but to be branded as the worst host would be unfair. the jokes were funny and entertaining if he did not have done that the show might be relatively boring.
