Jane Fonda joins the already large list of people not impressed by Seth MacFarlane’s Oscar hosting.
Jane took to her personal blog this week to share some notes about her night at the Oscars. She had mostly positives to talk about, but Jane did mention what many others have voiced over the past week, Seth MacFarlane’s choice of jokes and song numbers weren’t loved by all.
Jane wrote, “What I really didn’t like was the song and dance number about seeing actresses boobs. I agree with someone who said, if they want to stoop to that, why not list all the penises we’ve seen? Better yet, remember that this is a telecast seen around the world watched by families with their children and to many this is neither appropriate or funny. I also didn’t like the remark made about Quvenzhane and Clooney, or the stuff out of Ted’s mouth and all the comments about what women do to get thin for their dresses. Waaaay too much stuff about women and bodies, as though that’s what defines us.”
Jane’s post was also filled with many positives about the night. The iconic actress sang the praises of Charlize Theron, Catherine Zeta-Jones and more. “There was much about the Oscars that I really liked. Let’s start with Charlize Theron dancing with Channing Tatum. Is there anything that beautiful creature can’t do?! I so admire the women who do it all: act brilliantly, sing, and dance…I’m thinking Charlize, Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams, Nicole Kidman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and, of course, Meryl (Mama Mia!). And how about Zeta-Jones doing that song and dance number from the film “Chicago” which, as Michael reminded me, she did TEN years ago! She doesn’t seem to have lost a thing along a way and a lot has happened in her life along the way. Brava to her.”
You can read Jane’s full post on her website, where she even explains how she chose her yellow gown for the night, which was stunning on her!
What did you think about Seth’s jokes and his overall job as the night’s host?
