You know, just like how J.J. Abrams said he wouldn't direct the new "Star Wars."
Response was mixed to Seth MacFarlane's hosting of the 85th Annual Academy Awards (personally, we thought he came off best whenever he didn't try so hard), but even if Oscar ends up wanting him back for another go-round, the "Family Guy" creator doesn't want the gig, according to The Live Feed.
Remember when Seth MacFarlane delighted (or offended, or bewildered, or whatever) millions of viewers with "We Saw Your Boobs," the rousing opening ditty at the 85th Annual Academy Awards? It seems like only yesterday but it was actually two days ago.
Some people loved it, some people hated it, some people couldn't care less. Regardless of the wildly divergent response to one of the most unexpected (and subversive) musical numbers in the history of the Oscars, "We Saw Your Boobs" is practically begging for a companion piece, one that focuses on ... well, you know, male nudity, which is certain a growing (HA!) phenomenon in cinema in recent years.
"Argo," the big winner at this year's Oscars, was a gripping, nail-biting caper that left you on the age of your seats, in the tradition of other thrilling capers like "Reservoir Dogs," "Ocean's 11," and "Heist." But when you think of the stuff that made "Argo" so good — the quiet freneticism, the looming danger, and, of course, Ben Affleck's epic 'do — you wouldn't necessarily factor Macauley Culkin into the equation.
With that being said, the internet doesn't forget anything, which is why this pitch-perfect "Argo"-"Home Alone" mashup makes the blood-hungry villains of "Argo" look merely like concerned babysitters, desperate to keep Catherine O'Hara from flying the friendly skies Kevin-less. And it is marvelous.
It's fun to describe certain photos of celebrities with what pop culture characters they've played, whether they be from comic books, YA novels or fairy tale re-imaginings. You know, if you see a picture of Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway together, you can be all like, "Oh it's Wolverine and Catwoman!" Fun, right? For hours, man.
Well, the 85th Annual Academy Awards brought together two pop culture icons that we never thought would ever cross each other's paths: Katniss Everdeen and the Joker.
Jennifer Lawrence was the toast of the town at the Oscars this year — her awesome dress, her tripping up the steps to accept her award for Best Actress, her all-around Jennifer Lawrence-ness brought some fun and excitement to an otherwise very strange and ultimately kinda mediocre show. It makes complete sense that she would catch the eye of one of the most notorious lotharios in Hollywood, the man who's reportedly bedded hundreds of women — and a lot of 'em much younger than him, at that.
Watch Jack Nicholson interrupt Jennifer Lawrence's interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos — first without and then with his trademark Jack sunglasses. And watch Jennifer react as any hot young lady star would.

Hot People Looking Hot: Oscars 2013
We don't know if you've heard, but something went down last night. Something happened in Hollywood, something the world saw and won't stop talking about.
Yeah, we're talking about
Jennifer Lawrence falling down the 2013 Oscars. (Well, and J-Law's tumble, but we'll get to that.)
Since this is NextMovie and we're not really the type to come at things head-on, we knew that we wanted to recap the Oscars, but how? The only way we know: With a game of Eff, Marry, Kill.
This isn't a hot-or-not, more of a thoughful, mature look at the night that was. (Cough.) Our trusty FMKers ranked the three surprises from the night that shocked us most — Ang Lee's win for Best Director in a wide-open field, "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Skyfall" tying for Best Sound Editing, and, of course, Jennifer Lawrence falling ass-over-Dior on her way up to accept her Best Actress statue — and DTR. What shocks can we live with? What do we sneaky love? What gets the knife?
Before you read our panelists' picks and rationale below, please vote in our poll and explain yourself in the comments. Now grab your ballgowns and join us for Eff, Marry, Kill: Oscar Surprises 2013 Edition! Get More »
If there was one trend in the movies of 2012, it was the ever-present handjob. Yup, the only HJ had more screen time in 2012 than Jessica Chastain, and that's saying something.
Funny or Die didn't let the trend die quietly, editing last night's Oscars to make it look like Sandra Bullock gave out an award that would make even Seth MacFarlane blush: Best Handjob in a Leading Role. And, oh, there were many! Between "The Master," "On the Road," and "Hyde Park on Hudson" (wait, how did we miss that?), 2012 was the year Oscar got, er, "hands on." (More like "The Master-bater," eh?)
It's good to know Kristen Stewart's got options, though, now that the "Twilight" franchise has come to a close. Give the gal a hand! (Or, actually, vice versa.)
We've contended once before that "Beasts of the Southern Wild" star Quvenzhané Wallis, who made history as the Academy's youngest-ever Best Actress nominee at just nine, deserves the nickname Cutiezhane, but it looks like The Onion opted for a totally different C word during last night's Oscars telecast.

One of our favorite moments at least year's Oscars wasn't actually at the Oscars — it was the well-timed release of Jimmy Kimmel's send-up of the entire film industry, "Movie: The Movie." Packed with dozens of superstar cameos, the viral clip lampooned everything wrong with Hollywood to hilarious effect.
And now, for this year's Oscars, Kimmel has released the inevitable YouTube follow-up, "Movie: The Movie: 2V."
But can even a parody avoid the lame sequel curse? Get More »
"Hmm ... I must've taken a wrong turn at Al-bu-quer-que."
Most celebrities smile and wave on the red carpet and during awards ceremonies and parties. Others just look confused and befuddled. Here is a collection of pics featuring relatively well-dressed famous (or at least somewhat famous) people looking like they're wondering just what in the heck they're doing at the 85th Annual Academy Awards and related events (we hear Elton John throws a wicked viewing party).
If you're looking for pics of celebs looking at least slightly less bewildered, be sure to check out our more traditional (and super-duper-sized!) Oscars 2013 gallery.
