Strength. Character. Child Abuse. These are all words that can describe the journey of a woman. Her strength defines her inner beauty. Her character gives testimony to her attributes and child abuse, could be the badge of survival that she wears underneath it all.
For some avid readers of "Color Me Jazzmyne" or "My Father's Colors," those words could also describe the main character, Naya Monà. Better known as, Jazzmyne the Jazz Singer.
However, for Seth MacFarlane, those words could also be the debut for Oscar night Jokes.
It's interesting that the spectrum between acceptance and criticism for the hosts Oscar night performance ranges from highly favored to utter disdain. Some media streams show that viewers found his humor refreshing and a new take on what many once viewed as an "non-entertaining" evening. Others found his humor to be "racist" and filled with nothing more than "lady diminishing wisecracks."
Social networking sites saw high levels of increased activity. Some to the tune of over 4million Oscar night related themes.
Whether you were for, against or just didn't care about MacFarlane's performance, the Academy released a statement to Yahoo Movies that: "If the Oscars are about anything, they're about creative freedom. We think the show's producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, and host Seth MacFarlane did a great job and we hope our worldwide audience found the show entertaining."
Writing is a form of creative freedom. It is possible then, that Mr. Seth MacFarlane would like them after all.
