This year Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane will be hosting the Oscars, and this guy no stranger to mocking celebrities! The Oscar nominees of 2013 have already been mocked several times throughout the years. Dating all the way back to the start of the prime-time cartoon, MacFarlane doesn’t let these actors forget a thing.
MacFarlane’s first target, Ben Affleck, appeared as a guest star (if you could even call him that) on Family Guy’s “Fast Times at Buddy Cianci Jr. High” episode in 2005. The punch line being his dwindling acting career, the cartoon-depicted Affleck was accused of doing ‘nothing but eating Breyers and smoking pot for the last six months.’ Unrightfully trying to take credit for writing Good Will Hunting, it is up to the best picture nominee to secure his place on the red carpet this year.
Nominated for Best Actor, the Silver Linings Playbook star, Bradley Cooper was casted on Family Guy in 2010. The Griffins’ talking dog, Brian, bumped into Renee Zellweger, who was dating Cooper at the time the “Brian Writes a Bestseller” episode aired. “We need somebody who’s not that funny and not that good-looking and that you forget about the second you leave the theater,” the canine turned author shrewdly explained, “I think Bradley would be perfect for that!”
Not only the laughing stock of the 2008 Family Guy episode, “McStroke,” Best supporting actress nominee Helen Hunt is also currently defined on urbandictionary.com. Hunt’s last name is now used as slang for ‘turning down an offer with no exception.’ The Sessions supporting actress was ridiculed in 2008 when Peter Griffin turned down her plea of sexual advances in exchange for a lifetime supply of free burgers, claiming ‘Oh man, this is a way better offer than the one I got from Helen Hunt.”
America loves a good punch line, and who’s better than Hollywood’s own for the bud of the joke?Tags: Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper, Brian Griffin, family guy, Helen Hunt, oscars 2013, Peter Griffin, seth macfarlane
