Sing me a bawdy song, make me merry (

I didn't watch the Oscars - my parents watched it and I just overheard some bits of the first half-hour or so while I was washing the dishes - but I'm now reading some articles on the genderfail, and apparently ABC was concerned that their Oscar-watching audience was getting so female-dominated and they were losing the coveted young white male demographic, so they way overcompensated in the opposite direction, what with the Seth McFarlane and the boob song and getting Shatner to play Captain Kirk (I had a moment of vicarious nerd-shame when I overheard that part, I mean seriously, y'all are dragging that guy out again after how many decades?)
And did you hear about the anonymous Oscar voter who admitted that s/he voted against Wallis because s/he couldn't pronounce her name? What century are we living in again?!?
