Gloria Allred: Seth MacFarlane is a boob; actresses name-checked plainly not amused by MacFarlane/Gay Men's Chorus number, We saw your boobs

Oscars-related: Argo pushback

Update: Apparently at least one of the cuts purported to be a live view of the audience at the Dolby Theater was prerecorded insert.

Yesterday the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences decided that staging a number dedicated to sexually harassing some of its best actresses wasn't enough; flashing their appalled and cringing discomfort to hundreds of millions of people around the world was apparently also necessary. 

Said Allred to Daily Beast's Lloyd Grove:
“I’m sure that Seth MacFarlane was trying to be edgy,” Allred told me at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where the Night of 100 Stars Oscars watch party was under way. “It’s one thing to be topless and to have that in the context of the film, for a purpose in a particular scene for a particular reason. It’s another to take it out of context and just focus on women’s breasts.”
