Angelina Jolie scared up $69.4 million over the weekend for Disney’s “Maleficent,” trouncing the other new wide-release, Seth MacFarlane’s comic Western “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” The Universal comedy opened with $16.8 million.
Astronomers and scientists joined Seth MacFarlane at the Library of Congress for the opening of a new collection of Carl Sagan’s papers.
There’s no question that Seth MacFarlane was successful as this year’s host of The Oscars. The ratings support that claim. However, as the Academy leans towards a younger audience, it has become apparent the awards show’s older viewers may not have the tolerance for an edgy host like Seth.
