Sunday's 85th Annual Oscar Award celebration had high expectations to meet. Newcomer host, Seth MacFarlane, was up to the task, singing, joking and making out with Sally Field. As the creator of "Family Guy" and "Ted", it is well known that Seth likes to make fun of, well, everything, and he usually gets the laugh.

Yet last night there was one joke, aimed at Hispanic actors, that got some mixed reactions. When introducing Mexican actress Salma Hayek, Seth said: "Well we have finally reached the point in the ceremony where either Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz or Salma Hayek comes on stage and we have no idea what they're saying but we don't care because they're so attractive."

We tweeted out asking what people had thought of Seth's joke and got some very mixed reactions. Everything from hilarious, to extremely racist.
