Billy Crystal to MacFarlane:

Don't Sweat Oscar Haters ...

EVERYONE Gets Ripped

Billy Crystal doesn't feel the LEAST BIT bad for Seth MacFarlane for all of the crap he took for his performance as Oscars host this year ... telling TMZ dealing with haters is simply part of the gig.

Crystal was leaving a birthday dinner at Spago this weekend (he'll be 65 on Thursday) ... when we asked if he thought the critics were being too hard on the "Family Guy" creator for all of the boob, race, and Kardashian jokes he made at the Oscars (some of which were hilarious BTW).

But Crystal -- considered the GREATEST awards show host of all-time -- shrugged it off like it was no big deal ... telling us, "Everyone gets a hard time who does a show."

Billy didn't just make a good point -- he also gave us a pretty solid up-top high five.

Happy birthday.

Uh ... I think they'd have more people willing to host it if they CUT IT DOWN to 2 hours max. It's too long and too filled with superfluous BS just so they can charge top dollar for advertising during the broadcast. That's what people don't like about it and that's why a lot of people don't watch it or DVR it so they can fast forward through all of the crap. It's just a televised mutual circle jerk for H'wood. No thank you!

BILLY CRYSTAL'S hosted the Oscars some years
Singing, dancing and humor with tears,
MacFARLANE spikes terror in the hearts of some
Jerks with money want SETH to go mum.

The Oscars are not a Roast. These two guys can't seem to understand that.

SETH is GREAT if seth if just the cartoonist..ake NOT the movies AKE not the person.Seths market and target viewers DON~T want to see HIM or his movies or his personal personas ONLY HIS FN CARTOONS which are great get back to your place and get back your core viewers before you loose your viewership and your cartoon ratings.Everyone thinks they can crossover in the markets and some can but a cartoonist whom thinks and loves his own stewie isn`t going to sell well as you are over useing over marketing and mixing up your viewerships whom DON~T lov you persay they love your CARTOONs

I love Billy Crystal as the host but the TRUE greatest host of all time was Bob Hope (I know ... you're all too young to have seen him).
