Seth MacFarlane: Oscars 2013 Host!

Seth MacFarlane is set to host the 2013 Academy Awards!

“It’s truly an overwhelming privilege to be asked to host the Oscars,” the 38-year-old Family Guy creator said in a statement. “My thoughts upon hearing the news were, one, I will do my utmost to live up to the high standards set forth by my predecessors; and two, I hope they don’t find out I hosted the Charlie Sheen roast.”

The 2013 Oscars will be presented on Sunday, February 24, 2013 at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center.

UGH. This guy is really, really not funny. I keep wishing they’d recruit Stephen Colbert for this. Or get Hugh Jackman to come back. He was pretty fabulous.

# 4

I actually think he’s really cute and think he will do a great job!

# 5

Awesome! I’ll be sure to tune in. However, I hope producers keep their fingers on the ‘censor’ button because Seth MacFarlane doesn’t have any limits. EVERYTHING is fair game. P.S. I hope he brings Mila Kunis with him. ;-P

That random clip of Seth, his dad and the bathing suits is freakin’ HILARIOUS! LOL! Can’t wait to see what else he comes up with during the Oscars. Seth’s sense of humor is AW3SOME!

ps your dad is adorable

This will be interesting, will definitely tune in to watch it.

“Fine, fine, thank you. Thank you for these. Wow. Three new bathing suits. Or KINDA new. I’ll issue a press release…”. LMAO!

Looks like I won’t be watching the Oscar’s this year.

oh huh he pronounces it Muc-Far-Lun. I though *** was Muc-Far-Lane, but he says like how they’d say it in Ireland. Coolies.

well they could put a potato as host and i’d still watch it but really who is that

basically, we can all expect sexist/racist/misogynistic/insert-prejudice-here jokes all night. good job, Academy.

well, honestly I have no idea how his performance will be like. I’m not a fan of family guy, but I really like american dad. gotta say i’m curious about this :P

yay congrats seth

He’s a creative writer; however, Seth is too controversial, therefore he’s not a great pick for hosting the Oscars. Bigotry is the bulk of his comedic skits, which isn’t always funny. I’d choose Matt Groening over Seth any day.

I think Matt Groening did this already…
