Seth MacFarlane Asked to Host Oscars Again (Exclusive)

Seth MacFarlane has been asked to return as the host for the 2014 Academy Awards, sources exclusively reveal to

The 39-year-old Family Guy creator hosted this year’s ceremony to acclaim from many critics, but also caused controversy with some of the jokes he made throughout the show. Despite the controversy, the ratings for the 2013 Oscars ceremony were up significantly over the year before with 40.3 million viewers tuning in.

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who hired Seth for this year’s show, will be returning to helm next year’s show as well.

“After defending his performance, the producers reached out to Seth and invited him back to host the show again,” sources close to the comedian tell exclusively. “He’s not sure if he’s going to do it, but he has to decide within the next couple of weeks.”

Seth previously tweeted that he would not host the Oscars if he were asked to do it again. We can’t wait to find out if he accepts the gig!

DO YOU THINK Seth MacFarlane should return to host the Oscars?

# 1

hes okay, but its like their running out of people to host

# 2

NOOOOOO Please he was horrible along with his musicals, I rather watch Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as hosts!

# 3

The people who were complaining were the celebs and media. Most of the feedback I saw from ordinary viewers thought he was hilarious. Even my 60 year old conservative, still get’s mad if I saw “shut up”, mother thought he was wonderful. Her afterwards, “Wait, these Hollywood girls ge millions to take off their clothes on camera, but I’m supposed to be offended for them when someone points it out? Can’t have it both ways girls.”

Nice try, April Fools was over two weeks ago.

# 5

he sucked big time,,,he is low class have him host something else

# 6

He is low.
Tina and Amy would be a WAAAY better option.

# 7

Yes, he was great

# 8

I thought he was funny but he shouldn’t do it again….I say Tina and Amy

# 9

Why don’t they get someone like Robert Downey Jr?

what Alexander answered I’m shocked that a mother can get paid $4989 in 4 weeks on the COMputer. have you read this webpage and go to home tab for more detail—>>>


He wasn’t bad, but he wasn’t great either. Comedians are never good hosts, the usually go to far. Maybe they could get a famous celebrity and write funny things for him to do/say. Like they did with Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman. But I guess that’s why the get comedians, so they can write their own bits lol.

The ratings were up of course, he was still dating Khaleesi Emilia Clarke. After Tina-Amy in Golden Globes I thought they were by far the best Awards host. Very, very hilarious.


I KNEW IT!!!!!
There are of Asians at my collage and most of them do segregate from anyone who isn’t Asian, and a lot of them are born hear, and when their around non Asians they do have this weird blank expressionless look on their faces! I always thought that it was soooo weird!!!!

I have seen quite a few of them give me dirty and funny looks when I think things that would make people feel that way, and it’s only Asians who have done that! Never any non Asians! I have been thinking that it has to be a coincidence, until I saw your comment! It all makes perfect sense now!!!
I’m posting on my wall and to everyone on Facebook!!

Kora – grow up and stop talking to yourself.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! He was terrible it was so embarrassing. Surley they can come up with someone else.

Get Neil Patrick Harris to host the Oscars

Woa that is freaky !!

Don’t mind Seth at all, not the worst host.

Of course they would ask him back. No matter what critics said – he was funny. When I was watching show I laughed. And Oscar hosts are never funny. They are always telling some silly unfunny jokes that we supposed to laugh at.

He shouldn’t do it again,, been there, done it and likely will be crucified worse if he does it again, more expectations than ever.

And why they need 10 months to pick a host is beyond me, it’s not like the host needs to be involved until a couple months before and they have writers that help, so why do they have to choose someone so far from the date.

Please, no more. Tina and Amy would be perfect!
