“Family Guy” brainchild Seth MacFarlane has just been named the host of the 85th annual Academy Awards!
Finally the Academy has realized how perfect Seth MacFarlane has been all along and as such, Seth will be gracing our screens on Sunday, February 24, 2013.
The Academy just released a statement citing it was Seth’s “performing skills” that made him a perfect choice for the hosting gig.
“He blends perfectly with out ideas for making the show entertainment and fresh,” says the statement for the Academy.
Here’s what Seth has to say about his new job, “It’s truly an overwhelming privilege to be asked to host the Oscars,” says Seth, “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.”
For example: When Seth hosted the Charlie Sheen roast, he opened the show with Charlie’s obituary.
So that’s what we’re working with and we absolutely cannot wait! If Seth brings his charm, wit, and dashing ability to rock a white tux, this could potentially be the best Oscars ever!
