'Family Guy' Creator Seth MacFarlane Set to Host 85th Oscars

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has been selected by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences to host the 85th Oscar Awards ceremony on February 24.

MacFarlane made his feature film directorial debut this summer with the comedy Ted, which he also produced, wrote and voiced the title character. Ted scored over $430 million worldwide and a sequel is currently in the works. He also created animated television shows Family Guy, The Cleveland Show and American Dad. He has earned 13 Emmy nominations and two wins for his work on Family Guy.

"It's truly an overwhelming privilege to be asked to host the Oscars," said MacFarlane. "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."

MacFarlane continues the recent revolving door tradition of younger skewing Oscar hosts. With the exception of last year, which saw Billy Crystal come to the rescue when Eddie Murphy and producer Brett Ratner stepped down, the ceremony has featured Hugh Jackman, Ellen DeGeneres, the unforgettable duo of Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin and the more forgettable duo of James Franco and Anne Hathaway.

The Academy Awards will air live from the Dolby Theater at Hollywood and Highland Center on February 24 on ABC. If you didn't see Ted or haven't seen any of MacFarlane's TV shows, the Academy released this promo video featuring Seth with his dad, giving us a taste of what kind of humor we should expect.

Now it's time for you to sound off. Are you happy to see MacFarlane get the Oscar hosting nod or were you hoping for someone else?
