Seth MacFarlane To Host the Oscars

Seth MacFarlane, creator of Ted, Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show will be the emcee of the 85th annual Oscars on Feb. 24th, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today.

“It’s truly an overwhelming privilege to be asked to host the Oscars,”  MacFarlane 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 Oscar ceremony will take place at the Dolby Theatre in the Hollywood & Highland complex, with Don Mischer, who co-produced last year, directing the telecast and Craig Zadan and Neil Meron producing.
