I Wonder If Talking Animals Will Be Involved: Seth MacFarlane To Host Oscars

Posted By on Mon, Oct 1, 2012 at 1:26 PM

In a move that makes a strange amount of sense, Family Guy creator, Ted film star and writer of dick jokes fine comedy Seth MacFarlane will host the upcoming 83rd Annual Academy Awards.

MacFarlane has shown that he does have presence on TV — he MC'd Comedy Central's Roast of Charlie Sheen last year, and pulled off hosting duties during Saturday Night Live's season opener a few weeks ago. Plus, it doesn't hurt that the man has shown himself capable of carrying a tune (see any and all Family Guy musical episodes), and is actually, y'know, funny, even if his TV shows tend to come off as a bit one-note.

I mean, I'm relatively certain that this will be a success — even if he can't work as blue as he would tend to given free rein, MacFarlane is a smart guy and a hell of an entertainer. The only catch would come if he happens to skewer some of Hollywood's A-Listers a bit too much — but, given the circumstances, isn't that what we want to see anyway?
