Seth MacFarlaneSeth MacFarlane will host the 2013 Oscars. The Family Guy creator has been chosen to present the 85th Academy Awards and bring his fresh brand of comedy to the prestigious ceremony on February 24 next year.

"It's truly an overwhelming privilege to be asked to host the Oscars. 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," Seth said in a statement.

Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron commented, "We are thrilled to have Seth MacFarlane host the Oscars. His performing skills blend perfectly with our ideas for making the show entertaining and fresh. He will be the consummate host, and we are so happy to be working with him."

The Ted director has been nominated for 13 Emmys and two Grammys over the course of his career and is best known for comedy cartoon series Family Guy, Cleaveland and American Dad.
