In a very interesting choice, Seth MacFarlane has been tapped to host the Academy Awards. I think Seth was great on SNL, and he is a funny, very creative guy, but I wonder if this is just a little outside his element. The whole world is watching and if you are not careful, you can really mess with your career. People still laugh about Letterman trying to host the Academy Awards and that was two decades ago. Anne Hathaway and James Franco? Disaster. Here is what Seth had to say about it.
“It's truly an overwhelming privilege to be asked to host the Oscars. My two thoughts upon hearing the news were, 1) I will do my utmost to live up to the high standards set forth by my predecessors and 2) I hope they don't find out I hosted the Charlie Sheen Roast.”
