Seth MacFarlane has been chosen to host the 2013 Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles.
First-time Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron made the announcement today. MacFarlane made his directorial debut earlier this year with “Ted,” which took in more than $420 million at the box office. The 38-year-old entertainer also hosted the season opener of “Saturday Night Live” last month.
This will be his first time hosting the Academy Awards.
Nominations for the 85th annual Oscars will be announced on Jan. 10th, nearly a week earlier than normal and ahead of the Golden Globe Awards. The Oscars will be presented Feb. 24th at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles.
Did they make the right choice?? I’m not totally sure just yet…
