Seth MacFarlane Is Hosting the Oscars Because, Seriously F**k That Guy

The Academy has confirmed:

"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," said Zadan and Meron. "He will be the consummate host, and we are so happy to be working with him."

He does jibe very well with the Oscars attempts to make a show "entertaining and fresh," according to the Academy's definitions of "entertaining and fresh."

So, to sum: Seth MacFarlane has 3,879 animated sitcoms on Fox, wrote and directed a movie this summer that made $434 million worldwide, is dating Khaleesi from "Game of Thrones," and now he's hosting the Oscars. And all he has to do is make lame stabs at offending people using funny voices and look like a frat boy date rapist.

I think I may implement a new business plan.

MacFarlane said it best:
