Family Guy creator and all-around really talented guy, Seth MacFarlane has been officially confirmed to host the Oscars on February 24th. “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 Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

MacFarlane has enjoyed an incredible 2012. His directorial debut, “Ted,” earned $434 million worldwide, making it one of the highest grossing R-rated comedies ever. MacFarlane also hosted the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” and appeared on the 2012 Emmy Awards.

“It’s truly an overwhelming privilege to be asked to host the Oscars,” said MacFarlane in a statement. “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.”

And hopefully, he finds the mic this time.
