Seth MacFarlane Confirms He Won’t Be Hosting the Oscars Again

Seth MacFarlane will not be returning to host the Oscars, at least not next year.  While the Family Guy creator earned mixed reviews for his hosting duties earlier this year, producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron nevertheless reached out to MacFarlane to see if he’d want to come back and host again in 2014.  While the very busy MacFarlane seems like he was up to the task, scheduling issues have forced him to decline via a statement on his Twitter:

“Traumatized critics exhale: I’m unable to do the Oscars again. Tried to make it work schedule-wise, but I need sleep. However, I highly recommend the job, as Zadan and Meron are two of the most talented producers in the business. My suggestion for host is Joaquin Phoenix.”

MacFarlane is currently filming and starring in his second feature directorial effort, A Million Ways to Die in the West, and he’s expected to shoot the Ted sequel later this year, which would account for the scheduling difficulties.  With MacFarlane now out, who do you think should be at the helm of next year’s Oscars? My vote is for Neil Patrick Harris or Hugh Jackman.

    Good news. Once he recovers from his adolescent boob fetish and overall misogynistic jeering, he might be worth paying attention to.

      “adolescent boob fetish”

      Yeah, because men being attracted to boobs is really rare. You’re a fucking retard if you think that was misogynistic. Unfunny maybe, but not misogynistic.

      Yeah! Cuz boob jokes and misogyny aren’t what made his entire career! Oh wait… that’s right, this is the guy that is famous for making dirty cartoons. We should have expected so much more. You must be a stupid woman with a shitty rack.

        I can’t usually be bothered arguing with complete idiotfuckturds like you, but your right about one thing, I do have a “shitty rack”, and even if I was a woman I wouldn’t stoop to getting a boob job just so to curb your worthless disrespect.
