When we announced that Seth MacFarlane would be hosting the 85th Annual Academy Awards back in October, we were cautiously optimistic that he had plans to do something wildly inappropriate on such a big stage.

If you missed them early this morning, check out the list of nominations for this year’s Oscars. The 85th Annual Academy Awards will be held February 24.
