'Family Guy' Creator Is Next Oscars Host

'Family Guy' Creator Is Next Oscars Host, Seth MacFarlane will oversee the festivities at next year's star-studded Academy Awards. Seth MacFarlane is hosting the 85th Academy Awards: The pros and cons, Seth MacFarlane, perhaps most famous as the creator of the animated show "Family Guy," will be hosting the Academy Awards show early next year, the Academy announced on Monday.

This comes off the heels of the success of his foray onto the big screen with the comedy "Ted," about a foul-mouthed, talking teddy bear -- also starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis. The film, which cost $50 million to make, has brought in $217.8 million in the U.S. and $420 million total (worldwide).

MacFarlane provides the voice of many of his non-human characters including Ted, Peter Griffin ("Family Guy") and Stan Smith ("American Dad"), and many more. He got his start in animation working for Hanna-Barbera and then became an animator and writer at the Cartoon Network, working on "Dexter's Laboratory," "Cow and Chicken," "I Am Weasel," and "Johnny Bravo."
