Video: Seth MacFarlane Asks People to Tweet About Him Hosting the Oscars


Another first promo for the 85th Academy Awards shows the 'Ted' helmer poking fun at Best Actor nominee Daniel Day-Lewis.

Shortly after announcing the nominees for the 85th Academy Awards, Seth MacFarlane followed it up by releasing his very first official promo as the host of the upcoming Oscars. "Hi I'm Seth MacFarlane and I'll be your host this year for the Oscars. So tweet about it now!" so he introduces himself enthusiastically before checking his Twitter only to find someone calling him "douche."

There's another version of the promo that sees the "Family Guy" creator poking fun at "Lincoln" star Daniel Day-Lewis, who's just been nominated for Best Actor. He jokes, "I'm Seth MacFarlane and I'll be hosting the Oscars this year. Except guess what, I'm not Seth MacFarlane, I'm Daniel Day-Lewis. I'm just that good."

MacFarlane, joined by Emma Stone, has just announced the nominees for this year's Oscars, in which "Lincoln" dominated the list with 12 nods in total. He became the first Oscar host since Charlton Heston in 1972 to take part on Oscar nominations morning.

The Academy President Hawk Koch once explained why he picked the "Ted" helmer as the host. He said, "Seth is unbelievably talented. We couldn't be happier with the creative team we assembled... with Craig, Neil and now Seth, we're off to a great start!"

The 2013 Academy Awards is set to take place on February 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood & Highland Center. It will be broadcast live on the ABC Television Network in more than 225 countries.
