It’s official: Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has been named the host of the 2013 Academy Awards.

Um, yay?

Gay super-producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced Monday that MacFarlane will host the 85th annual Academy Awards ceremony on February 24.

Is Seth MacFarlane A Good Choice To Host The Oscars?

Meron called MacFarlane, 38, “the most unbelievable, consummate host choice we could think of,” but we don’t know if we buy it. MacFarlane is a good comedy writer, and has a knack for voices, but he’s yet to prove he’s as charismatic as himself as he is doing the voice of Stewie Griffin.

The Oscars have tried numerous times in recent years to appeal to a younger and hipper demographic—we’re still trying to block out the memory of Anne Hathaway and James Franco—but is this the way to go?

Do you like the idea of MacFarlane hosting the Academy Awards? And if not, who would you rather see helming the Gay Super Bowl? Cast your vote in the comments section.
