First Oscar Poster Features Host Seth MacFarlane

Seth MacFarlane might best be known for his voice on The Family Guy, but his face is about to get a whole lot more familiar. AMPAS has unveiled their first poster for the 85th Annual Academy Awards, and it is clear they are really pushing their leading man. Is this another attempt to draw in younger viewers? The Oscars will take place on Sunday, February 24th. See the poster after the jump.

Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.

They’re making to big a deal of Seth MacFarlane hosting. He’s just a gimmick all he does is voices and stupid songs. Like Billy Crystal this guy always does the same thing. He’s going to go through every Family guy voice and sing some dumb ass songs. He’s no Ricky Gervais. They should ask Conan O’Brien to host.
