Seth MacFarlane

Rejects Porn Awards,

I Can't Find an Opening

EXCLUSIVE

1005_seth_macfarlane_avn_tmz_article
Seth MacFarlane is officially OUT as the host of Hollywood's most prestigious award show ... the AVNs ... which means he will no longer get the chance to present the 2013 award for "Penis of the Year."

The Adult Video News awards -- kinda like the Academy Awards of XXX -- had reached out to MacFarlane, hoping he would front the 2013 award show ... since he's been on a hosting tear lately, with 2 Comedy Central Roasts under his belt and an upcoming gig at the Oscars.

In a letter to Seth's agents, the AVN people called him the "ideal host" ... and hoped he would follow in the footsteps of past hosts like Lisa Lampanelli.

But a rep for MacFarlane tells TMZ, the "Family Guy" honcho simply won't be able to rise to the occasion 'cause he's "a little busy right now."

Instead, the 2013 AVNs will be hosted by porn stars Jesse Jane and Asa Akira ... who has previously won AVNs for Best Anal, Best 3-Way and Best DP.

It's very sad that someone as talented as him uses his talents to be a sickened individual. He's an absolute hypocrite when anyone expresses their disgust towards him; he dishes it out, but he sure can't take it.

I don't watch his shows and now I won't be watching the Oscars this year either.

Can someone call Billy Crystal back?! At least someone that's funny!

Good idea to pull out, so to speak, from a disease-ridden-industry's award show.

I love it when a teary-eyed AVN winner thanks everyone in her life for making it possible to win best deep penetration. Um, thanks Dad?

"I Can't Find an Opening".
I am pretty sure that is what he also said to his wife the first time they had anal. "Oops, sorry honey, I missed."

He had a chance to learn the in's and out's of the porn business, he blew it now. Hopefully he can get himself up for the next award show.

I love Seth MacFarlane. He is a great choice for the Oscars. With his love for the Sinatra type of entertainment, I think he will bring a lot of the classic hosting style. But he will also remain edgy to keep the show interesting.


As for the porn awards, I don't know anything about that, so I don't really have a comment other then if Seth had accepted he probibly would have lost his Oscar hosting gig.
