Seth MacFarlane

Rejects Porn Awards,

I Can't Find an Opening

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Why don't they get Corey Feldman to host? Didn't he used to hang out with Ginger Lynn in the 80's? He would be great, he could do a Michael Jackson dance routine to open the show, then he could do some slapstick comedy with obese hasbeen porn star Ron Jeremy. AVN should get Feldman's agent on the line right now! does Corey Feldman still have an agent?

The AVNs are HOMOPHOBIC. They give awards to every porn in the business except gay porn. Douche Bags!

Urm slight fact typo, there's not been a XXX, or XX, rated film or standard since around 1995 or bit after. Whereas after that there have been adult films (the change was made to give the industry more credit). I always thought there was XXX and such till about 6 years ago when a friend corrected me about it. Time to move out of the 20th century TMZ
