Seth MacFarlane

I'll NEVER Host

Rest easy, prudes ... and Kardashian family ... 'cause "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane says there's "no way" he'll return to the Academy Awards as a host.

MacFarlane's hosting performance has been the subject of some major media scrutiny ... by people who take the awards WAAYYY too seriously ... yet, ratings for the show were reportedly UP this year.

Still, when Seth was asked on Twitter if he would ever return as the host ... he tweeted back, "No way. Lotta fun to have done it, though."

Oh, and in case you forgot the joke he made about the K-Squad ... here's what he said while talking about Ben Affleck in "Argo":

"First time I saw him with all that dark facial hair, I thought 'My god, the Kardashians have finally made the jump to film.'"

C'mon ... that's funny stuff.

I didn't even make it through the red carpet to watch the Oscars this year..... People need to relax about these award shows though.

I usually like Seth but he sucked at the Oscars. Glad he's not doing it again.

Dear Charlize Theron et al, please take notice. You can't wave your knockers around in front of the camera for pay then try to pull of indignation when you're immortalized about it in song. Quite frankly none of you are that good an actress.

Say what you want about McFarland. The worst part of the show was Michelle Obama. Very tacky. That was the most offensive. She had no reason to announce anything.


How much did that cost us taxpayers? You know all the set up didn't come out of their pockets. It came out of ours.

Seth did a fine job for someone who never hosted the show. He sang, (decent voice), danced, (not easy to do), and told some cool jokes. Nice job. Not great, but what do you expect.

that idiot should be banned from tv. I am sick of his anti catholic, anti christian , pro gay crap. People call call for alec baldwin to fired for a racial slur but this bast-rd can say anything about catholics and its ok. What a idiot liberal.

People in hollywood need to get over themselves and lighten up for god sake. Seth did a fantastic job! If you can do better, then I suggest you step up to the plate. Really!, with all the problems in the world thats all you have to bitch about..get real!

Ricky Gervais is very funny. Also keep in mind with the british accent it's just sounds so much more proper even though it's just as sarcastic.
