For the first time since 1972, the host of the Oscars telecast will take part in announcing the nominations.
FAMILY GUY creator and comedian Seth MacFarlane will join actress Emma Stone on 10 January in unveiling the nominees for the 85th Academy Awards at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.
For those curious enough for an early taste of MacFarlane’s hosting skills, the announcement will provide a first glimpse of his official duties when the full list of nominees become available as of 5:30 a.m. (PST).
The Academy Awards, which annually honours outstanding film achievements, will be aired on Sunday, 24 February, 2013, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center. The ceremony will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.
