As if Seth MacFarlane’s stock couldn’t get any higher, Deadline has just broken the news that the Family Guy creator will host the upcoming Oscars on ABC.

After the success of Ted, and his recent hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, it appears as if the Academy feels that he’s ready to take that next step in show biz.

We’ll see how he does when the 85th Annual Academy Awards airs on February 24, 2013.
