It had been announced quite a while ago that the comedic genius behind Family Guy and Ted would be this year’s host for the 85th annual Academy Awards, which will air this Sunday.
Personally, I was ecstatic when I heard this news. MacFarlane is one of my favorite comedians and I knew that he would not disappoint. He never does.
Now, MacFarlane is disagreeing with my opinion. “It’s a really bad match,” MacFarlane told CNN. “I’m the wrong guy to do this.” Why would he say this?
Apparently, he feels that his sense of humor is a little too raunchy for such a “thin-skinned room.” I mean, I can see his point. The Oscars is the most highbrow awards show out there, and although a lot of the nominees are young, a lot of them are also older and more conservative.
All I know is, MacFarlane will not hold back, and personally, I’m okay with that.
