Get ready for what could be the funniest Academy Awards show in years!
Ever since Jon Stewart hosted back in 2008, the Oscars have been relatively light on laughs. But with Family Guy creator and Ted star Seth MacFarlane leading the show this year, the biggest upset of the night would be if he managed to bomb. And if his zingers yesterday at the Oscar nomination announcements are any indication, there's little chance that will happen.
Check out some of his funniest lines during the nomination announcements!
On the Best Actress nominees: "Congratulations, you five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein."
On the Adapted Screenplay nominees: "This is adapted screenplay... so the writers basically just copied stuff from Microsoft Word and pasted it into Final Draft."
On why he needed Emma Stone to co-host: "There's nothing creepier than a guy standing by himself in Hollywood at 5 o'clock in the morning."
On Amour's nominations: "I read Amour was coproduced by Austria and Germany. The last time Austria and Germany coproduced something, it was Hitler."
That last line generated a fair amount of flack since, well, 5:00 AM is probably a bit too early for Hitler jokes. Nevertheless, Seth later refused to back down. "Lotta flap over that Adolf joke. Look, Amour was a great film, so how about this: Austria, we'll give you the Oscar if you take back Arnold," he later tweeted.
Are you excited for Seth to host this year?
