OSCARS NAME SETH MacFARLANE AS HOST
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Seth MacFarlane joins Chris Rock, Billy Crystal and David Letterman on the list of Oscar ceremony hosts. The "Family Guy" creator says being invited to host the 2013 Academy Awards is "the greatest call" he could have gotten in show business. The show is being produced by two first-timers: Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. They say they have long admired MacFarlane's talent.
The 85th annual Academy Awards will be presented February 24 in Hollywood. ------Online:
