LOS ANGELES--"Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane will host the 2013 Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles.
First-time Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron made the announcement Monday.
MacFarlane made his film directorial debut earlier this year with "Ted," which took in more than US$420 million at the box office.
This is the 38-year-old entertainer's first time hosting the Academy Awards.
Nominations for the 85th annual Oscars will be announced on Jan. 10 — nearly a week earlier than traditionally revealed and coming ahead of the Golden Globe Awards.
