Wow. It looks like Deadline just broke the news that Seth MacFarlane will be hosting the 2013 Academy Awards. Say what you want about MacFarlane and Family Guy, but this is a huge move on the Academy's part. To go from Billy Crystal and his safe performances to MacFarlane? Applause, Academy, applause.
The 85th Academy Awards will air on ABC on Feb. 24, 2013. Check out the OscarIndex to see who's currently in the running.
