Despite getting mixed reviews for being a controversial host, Academy producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan have invited Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane to host the 2014 Oscars. This year's ceremony had 40.3 million viewers tuning in, a two per cent jump from last year's 39.3 million, and ratings were up 11 per cent in the 18-49 demographic, the prime target for advertisers. When a follower asked on Twitter if he would host the Oscars again, MacFarlane responded, "No Way. Lotta fun to have done it, though." The 2014 Oscars will take place in the middle of production of his new western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West and as well, Ted 2 is set to shoot soon, so MacFarlane will be busy. Apparently, producers have asked him to let them know within the next two weeks whether or not he is planning to accept the gig. If he rejects the offer, Justin Timberlake is rumored to fill the spot. ~E. Guevarra

    Why would they ask him if he's already expressed no interest in hosting for a second time? I'd like to see Justin Timberlake host though! He would definitely get ratings up

    Probably just rumours. I don't know why hosts always wants to be controversial. You can be funny and respectable at the same time.

    But I think Seth did a very decent job. If it was too edgy, well look at his humour..duh. Great stuff.

    I can't think of anyone worse than Justin Timberlake as a host. I wouldn't even bother to tune in if they picked him. How about someone with an ounce of class?
