‘85th Annual Academy Awards’ Promos with Host Seth MacFarlane

Earlier today, Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone announced the nominations for the 85th Annual Academy Awards. The Ted director injected a surprising dose of humor to the usually-bland occasion. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has unveiled six new promo videos for the awards ceremony, which shows off the host's unique brand of levity. Watch has he checks his Twitter feed, tries to impersonate Daniel Day-Lewis from Lincoln, and even has a drink while preparing for the big event, airing Sunday, February 24 on ABC. We also have the full video of Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone announcing The Academy Awards nominations, in case you missed it this morning.
