Seth MacFarlane is not hosting the 86th Annual Academy Awards We reported in April that producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron had approached Seth MacFarlane about hosting next year's awards ceremony, but it wasn't known whether or not he would agree to hosting The Academy Awards again.

Seth MacFarlane is currently shooting his Western A Million Ways to Die in the West, with sequel to his hit comedy Ted expected to begin production later this year. Since both movies will likely be in post-production by the time the Oscars roll around next year, not to mention his duties as a voice artist, writer, and producer on Family Guy and American Dad, it's no surprise that Seth MacFarlane'schedule does not allow him to host the Oscars one more time.
