In another break with tradition, Oscar host Seth MacFarlane will wake up early on Thursday to help announce the Academy Award nominations.
Usually, it’s the job of an actor (last year it was Jennifer Lawrence) and the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, but this year MacFarlane will join the mix, alongside The Amazing Spider-Man and Gangster Squad actress Emma Stone.
MacFarlane has proven to be a particularly engaged host who has gotten involved with the event well in advance of the Feb. 24 telecast, helping — among other things — to recruit college kids to serve as trophy handlers during the show. »
