The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane host the 85th Academy Awards, set for Feb. 24, 2013.
As if the glitz and glamor hasn’t been enough to tip you off, tonight sees the 2012 Academy Awards taking place, giving the movie industry its annual chance to celebrate just how wonderful it is, as well as providing Billy Crystal another chance at reminding said movie industry that he exists. But what about the nominees? Who’ll take Best Director? What movie is the Best Movie of the year? And what about the Best Actor and Actress? Ahead of tonight’s big event, here’s your chance to pick your favorites… Just think of it as SpinOff’s very own ceremony… just with less red carpet and likelihood of awkward cut-aways of the losers pretending to be happy for whoever actually gets the nod.
Captain America: The First Avenger, X-Men: First Class, Thor and 12 more are up the Academy Award for Achievement in Visual Effects.
