ABC announced today that comedian Seth MacFarlane, a two-time Emmy-award winner for his Family Guy series, will host the 85th Academy Awards on February 24. The show's producers accompanied the announcement with an unconventional YouTube video, in which MacFarlane tells his father his exciting news. Check out the clip below!

Joked the comedian, "My thoughts upon hearing the news were, one, I will do my utmost to live up to the high standards set forth by my predecessors; and two, I hope they don't find out I hosted the Charlie Sheen Roast." 

MacFarlane's credits also include Ted, American Dad! and The Cleveland Show. He was nominated for two Grammys in 2011 for his Music Is Better Than Words album and hosted the 38th season premiere of NBC's Saturday Night Live last month.
