When it was announced that "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane would host the 85th Annual Academy Awards, many were skeptical. Could a man best known for voicing a psychotic cartoon baby have what it takes to play master of ceremonies at Hollywood's biggest night?
Short answer: Nope.
Sure, MacFarlane entered to large applause (though it's worth noting that Robert Downey Jr. didn't appear to clap). The host even received a big laugh when he joked that he was beginning his mission to get the notoriously grumpy Tommy Lee Jones to (Jones immediately laughed, as did everyone else). Good start.
