Seth MacFarlane has decided not to host the Oscars again ... again.
Last month, 2014 Academy Awards producing duo Craig Zadan and Neil Meron all but begged the "Family Guy" funnyman to come back for another turn on the Oscars stage after he'd already said "no way" to the idea before — it was on Twitter, but it was still a definite answer — and while he has admitted to at least considering a second chance at the job of mocking celebutantes as they collect Hollywood's most elite prizes, it's just not going to happen.

While "Family Guy" funny guy Seth MacFarlane literally said "no way" when asked whether he would return to host the Academy Awards again, he might just get the chance to change his mind all "No way! Way!" "Wayne's World" style here soon.
As detailed by Cinema Blend, yesterday producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron were confirmed to return for the 2014 Oscars and are rumored to have asked MacFarlane to give the show another go. Get More »
Receiving an invitation to the Oscars is great. Receiving an invitation to the MTV Movie Awards is even better (that's right, even better). Receiving an invitation to both? Why, you've just hit your zenith as an actor. You've covered all bases. The old white people at the Academy think you're important, and the MTV generation thinks you're rad. Yes, rad.
But which of the two prestigious events did the following thespians enjoy more, by our perception?

Seth MacFarlane is currently experiencing some rather serious backlash for the ups and downs of his turn as host of this year's Academy Awards, so it's hardly a surprise there's "no way" he'll take that job again. And while it's been less than a week since the Oscars, people are already starting to look forward to next year's big show with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler among the most wanted hosts for 2014, natch.
Unfortunately, that will not happen. Get More »
We've contended once before that "Beasts of the Southern Wild" star Quvenzhané Wallis, who made history as the Academy's youngest-ever Best Actress nominee at just nine, deserves the nickname Cutiezhane, but it looks like The Onion opted for a totally different C word during last night's Oscars telecast.

"Hmm ... I must've taken a wrong turn at Al-bu-quer-que."
Most celebrities smile and wave on the red carpet and during awards ceremonies and parties. Others just look confused and befuddled. Here is a collection of pics featuring relatively well-dressed famous (or at least somewhat famous) people looking like they're wondering just what in the heck they're doing at the 85th Annual Academy Awards and related events (we hear Elton John throws a wicked viewing party).
If you're looking for pics of celebs looking at least slightly less bewildered, be sure to check out our more traditional (and super-duper-sized!) Oscars 2013 gallery.
That's all she wrote, folks: The 2013 awards season has officially drawn to a close with the curtain drop on last night's Oscars ceremony, but not before Hollywood's brightest stars got a few good lines in.
From the smiliest Best Director acceptance speech ever to the gayest possible ceremony and everything in between, here are the seven most memorable quotes (or in one case, silence) from the 2013 Oscars.
And with all the hype, the endless amounts of expert prognostications and snarky articles on movie websites, the Oscars are over in only three-and-a-half short hours. Well, not short, exactly.
Certainly longer than some other things with lots of hype (BOOM SEX JOKE) - but still, here we are.
The awards have been handed out, and it's time to review what we all just watched. Get More »
The 85th annual Academy Awards are being held this evening and "Argo" won Best Picture. The award was accepted by producers Grant Heslov, George Clooney and Ben Affleck, who was famously snubbed in the Best Director category.
Heslov was anything but subtle in pointing out the oversight, making a special point to thank Affleck for being a "great director" before turning over the mic.
"I want to thank my wife, who I don't normally associate with Iran," Affleck said in a charming acceptance speech, also thanking everyone up to and including the entire nation of Canada.
Ang Lee, for what it's worth, won Best Director for "Life of Pi." It was the fourth win for the film on the evening, follwing Oscars for Best Visual Effects, Best Cinematography and Best Original Score. Get More »
