MacFarlane was announced as host of the 85th Academy Awards in October.

Nominations for this year's Golden Globes, and for the Producers Guild of America awards – which are widely regarded as the best predictor of what films will go on to win Oscar nominations – have already been announced.

This year's Academy Awards will take place on February 24, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
