10. SETH MACFARLANE: HOST AND NOMINEE
The Best Original Song category was loaded this year, with mainstream artists like Katy Perry ("Wide Awake"), Taylor Swift ("Safe & Sound") and Adele ("Skyfall") all looking to add an Oscar nod to their respective resumes. Adele did indeed score a nomination for her James Bond theme, but 2013 Oscars host Seth MacFarlane also had his name called, as his "Ted" track "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" beat out Perry and Swift's contributions to "Katy Perry: Part of Me" and "The Hunger Games," respectively. Now, the "Family Guy" mastermind has a chance to smirk his way up to the podium in between his hosting duties.
