MacFarlane Asked Back? Will Funnyman Return To Oscars

Was Seth MacFarlane asked back to the Oscars?

The Academy Awards has confirmed that producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will return, and several sites have claimed that MacFarlane was asked back to host the event in 2014, after a polarizing but very buzzworthy hosting job in February.

But MacFarlane seemed to be against the idea in the wake of his hosting job, and the Academy Awards issued a statement, saying “Given the fact that we just confirmed Craig Zadan and Neil Meron to produce, we understand how people might speculate in that fashion, but it’s really way too early to have any idea who our host might be in 2014.”

Should MacFarlane be asked back for 2014?
