The Oscar Nominations For 2013 – Includes Video Of MacFarlane And Stone’s Announcements

The Oscar nominations were this year announced by Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone, who between them made this the best nominations broadcast ever. In fact, it was better and funnier than most full Oscar shows.

MacFarlane’s involvement makes this the first time that the host of the main show has revealed the noms since before I was born – therefore before he was born too. He also ended up being nominated for an award himself – for writing the lyrics to a song in Ted.

Watch the nominations in this player. They’re no longer live but it should repeat.
