After the nominees for the 85th Annual Academy Awards were announced this morning (January 10), ABC released its first promo for the big night.
In the clip, host Seth MacFarlane teases Best Actor nominee Daniel Day-Lewis and his well-known method acting skills.
“I’m Seth MacFarlane and I’ll be hosting the Oscars this year. Except guess what, I’m not Seth MacFarlane, I’m Daniel Day-Lewis. I’m just that good,” the “Family Guy” creator jests.
After Seth learned he got the gig back in October, he was tickled pink and said it is “truly an overwhelming privilege” to be asked.
Catch all the fun during the live broadcast on ABC on Sunday, February 24.
