To say that Seth MacFarlane's stint as Oscars host polarised opinion would be a little like saying that it's a bit nippy in space. As statements of the bleeding obvious go it's right up there with suggesting that Joaquin Phoenix is a leftfield pick to succeed him. Well, guess who MacFarlane is tipping to succeed him?
MacFarlane has tweeted that he definitely won't be returning to the Dolby Theater as host next year, slipping in a sly dig at the critics - that's pretty much all of them - who panned his efforts in March.
With a packed looking schedule, including Ted 2 and comedy Western A Million Ways To Die In The West, MacFarlane has his plate full for the foreseeable. His pick for 2014 host? Yup, Commodus himself, Joaquin Phoenix. Busy little bees ahoy.
