Seth MacFarlane Turns Down Adult Awards
Seth MacFarlane is perhaps one of the greatest entertainers of our generation. Not only is he the creator of Family Guy, American Dad! and the Cleveland Show he is also an actor, voice actor, animator, screenwriter, comedian, producer, director, and singer. If that’s not enough to convince you of his awesomeness, then there is this. He’s also a hunk.
Apologies to my husband who I know will take offence to that last sentence. I love Family Guy, but I really never got into American Dad! and honestly I can’t stand The Cleveland Show. This has in no way swayed my opinion on MacFarlane’s total awesomeness. I have read that he will be the next host of the Oscars; I’m watching it just for him because he is going to be hilarious.
The latest news on Seth MacFarlane from TMZ.com is that he was asked to host AVNs (The Adult Video News Awards) kind of like the Academy Awards but for XXX movies. Unfortunately for the AVNs, MacFarlane is way to busy and can’t preside over the prestigious presentation (try to say that 3 times real fast)of the 2013 award for “Penis of the Year.” I have never in my life heard of the AVNs, but I would totally have watched it, it’s a shame really because Seth MacFarlane would have been a perfect fit (no pun intended).
This would have been just one of the many hosting and speaking gigs in his career, including two Comedy Central Roasts. He has given talks to numbers collages and universities over the years in his own voice and using the voices of his Family Guy characters he created as well. That must have been really cool to see and hear him in person not to mention inspiring. If it seams like I’m gushing that’s because I totally am! I believe I already mentioned that I think this guy is totally awesome.

Supper talented in several ways, is this all one needs to be super awesome you ask? No, you must also give of you time and money to worthy causes and that is prissily what MacFarlane does. He is passionate about his support for gay rights, a cause he came to support after a family member wondered out loud if their gay cousin’s homosexuality could be cured.
The statement angered Seth MacFarlane so deeply that he has made it one of his missions to bring equality to same sex marriages. In an interview for the Advocate, he recounts the incident and said that such a statement “was f@#king horrifying to hear from somebody that you love”. I can’t agree more. So now you know what a totally awesome guy Seth MacFarlane is and why he could have been great for the AVN awards. Ok, I am done geeking out.
