Seth MacFarlane. Go ahead - say the name again...("Seth MacFarlane")...and again and again...For come Monday morning, he will either be the most talked about person in the country, or the most forgotten one. Hosting the Oscars can be brutal or glorious - but it is not for the faint-hearted. So, let's take a look at this intriguing fellow, shall we? Here's my profile in tomorrow's Newsday. Love him or hate him, there's real talent here - but we're all about to find out if there's real talent for this hosting gig...

You probably know him from the voice, or voices. One comes from a pinched, sour, insolent, diabolical baby who says blisteringly rude (more likely crude) things on the popular Fox animated series "Family Guy."

Or maybe you know him as the voice of Ted in the movie "Ted," about the stuffed bear who is best buddies with John (Mark Wahlberg), and has an abiding taste for booze, hookers and the occasional line of coke.

Or you might even know him as the voice from "Music Is Better," a 2011 album of standards, which he sings, sounding like a mix of d!ck Haymes and Frank Sinatra.

There have been Oscars hosts from the fake news world (Jon Stewart), from the stand-up world (Chris Rock), even the down-under world (Hugh Jackman). But there has never been a host from the world of Seth MacFarlane.

A natural-born provocateur, he's an intriguing choice to host Sunday night's Academy Awards telecast, possibly a dangerous one, who will sing and dance and maybe even give this bespoke crowd a kick in their collective shins.

He ominously told TV writers recently that "in terms of tone, I would say you could start with "Family Guy." You could watch "Ted." Those make an attempt to walk a line between the classic and the edgy, and that's the line that we're trying to walk here. We want it to feel like an old-style Oscars, but content-wise, we want it to also feel relevant. We want it to feel entertaining and feel like it's of today."

Neither household name nor conventional star, MacFarlane is what is known in Hollywood as a "hyphenate," or someone who writes, produces, conceives, even sometimes finances and (in his case) voices his own creations, which include "Family Guy" and two other Fox shows, "American Dad" and "The Cleveland Show."

He wrote, directed and voiced the title character of "Ted," and is now prepping the sequel. He holds one of the richest production contracts in television history -- even Forbes or Fortune can't quite put a figure on it, but all you have to do is take a one and then add eight zeros, although even that is considered conservative.

His contract with Fox (reportedly) ends this year. A renewal is a.ssured. And, as mentioned, his voice is his best-known feature. His face? Not so much. That is about to change.

Who is MacFarlane and why is he hosting TV's most prestigious non-sports telecast?

The answers say almost as much about the Oscars telecast, circa 2013, as MacFarlane. Neil Meron, who is co-producing this year's show with his longtime partner, Craig Zadan, explained to reporters recently that MacFarlane "has great charm and embodies a kind of a post-millennium host, in the tradition of Johnny Carson, Bob Hope and Billy Crystal.

He is also the next step in terms of making the show current. And that was one of the goals that we had in mind -- to make this show current." Long -- probably too long -- saddled with an image of being a crusty (and encrusted) homage to Hollywood royalty, the Oscars badly want a mantle of "cool" befitting the world's most glamorous industry.

The Motion Picture Academy also wants to increase viewership for its biggest night (last year blipped back up to 39 million after years of decline, then stagnation, following 1998's 57 million high-water mark, when "Titanic" won best picture.)

More often than not, the burden of achieving both has fallen to the host, while the balancing act has proved cumbersome, if not impossible. The James Franco/Anne Hathaway 2011 combination was considered a disaster; the 2012 Billy Crystal one felt moldy and Old World.

Then, Zadan and Meron saw MacFarlane's "Saturday Night Live" season opener this past fall and decided they had their man -- after ABC raised obvious objections to the first choice of Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC's "Late Night." As "SNL" host, MacFarlane was, in fact, an anomaly:

He was excellent. He knew his lines, performed his skits effortlessly, nailed his monologue and even sang. Aren't those exactly the skills -- Meron and Zadan mused -- an Oscars host needs? An added bonus, or perhaps the biggest one: "Ted" had been a summer blockbuster, which obviously meant MacFarlane -- or his voice -- had a huge following.

But with MacFarlane came risks, and they are not insignificant. His type of humor is sharp, juvenile, derisive and relentlessly scatological. His shows have raked over virtually every major star who will be sitting in the Dolby Theatre tonight.

He likes (as viewers know) nothing better than a flatulence joke -- preferably involving someone dressed in a tux at a crowded party who is suddenly beset with an explosive and uncontrollable problem. (A scene in "Ted," by the way.) That's why many millions of teen boys are huge fans.

But a more complicated, or compelling, picture lies beyond the foul-mouthed soused frat-boy exterior. In a revealing and not entirely complimentary profile in the New Yorker last summer -- long before Meron and Zadan picked him -- MacFarlane said he never watches TV, dislikes the current pop standards, eschews most movies, and is even profoundly bored by "Family Guy."

MacFarlane, 39, also conveyed the image of someone born a half a century too late, who loves Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and -- yes -- probably d!ck Haymes, too.

A Connecticut native, he grew up in rural Kent, where artsy New York weekenders have long gravitated. He's the son of "hippies" (as he described them); his father, Ron, now lives in California, his mother, Perry, who worked at Kent School, which MacFarlane attended, died in 2010. A self-described nerd who loved superheroes and cartoons, he went to the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design and afterward gravitated to Hollywood, where he got a job as an animator with Hanna-Barbera, later creating "Family Guy" (based on an idea he developed while at RISD) for Fox in 1999.
What happened next earned a chapter in the history of television. Fox canceled the series after a couple of seasons, but reruns on Cartoon Network and a subsequent DVD release were both wildly popular. Fox reversed itself, and the show was reinstated.

"Guy" went on to become -- after "The Simpsons" -- the single most lucrative franchise in the network's history. "Guy" -- about the Griffin family of Quahog, R.I. -- has, of course, been controversial over its run. But while relentlessly lowbrow and raucously vulgar, it can be a razor-sharp send-up of American popular culture. It also reflects the values of the man who will be standing before the avatars of that culture in just a few hours.

Will MacFarlane turn into Oscars' own Ricky Gervais, who flamed much of this crowd at the Golden Globes a few years ago?

MacFarlane is ambiguous on this question: "You go into it knowing that no matter what, even if you put on the greatest show in the world, you're probably going to be lambasted in the press. So you might as well enjoy yourself, do the best you can knowing that the outcome is going to be the same. "It's -- it's a ruthless bit of scrutiny that you're under, so I'm not going to think about that. I'm just worrying about making it as funny as it can be and as fun as it can be."

Two historical dramas, one Academy Award. Though nine films are nominated in the Best Picture category ("Amour," "Argo," "Beasts of the Southern Wild," "Django Unchained," "Les Misérables," "Life of Pi," "Lincoln," "Silver Linings Playbook" and "Zero Dark Thirty"), the race will likely come down to Ben Affleck's thriller and Steven Spielberg's biopic — a contest, quite literally, for the history books.

How will each film fare? Who will win? That's what we're here to discuss. Put on your stovepipe hat (or pin-striped leisure suit) and get comfortable as we go back to the future to predict the Best Picture winner.

Who Should Win
"Argo" and "Lincoln" both achieved something great in that they presented suspenseful narratives woven from long-ago historical events that most of us studied in high-school history. Yet, for a few moments, didn't it seem like our 16th president might not get the 13th Amendment passed? Or that the Americans might not make it onto the plane out of Iran? Skillful story-crafting at work, but "Argo" seemed to shine just a bit brighter. Maybe it was the witty dialogue ("Argo, f--- yourself!") or the show business self-deprecation or Affleck's Justin Bieber haircut. Whatever the alchemy, "Argo" felt like a more complete movie-going experience, and for that it deserves Best Picture.

Who Will Win
Like we said, this is going to be too close to call. "Lincoln" may boast the most nominations with 12 total (including nods for Spielberg, Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field), but "Argo"'s been cleaning up awards season with Golden Globe, BAFTA and National Board of Review wins. Based on that momentum, we'll give "Argo" a slight advantage. But we won't take it personally if you veto us.

The Oscars rolled out the red carpet on Sunday for the movie industry's biggest night, with Iran hostage drama "Argo" and presidential drama "Lincoln" in a tight race for Best Picture.

With several contests too close to call, a slate of big box office hits to celebrate and an unpredictable first-time host in Seth MacFarlane, movie fans could be in for surprises when the curtain rises on the 85th annual Academy Awards.

Before the festivities begin, nominees including Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Sally Field, Jessica Chastain, British singer Adele and "Argo" producer George Clooney, along with performers Barbra Streisand and Jennifer Hudson will parade along the 500-ft long (152 meter) red carpet before dozens of photographers and camera crews.

Inside Hollywood's Dolby Theatre, Academy Awards history could be re-written.

Daniel Day-Lewis as U.S. President Abraham Lincoln is considered an unstoppable force to become the first man to win three Best Actor Oscars.

Buzz is building over a possible late upset by France's Emmanuelle Riva, 86, in the Best Actress contest that would make the star of harrowing Austrian entry "Amour" the oldest person ever to win an acting Oscar.

"Lincoln" goes into Sunday's three-hour plus ceremony with a leading 12 nominations, including a directing nod for double Oscar winner Steven Spielberg.

But its front-runner Best Picture status has been dented by the six-week victory streak enjoyed at other Hollywood awards by Ben Affleck's "Argo."

"It's been an interesting year," said Matt Atchity, editor in chief of movie review website Rotten Tomatoes.

"I think 'Argo' probably has the best shot. It's certainly got the momentum. It has won so many top awards, and I think it's probably the movie to beat," Atchity told Reuters.

If "Argo" does prevail for the top prize, it will be the first movie to win Best Picture without its director even getting a nomination since "Driving Miss Daisy" in 1990.

ANNE HATHAWAY OSCAR BOUND

Musical "Les Miserables," comedy "Silver Linings Playbook," shipwreck tale "Life of Pi," Osama bin laden thriller "Zero Dark Thirty," slavery Western "Django Unchained," indie film "Beasts of the Southern Wild," and "Amour" round out the contenders for the best film of 2012.

In other categories, only Anne Hathaway is considered a sure bet to take home a golden statuette after starving herself and chopping off her long brown locks for her supporting turn as tragic heroine Fantine in "Les Miserables."

Awards pundits says Spielberg could lose out in the director's race to Taiwan's Ang Lee for his technical and imaginative feat in filming fantastical adventure "Life of Pi" with a cast of exotic animals.

And the supporting actor Oscar could go to any of the five nominees - Robert De Niro ("Silver Linings Playbook"), Alan Arkin ("Argo"), Christoph Waltz ("Django Unchained"), Tommy Lee Jones ("Lincoln") and Philip Seymour Hoffman ("The Master").

The Oscar winners are chosen in secret ballots by some 5,800 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and handed out before an audience of 3,300 guests and tens of millions more watching around the world on television.

After several years of nominating little-seen movies, this year's nine Best Picture contenders have pulled in more than $2 billion in tickets worldwide.

"We are so fortunate to inherit this great group of films that are also popular at the box office ... We just lucked out and had this fantastic year in film," Academy Awards telecast co-producer Neil Meron told Reuters.

Producers are promising a fast-paced show packed with music and big performances. But the man getting the early attention will be MacFarlane, the provocative comedian behind animated TV series "Family Guy" and an unknown quantity as Oscar host.

"We are not going to know what works until we put it out there and see what plays in front of an audience," co-producer Craig Zadan said.

"It's a live show and that is always unpredictable. Once the train has left the station, whatever happens, happens."

The Academy Awards will be broadcast live on ABC television in the United States, starting at 5 p.m. PST (0100 GMT).
