Seth MacFarlane will be hosting the Oscars this year, and he surprised a class at UCLA to announce that a lucky student from anywhere across the country could win a trip to be there in person.
The Family Guy creator held a Q&A session with the film students on Wednesday, where he not only revealed someone could win a trip to be at the Academy Awards but that he had plans for a movie based on his popular cartoon show.
“Basically, they’re looking for students who are interested in pursuing careers in the film industry,” MacFarlane told the students. “You enter this search, you win a trip to L.A.”
He added in response to some laughs, “And you get to go up onstage and help me hand out some Oscars.”
In a statement, Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, said, “We wanted everyone appearing on that stage to feel a deep commitment to film and its legacy and, most importantly, its future.”
Applicants need to make a 30-second video answering the question “How will you contribute to the future of movies?”
Furthermore, when answering questions, MacFarlane revealed that a Family Guy movie is very likely, “It’s just a matter of when.”
