Oscar host Seth MacFarlane: 'Crippling insecurity drives you to do your best'

Seth MacFarlane may have snagged one of the most prized slots in Hollywood as the host of next year’s Oscars, but apparently he’s as hard on himself, deeply self-conscious, and afraid of failing as the next guy.

At least that’s what the Family Guy creator revealed on Tuesday – a day after the widespread announcement he would host the 85th annual Academy Awards – at’s third annual media leadership conference TheGrill, in West Hollywood. MacFarlane spoke to the site’s founder and CEO Sharon Waxman in an on-stage keynote called Seth MacFarlane: Interview With a Demented Genius.

MacFarlane has had a busy past few months, from hosting Saturday Night Live to being a presenter at the Primetime Emmy Awards last month to his new Oscar gig. Tuesday, MacFarlane was the casual opposite of upscale Oscar chic in jeans, a blue-and-white checked shirt and grey Converse without laces, his short brown hair slicked into place, grinning a wide-mouthed smile, writer-animator-voiceover artist MacFarlane gave hope to self-deprecating creative types everywhere.
