After hosting the 85th Annual Academy Awards, Seth MacFarlane drew his fair share of fans and critics.

But the Family Guy creator won't return to the stage to host next year's show, he revealed in a series of Tweets on Monday.

"Traumatized critics exhale: I'm unable to do the Oscars again. Tried to make it work schedule-wise, but I need sleep," he wrote.

"However, I highly recommend the job, as Zadan and Meron are two of the most talented producers in the business. My suggestion for host is Joaquin Phoenix," he Tweeted.
