Seth MacFarlane was really the host with the most after the 85th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday.
Following the Oscars, the Family Guy creator hosted 500 people at an after-party at the Lot in West Hollywood.
Accompanied by a 100-piece orchestra, MacFarlane performed a few numbers for guests including "Someday."

From Seth's take on Ben's snub to Jen's hunger pains, relive the night's memorable one-liners

Hosting the Oscars, they say, is a thankless job. So, Seth MacFarlane, thanks for nothing.
This isn't to say he can be blamed for a long evening that seemed to be devoted more to singing than handing out awards.
On the other hand, he doesn't get credit for the show's best moments, either: Adele's powerful performance of "Skyfall," Daniel Day-Lewis's charmingly stiff humor in his acceptance speech for Lincoln – it was so like Abe! – or Michelle Obama's surprising and generous gesture: appearing via satellite to announce the Best Picture winner.

A person's favorite film says a lot about – especially when it's Oscar season.
Researchers at Facebook have found some interesting links between moviegoers' Oscar picks and their other interests.
For example, if you're rooting for David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook to take home Best Picture during Sunday's 85th Academy Awards, chances are your other interests on Facebook include Smarties (the candy!), musical acts LMFAO and Ke$ha and films like Wreck-It Ralph and Despicable Me.

Seth MacFarlane isn't crying over spilled popcorn.
Before he gets down to the business of hosting on Sunday's 85th Annual Academy Awards, MacFarlane 39, posed in a lighthearted set of promotional photos, leading up to Hollywood's biggest night.
In one of the shots, the Family Guy creator is holding a tub of popcorn – but in the next, the kernels are flying everywhere, much to the star's delight. In another shot, MacFarlane does his best impression of Oscar himself.

This year's Oscars may not take place until Feb. 24, but the ceremony's host, Seth MacFarlane, already started earning his salary Thursday morning – by joining Emma Stone to announce the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Beverly Hills.
And the name that kept coming up: Lincoln, which reaped the lion's share number of nominations, 12, including those for Best Picture, Best Director Steven Spielberg, Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Supporting Actress Sally Field.
Other highly recognized films were Life of Pi, with 11 nominations; Les Misérables, with nine; and Argo, with seven, though, surprisingly, not one for its director Ben Affleck.
