Seth MacFarlane (“Ted”) hosted the Oscars and garnered a lot of strong reactions.  Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron asked MacFarlane to come back, but he declined on Twitter. It makes sense. He’ll be working on “A Million Ways to Die in the West” starring Neil Patrick Harris, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, Charlize Theron and Liam Neeson.
