The 2013 Oscar nominees

Last Updated: Thu, Jan 10, 2013 15:06 hrs

Seth MacFarlane arrived on stage at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater, Beverly Hills to create history. He is the second Oscar host to announce nominations. He was preceded by Charlton Heston in 1972.

Live at 5:30 a.m. EST, he wondered aloud why they don't consider announcing it at noon. After receiving a couple of chuckles, MacFarlane went on to invite Emma Stone to join him.
