Seth MacFarlane is aiming to bring more ''edge'' to this year's Oscars.

The funnyman is set to host the 85th Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on February 24 and while he feels he feels it's one of the ''hardest'' jobs to undertake - especially after gaining a reputation from his successful work, including adult animated comedy 'Family Guy' - Seth acknowledges he won't be able to please the entire ''tough'' audience of stars.

Seth told reporters: ''I've set myself up for the hardest job in the world because the fans of 'Family Guy' and 'Ted' and the shows and whatnot that I do are expecting one thing. If I deliver that, this crowd will walk out.

''The whole point of their bringing me on was to give it a little bit more of an edge. You have a room full of people who are at the top of their game - they're successful, they're being honoured, they're attractive - and yet this is also the group with the thinnest skin on the planet. So it's a tough group.''

Although Seth, 39, is ''thrilled'' to a part of such a huge event, he suspects it may be the only ceremony he will be asked to host and has made sure he will enjoy the occasion.

He added: ''This will probably be the only time I'm asked to do this. It feels like a one-off. But I'm still thrilled to be doing it. It's going to be a lot of fun. I will very much enjoy having done it once it's over.''

Producers of the ceremony, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, are confident Seth will do a ''great'' job and believe he is the perfect choice for the role.

Neil recently said: ''He's going to be very present as a host, as a host should. Seth really does understand and have great reverence for the music of the movies. He loves it.''
