The members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are always happy to acknowledge big action movies, franchise films and mega-hits -- especially if there's a possibility they'll boost the ratings of the Oscars telecast and bring in the young folks.This year's producers tapped comic hipster and "Family Guy" Seth MacFarlane to host Sunday's ceremony.
