Now that Seth MacFarlane has announced the 2013 Oscar nominees, there's no backing out of hosting the big show.

"I could come up with somethin'," MacFarlane assured.

Future excuses aside, MacFarlane is locked and loaded as host of the 2013 Academy Awards ceremony, which takes place Feb. 24 (ABC, CTV). On Thursday MacFarlane and Emma Stone announced the nominees, and now, according to MacFarlane, his job can kick into high gear.

"We had no list of actual nominees, and today that all changes," MacFarlane said. "We have some targets for our jokes and can really start digging into it."
