What a wonderful future we live in!
We can't cure cancer yet, and nobody is leaving work in a flying car, but HEY — we can have a teddy bear voiced by Seth MacFarlane present an award at the Oscars with Mark Wahlberg!
We say that's a fair trade, LOLz!!
Ted, of course, is voiced by our host. Or is he? Maybe Ted is actually real, because he made this statement:
"I'm excited to present an Oscar with Mark Wahlberg. I'm spending the next month learning to pronounce 'Quvenzhané.'"
We wonder if he'll be extremely toned down! We hope not, but probz!
Here's what the show producers said:
"We are happy to make it possible for Mark and Ted to make their debut appearance on the Oscar stage. And we won't deny that Ted used his pull with our host to get himself the booking."
Get it?? Because they're the same person! HA!
We really are pulling for Seth this year, and we hope he isn't afraid to be himself. It's gonna be super hard to follow the Golden Globes, though!!
Good luck guys — we hope Mila joins you!!
