For the first time in 40 years, the host of the Academy Awards will help announce the Oscar nominations.


Academy officials say Oscar host Seth MacFarlane will join actress Emma Stone to reveal the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards.


This is the first time since 1972 that an Oscar host has participated in the nominations announcement.


Charlton Heston was the only other show host to announce Oscar nominees.
