However you felt about the performance of Seth MacFarlane as Oscar host, he certainly got everyone talking.

So will he be back for a second go-round?

The comedian’s answer was definite.

“No way,” MacFarlane tweeted in response to a fan who asked if he'd consider it. “Lotta fun to have done it, though.”

MacFarlane received mixed to negative reviews for his turn as host, with many offended by jokes that were perceived as racist, sexist or homophobic. There were a few that landed, but many felt his routine was dominated by objectionable humor.

He presided on a night where the film “Argo,” which focused on a little-known aspect of the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis and was directed by Ben Affleck, won Best Picture. Actor Daniel Day-Lewis made history when he took home his third Best Actor statuette for the movie “Lincoln,” while first-time winners Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence won the Best Supporting Actress for “Les Miserables” and Best Actress prize for “Silver Linings Playbook,” respectively. Actor Christoph Waltz won his second Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for the movie “Django Unchained.”
