In the Academy's continuing quest to lure the young'uns advertisers so covet, four more short clips featuring Oscar host Seth MacFarlane have been released in anticipation of the February awards ceremony.

After the nominations were announced on Thursday, MacFarlane pretended to be nominated method-actor Daniel Day-Lewis -- and now he wants you to ask your kids who he is, learn how to spell, watch his mute silence and listen to him drink off-screen.

Blessedly, no 'Family Guy' jokes. Yet.
