The Year In Movie GIFs 2012
After spewing his fearlessly lewd and crude brand of comedy into television with Family Guy, American Dad! and The Cleveland Show, Seth MacFarlane made the leap to movies with a warped tale of a boy and his bear. Much like audiences have taken to his TV pairings of manchild and magical talking buddy, moviegoers adored Ted. Pulling in more than $500 million worldwide, this raunchy comedy was not only a financial success ten times over, but also the 8th highest grossing film of the year. Moreover, it's the highest grossing R-rated movie of the year with 21 Jump Street being its closest competition at #18. And all this outstanding success spurred the chronically austere Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to invite MacFarlane to be this year's Oscar MC… for better or worse.
