The `Family Guy` creator - who is hosting the 85th annual Academy Awards for the first time on 24.02.13 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood - has revealed he hasn`t slept well in five months since taking on the high profile job and compared his preparation to cramming for an exam.
He told E! News: "It`s the same way you prep for the SATs. There`s no prep, except get a good night`s sleep. I haven`t had good night`s sleep in five months."
Seth previously revealed that he doesn`t think he will be asked back to host the event next year and tipped this year`s Golden Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to take over the job despite it being such a big commitment.
Asked whether they had given him any advice following their success as award show hosts earlier this month, he said: "Quit while you`re ahead."
The funnyman previously revealed he had "no reservations" about taking on the presenting job until after he accepted it. He said: "Oddly, I had no reservations. Subsequently, the thought crossed my mind maybe I am in over my head. But we`ve all worked so hard on this program. If this thing tanks, it won`t be for lack of preparation. I will have put five months of work into this."
The 39-year-old star, who is dating `Game of Thrones` actress Emilia Clarke, 24, is planning to sing and dance during the ceremony, which will also include performances by Adele, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Barbara Streisand and Norah Jones.
