“Seth MacFarlane is hosting the Academy Awards this year, and Entertainment Weekly wanted to create a cover that NOT ONLY had a nod to the Oscars but also recognized a few of the popular animated and CG characters that Seth has brought to life—namely, Ted and Stewie,” Art explains.

Toni Thompson from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences brought the actual Oscar, the folks at the FOX Animation Design Department drew Stewie in a tuxedo, and the digital artists at Tippett Studio in Berkeley, California, put Ted in black tie. Our sets were built by Jamie Dean, who also figured out how to turn Oscar into cufflinks and emblazon him on a pair of black socks.”
