Joaquin Phoenix was nominated at the Academy awards for the best performance by an actor in a leading role for his role in the film The Master.

Seth MacFarlane has revealed on Twitter that he is too busy to host the Oscars in 2014.

The 39-year-old comedian wrote on the micro blogging site that he "tried to make it work schedule-wise, but I need sleep," ABC News reported.

MacFarlane tweeted on Monday that the Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who produced this year's Oscar show, are among the best in the business.

The multi-talented actor earned mixed reviews for his first outing as Oscar host in February, with some finding his material sexist and anti-Semitic.

He suggested Oscar producers to tap the eccentric actor Joaquin Phoenix to host the show.
