Introduction!

-I decided to choose Seth MacFarlane to research because he's a hard worker; being a singer, comedian, animator, and voice actor all at the same time.  I also enjoyed watching his movies and animations, and they definitely always give me a laugh.

 

-Seth Macfarlane is an animation pioneer because he completely added another aspect to animations... comedy!  The one thing that his audience always expects from his work is the ridiculous humor, and that has definitely made him one of the most well-known people in the animation industry.  His comedic television shows and movies have always given people a laugh, and you can't deny his skill in animation.

 

Seth MacFarlane Biography

           Seth Woodbury MacFarlane (known as Seth MacFarlane) was born in Kent, Connecticut on October 26th, 1973.  Seth had a family of four,  with a mom, dad and younger sister.  He began drawing cartoons at age 2, and even got his comic strip “Walter Crouton” published in his local newspaper, at age 8.  In later years, Seth recieved his education at Kent High School in Connecticut, and later attended Rhode Island School of Design to study animation for college.  After graduation, Seth began his career by animating for big name companies. His first job of many would begin at Hanna-Barbera Productions (now known as Cartoon Network Studios), where he contributed to the animated television series Cow and Chicken (1995) and Johnny Bravo (1997).   He also worked for Walt Disney Animation as a writer on the TV series Jungle Cubs (1996).  At this point in his career however, he wasn't known as the celebrity he is now, but in 1999, FOX Studios payed him $50,000 to start a T.V. show that is now known as Family Guy.  The show immediately found success, and this started the foundation of Seth's future accomplishments.  The show was so popular in fact, that in 2005, it was brought back by popular demand from the fans after the show was canceled in 2002.  Aside from Family Guy though, Seth has created other films and shows such as American Dad!, The Cleveland Show, Ted and Ted 2, A Million Ways to Die in the West, and many others. popular creations.  Some of those films and series were very popular, as others were quite dissapointing. Nevertheless, Seth has been rewarded several times for his outstanding work. He's been nominated for many awards, so many in fact that I can't count them all, but he has won: 2 Primetime Emmy Awards (2000 and 2002), 1 Anny Award (2006), 1 ASCAP Award (2013), 1 Louis XIII Genius Award (2015), 1 Jupiter Award (2013), 1 MTV Award (2013), 4 OFTA Awards (2005, 2007, 2008, and 2013), 1 PGA Award (2015), and 1 Animation Writers Caucus Animation Award (2016), making that 13 total awards that he's won.  To this day, he works as a screenwriter, actor, comedian, writer, televison producer, and singer.  Seth earns a net worth of  approximately $150 Million, and has definitely earned the right to say that he's a animation specialist. He's truly become a celebrity, and has earned respect of many people, as he has hosted multiple award ceremonies and events.  At only age 43, he still has a long way to go in his career, but he's already made a name for himsef.  Who knows what he might do next?
