Many of this year’s nominees have traveled the Oscar road before. At this month’s annual luncheon, Associated Pressed asked the nominees to share how their previous experiences have changed how they’ve approached award season this year.

The 85th Academy Awards host will be Set MacFarlane — Family Guy creator, who works as an actor, voice actor, animator, screenwriter, comedian, producer, director and singer. He also wrote the screenplay Ted, directed Ted, and starred as the teddy bear (voice). MacFarlane is known to be passionately supportive of gay rights and gay marriage, but has been criticized as a hypocrite for “transphobic” content in an episode of Family Guy. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, a LGBT media watchdog organization, shared “serious concerns being voiced from members of the community” about the “Quagmire’s Dad” episode.
