Don't count on Seth MacFarlane to return as Oscars host anytime soon. MacFarlane posted a note on his Twitter account saying that there was "no way" he would host again, but that it was a lot of fun to have done it. Despite mostly bad reviews from critics, MacFarlane did manage to boost the show's ratings 11 percent. As if winning an Oscar wasn't enough, Adele again had the highest selling album of 2012. The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry released its sales data, and Adele's "21" sold more worldwide than any other album - 8.3 million copies. Second place went to Taylor Swift and her album "Red," which sold 5.2 million copies globally. Finally, Jennifer Lawrence tripped more than once at the Oscars: the actress forgot to thank "Silver Linings Playbook" director David O. Russell and producer Harvey Weinstein in her acceptance speech. The actress released a statement to Entertainment Weekly, apologizing for forgetting them and praising their work. Lawrence closed the note saying, "my mind went completely blank - your brain does funny things during the most overwhelming moment of your life!"
