According to a report from NBC Los Angeles, Seth MacFarlane was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame for his contributions to film and television. Fans of MacFarlane can finally relax, as the four-time Emmy winner has been acknowledged for his continual success in the industry.
Perhaps best known for creating Fox’s Family Guy, Seth also created American Dad for Fox as well as the science fiction series, The Orville. Seth also worked as an executive producer for the 2014 series, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.
Moreover, MacFarlane voiced the teddy bear in the 2012 film, Ted, as well as in its sequel, Ted 2. Seth created the movie in 2014, A Million Ways To Day In The West as well. Some of the performers to honor Seth at the event were Ann Druyan, Mila Kunis, as well as Ted Danson.
Mila Kunis is the voice of Meg on Family Guy, and Ted Danson has worked with Seth in episodes of American Dad as well. Dryuan, on the other hand, was one of the original creators of the Cosmos series that aired, starring Carl Sagan, on PBS in 1980.

MacFarlane’s contributions to television are vast, for which he has been acknowledged, including 22 times at the Emmy Awards. Ironically, the show that brought him to prominence, Family Guy, has never been voted as the best show, due, possibly, to its controversial nature.
In fact, in one episode of Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane and other writers addressed this phenomenon.
While Family Guy has never received an Emmy Award, Seth has received nominations and Emmy acknowledgments for other Griffin-related ventures, including his voice-over for the character, Stewie, who is arguably the most popular character, next to Peter Griffin.
Family Guy has received nominations, however, for its musical contributions including “You’ve Got A Lot To See,” from the episode “Brian Wallows and Peter Swallows.”
