Is there anything this guy can't do?!
Neil Patrick Harris has quite an impressive resume. From television’s youngest doctor to broadway superstar to loving father and husband, NPH does it all! But as of yesterday, he can add Academy Awards emcee to his long list of accomplishments.
Harris announced yesterday that he would be hosting the 87th Annual Academy Awards this February in typical NPH style. A Twitter video revealed Harris answering a phone call and calmly responding, "I’m in."
The camera then pans down to reveal Harris’ bucket list. Which is, not surprising, legendary.
The camera skims through various checked off activities, including but not limited to white water rafting, sleeping in Cinderella’s castle, and getting married, all leading down to the final unchecked task: hosting the Oscars.
This isn’t NPH’s first time at the emcee rodeo. For four years straight, he hosted the Tonys, as well as hosting the Emmys twice. If Harris can also score a Grammys hosting gig, he will be the first person to ever host all four major entertainment award shows!
The past few Academy Awards ceremonies have given us excellent hosts. Ellen DeGeneres broke Twitter with her celeb-filled selfie, Anne Hathaway and James Franco dressed in drag, and Seth Macfarlane gave us inappropriate jokes. (Okay, some excellent hosts.) Based on Neil Patrick Harris’ magnetic personality, raw talent, and showbiz experience, this year’s Academy Awards will be the best one yet!
