Neil Patrick Harris To Host 2015 Oscars

16 October 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Over the past few years, we’ve seen some terrific Oscar hosts (the inimitable Billy Crystal), some awful ones (the painfully unfunny Seth MacFarlane) and some ones whom we’re not really sure even remember being there (here’s looking at you, James Franco). But for next year’s ceremony, the Academy has opted to turn to someone who is almost guaranteed to deliver a legen (wait for it!) dary show. That’s right, folks – meet your new host, Tony winner Neil Patrick Harris.

While this will be Harris’ first time hosting the Oscars, he has plenty of experience, having hosted the Tonys four times and the Emmys twice. The new gig puts him one show away from a hosting Egot, with only the Grammys left to check off (and just wait, he’ll get there).

Meanwhile, the How I Met Your Mother alum is having a pretty spectacular month. »

Neil Patrick Harris Set to Host the Oscars in 2015

16 October 2014 8:08 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It has been officially announced that Neil Patrick Harris is set to host the 87th annual Oscar awards ceremony in 2015. Harris is one entertaining dude, and I think he will absolutely kill it as the host for this event. No one will ever beat Billy Crystal, though. I've been watching the Oscars since I was a kid, and that guy is my all-time favorite Academy Award host. Harris is sure to give viewers an incredibly entertaining show, though, and I'm glad that they chose him to take on the challenge.

The nominations for the 87th Academy Awards will be announced live on Thursday, January 15th, 2015, at 5:30 a.m. Pt in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater. The actual Oscar ceremony will be held on Sunday, February 22nd, 2015, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood and will be televised live on ABC.

13 times Neil Patrick Harris proved he is the ultimate Oscars host

16 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

After hosting the Emmys twice, the Tonys four times, the Spike Video Game Awards, Saturday Night Live and even the Disney Parks Christmas Parade, Neil Patrick Harris has landed the 2015 Oscars gig.

To mark the thespian's appointment, here are a collection of career highlights which show why Nph is the perfect Academy Awards host.

1. Showstopping opening numbers

A Neil Patrick Harris-hosted show wouldn't be complete without several large scale musical numbers, but the opening piece is the biggest spectacle. When Nph is hosting a show, his performances are often the most memorable moments the next day.

He finds a perfect blend of mickey-taking and adoration about the subjects he is singing about, and his timing is impeccable. If the Academy wants someone who is safe, yet cheeky, Nph is perfect.

2. Playing the ultimate diva

If you want an example of flamboyant stage presence, just watch him in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, »

'Gone Girl's' Neil Patrick Harris to host the Oscars

Former Tony and Emmy host Neil Patrick Harris is extending his emcee portfolio to the Oscars: he's tapped to host the 87th annual Academy Awards on Feb. 22. Harris confirmed the news via Twitter like only he could... http://t.co/ZG1EC9ooxK — Neil Patrick Harris (@ActuallyNPH) October 15, 2014 The news was first reported by Variety. It's a perfectly safe choice for show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who will be at it for a third straight year this time around. After negative fallout (but a boost in ratings) from the Seth MacFarlane-hosted 85th annual show two years ago, they went with former host Ellen DeGeneres last year, and in Harris (who also stars in David Fincher's "Gone Girl," currently in release), they will get a consummate showman who won't ruffle too many feathers, but certainly won't be boring. He's no stranger to awards in general, given the hosting gigs over the years, »

10 Things You Learn From Reading Neil Patrick Harris’s Autobiography

14 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Neil Patrick Harris — or, Nph as I’ll be calling him — has had an enviable life. The 41-year-old actor has starred on two hit TV shows, first as a child star on Doogie Howser, then as lothario Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother. He is a Tony Award–winning actor, an Emmy Award–winning host of the Tonys, president of the Magic Castle, and arguably the biggest out gay male celebrity. You ostensibly get to live all of this amazing life through his new autobiography, Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography, which is written like an adventure book with multiple options. You can hop from page to page or just read it straight through; either way, you will find amusing anecdotes, from the first time he had gay sex to the time Scott Caan tried to get into a “fight” with him.1.
