Variety was the first to announce but now it’s confirmed! Neil Patrick Harris will be the host for the 87th Oscars held on February 22nd, 2015. It’s not the first time that NPH will be hosting a big awards show, but it will be the first time for the Oscars. He has previously hosted the Emmy and Tony Awards to much praise. Guess he is going for the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) of hosting. Maybe he will get the call for the Grammys as well, he does have a wonderful singing ability (he did just win a Tony).
The 87th Oscars will be broadcasted live on Sunday, February 22nd on ABC. Do you think Neil Patrick Harris will make a good host?
I guess he did give us some idea with his video tweet yesterday.
