The host of the next Oscars has been announced...
Neil Patrick Harris has been comfirmed to host the 87th annual Oscars.
Congratulations to my uber-talented pal @ActuallyNPH on hosting the Oscars! They could not have made a better choice, except Mickey Rourke.— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) October 15, 2014
We have a bit of a wait though... The Academy Awards happen on Sunday, February 22, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
This will be Harris’ first stint as Oscar host, but he is known for his hosting proclivities that have included fronting the Emmys (twice) and the Tony Awards (four times).
In fact he even helped out with a mock PSA for the 2013 Primetime Emmys dubbed “Excessive Hosting Disorder.”
