Neil Patrick Harris Will Host the 2015 Oscars

Neil Patrick Harris has checked off another item off his bucket list.

On Wednesday afternoon, NPH shared the following video with his 10.6 million Twitter followers:


That’s an Oscar-five to you, sir.

NPH will follow the footsteps of last year’s host Ellen DeGeneres, who as we all know, did a fine job at last year’s Academy Awards.

The 41-year-old is not new to the hosting scene. Harris has hosted the Tony Awards four times, including the 2013 ceremonies.

The How I Met Your Mother star recently completed a five-month run on Broadway starring in the lead role of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Nominations for the 87th Academy Awards will be announced on Jan. 15, 2015, followed by the NPH show on Feb. 22, 2015.
