Neil Patrick Harris To Host Emmy Awards

Neil Patrick Harris will host the 61st Annual Emmy Awards, set to air Sept. 20 on CBS.

The 36-year-old How I Met Your Mother star hosted last year’s Creative Arts Emmy Awards and last month, NPH hosted the 2009 Tony Awards (ratings were up 20%).

Last year at the Emmy Awards, reality mainstays Heidi Klum, Tom Bergeron, Howie Mandel, Jeff Probst and Ryan Seacrest shared hosting duties.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see NPH host this year’s Emmys?

    You’re forgetting “star” or “actor” after the title!

    @kate: hey that sucks. it was an error. it’s pretty common when typing. just because he forgot a word doesn’t mean english isn’t his first language. -_-

    anyway, at least neil is funny. those other five were bland at best.

    I love NPH! With him hosting not only will I watch the Emmy’s but I’ll actually pay attention – at least when he is on the screen. Now if only he could present himself with a reward for Dr. Horrible…….
