Neil Patrick Harris to Host the Oscars 2015!

Neil Patrick Harris is set to host the 2015 Academy Awards this year, JustJared.com can confirm.

The 41-year-old actor will take the stage at the February 22 ceremony for his first time hosting the big show.

Neil is no stranger to the Oscars stage, as he has performed at the show before – he is also definitely no stranger to hosting award shows! Neil has hosted the Tonys and the Emmys in recent years, so we should expect an amazing show!

“It is truly an honor and a thrill to be asked to host this year’s Academy Awards. I grew up watching the Oscars and was always in such awe of some of the greats who hosted the show,” Neil said in a statement. “To be asked to follow in the footsteps of Johnny Carson, Billy Crystal, Ellen DeGeneres, and everyone else who had the great fortune of hosting is a bucket list dream come true.”

Neil made the news official with a cute video of his bucket list, and the only thing unchecked is hosting the Oscars.

ARE YOU EXCITED that Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting the Oscars??
