Neil Patrick Harris' Oscars 2015 Prediction Box: Octavia Spencer Wasn't In on the Bit!

Neil Patrick Harris steps out with what looks like a gift box from Tiffany’s on Wednesday evening (February 25) in Los Angeles.

The 41-year-old actor recently commented on his 2015 Oscars hosting gig with a funny joke.

During the show, Neil enlisted Octavia Spencer to watch his predictions box, and it turns out – she wasn’t in on the big joke.

“I wanted our interactions to be organic and authentic. At the end of the night, when the audience was starting to leave, she was standing there staring at the box trying to figure it out. I’m very appreciative for Octavia and her assisting me. She’s wonderful,” NPH told EW.

    That whole bit was painfully unfunny and I cannot believe it went on and on like that. It was just… bad.

    I am sure he is probably a very nice man and a talented actor, but the Oscars do better with a comedian as the host. The best hosts IMO in the past have been Bob Hope (yes I am that old), Johnny Carson and Billy Crystal. Ellen was also pretty funny.
