The 2015 Oscars will be held on the 22nd of February, and will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.
Harris is no stranger to hosting shows, as he’s hosted the Emmy Awards twice and the Tony Awards 4 times.
The How I Met Your Mother star was reportedly offered the gig after last year’s host, Ellen DeGeneres refused to make a comeback.
In announcing their choice of Harris, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who will be producing the show for the third year in a row, said in a statement, “We are thrilled to have Neil host the Oscars.”
“We have known him his entire adult life, and we have watched him explode as a great performer in feature films, television and stage. To work with him on the Oscars is the perfect storm, all of his resources and talent coming together on a global stage.”
