Neil Patrick Harris to host 2015 Oscars

Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting next year's Academy Awards ceremony, according to those in charge of organising Hollywood's biggest night.

Harris, 41, best known as Barney Stinson on sitcom How I Met Your Mother, is no stranger to award audiences.

His previous hosting forays included the 2013 Emmy Awards and the Tony Awards in 2012 and 2013.

He was so outstanding that he won three Emmy awards for hosting theater's Tony Awards.

Talk show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres hosted the Oscars ceremony this year, and drew the highest Oscars telecast audience in 14 years with 43.7 million tuning in live.

She poked fun at the powerful people in the room, handed out pizza and took a star-studded selfie that set Twitter's record for most retweets.

We have no doubt that Harris will be just as amazing.

Here are some of his best hosting moments:





The 87th Oscars will be presented in a televised ceremony from Los Angeles on Feb 22 next year.

Will he be able to draw the younger audiences that the Academy is hankering after?

Let's see.

Let's see.
