Variety just broke the story that Neil Patrick Harris, currently romancing Ms. Amy in Gone Girl will host this year’s Oscars. The wonderfully funny actor is a crowdpleaser and will definitely keep the show entertaining throughout. He’s hosted the Emmys twice, the Tonys and now he’ll add the Oscars to his list, Variety’s Tim Gray says, bringing that much closer to the EGOT. Here he is performing at the Oscars in 2010. Last year’s show brought the highest ratings in 14 years.
