Yep, Neil Patrick Harris has officially been announced to be the host of the 87th Academy Awards.
“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. 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.”
He means it too, for he did a video of him marking it off his bucket list.
