Neil Patrick Harris wasn’t brilliant for most of his first evening hosting the Oscars®, but when he picked his spots he definitely sparkled – his few comments on the lack of diversity in the Academy’s selections (‘…celebrating Hollywood’s best and whitest, sorry, brightest;’ Oh, sure ! You like them now!’) may not have been many, but they were perfect – making the point and then moving on (from that first dig right into a stunning eight-minute song and dance number that dropped him into classic movie scenes).
Master of Ceremonies specialist Neil Patrick Harris, veteran of many Tony Awards shows; star of stage, screen and television and singer-dancer-actor triple-threat par excellence, has been selected to host the 2015 Academy Awards.
