5 Times Neil Patrick Harris Won the Oscars
HE GAVE US OUR NEWEST EARWORM
A fair warning to our coworkers: We’ll be singing host opening number – a cheeky ode to moving pictures topped off with the inevitable joke – all day Monday. Helping Harris open the show: Anna Kendrick, Jack Black and, of course, a gaggle of Stormtroopers.
HE UNDERSTOOD EXACTLY HOW WE FEEL ABOUT CHANNING
Harris introduced to present as “an actor who is as appealing playing a stripper as a wrestler.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
HE WAS MORE SERIOUS ABOUT WINNING HIS OSCARS POOL THAN YOU
We thought we cared about making a quick $50, but then we watched Harris lock up his Oscars predictions into a sealed case, prop them in a box on the stage and hold Octavia Spencer responsible for keeping an eye on them during the show. (Seriously, Meryl, don’t even try.)
HE LET US LISTEN TO DAVID'S HOT ACCENT
On a mission to prove everything sounds better when you’re British, he asked Oyelowo to read some lines to the audience. Honestly, we were too busy trying not to faint to even hear the Selma star’s pass at 2014’s Annie remake.
HE STRIPPED DOWN TO HIS UNDERWEAR
Don’t you just hate it when you’re trying to host the Oscars, but you get locked out of your dressing room? In this mid-show bit, Harris was forced to take the stage in nothing but his skivvies, which makes our sweatpants look pretty fancy right about now.
