Neil Patrick HarrisThis years Oscars will and on February 15 and Neil Patrick Harris will be the host for the event, Variety is reporting. Harris has performed on the Academy Awards show, but this will be his first time as host. Harris hosted the Tony Awards last year and Emmy in 2013 and 2009, so with Oscar, he is apparently going for the Egot sweep of hosts. (All that remains is Grammy.) He is appearing in Fox’s B.O. hit “Gone Girl.”

He has won five Emmys and this year took home a Tony for the lead role in the musical “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will be handling their third consecutive Oscar producing stint (Variety, April 21), working in conjunction with Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and ABC honchos.

The 87th Oscar show will air live on ABC TV.
