America's hostingest person Neil Patrick Harris will host the Oscars in February, Variety reports. Harris has hosted the Tonys a bunch of times and the Emmys twice, plus he's won four Emmys for his Tony hosting — so this isn't exactly coming out of nowhere. If there's any justice in this sad universe, his Oscar gig will include a glorious musical number in line with his "bigger, better" opening song for the 2013 Tonys, which is among the best awards-show numbers ever.
