Variety was the first to announce but now it's confirmed! Neil Patrick Harris will be the host for the 87th Oscars held on February 22nd, 2015. It's not the first time that NPH will be hosting a big awards show, but it will be the first time for the Oscars. He has previously hosted the Emmy and Tony Awards to much praise. Guess he is going for the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) of hosting. Maybe he will get the call for the Grammys as well, he does have a wonderful singing ability (he did just win a Tony).
The 87th Oscars will be broadcasted live on Sunday, February 22nd on ABC. Do you think Neil Patrick Harris will make a good host?
I guess he did give us some idea with his video tweet yesterday.

This 8-year-old has some serious dance moves. Charlie got caught on video by his mom and now the video has gone viral, over 8 million views on Facebook while he was dancing along with the classic movie "Dirty Dancing". I mean really, he looks like a mini Patrick Swayze. I think I see a remake in the works with Charlie starring as Johnny Castle. Get more on the story here.
If you're a "Dancing with the Stars" diehard like I am you were waiting for this all season long. Alfonso Ribeiro who played Carlton on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" did his infamous "Carlton" dance to the Tom Jones classic "It's Not Unusual" on last night's most memorable year theme night. And of course, he performed it to absolute perfection and that wasn't just my opinion, but also the opinions of the judges and apparently all the viewers. He walked away with the highest score of the night, a 40 out of 40.
"Dancing with the Stars" airs Monday nights on ABC at 7pm. Check out the full video below or go to the 1:30 mark just to see the dance performance. It's everything I hoped it would be.
Rumor has it that a "Full House" revival may be in the works. No, not a spin off, but an actual revival with most of the original cast. Warner Bros. Television is at the head of the talks with John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse, spearheading the idea along with the creator of "Full House" Jeff Franklin and executive producer Bob Boyett. Reruns on Nick at Nite have been bringing in lots of viewers, including those who weren't even born when the series was originally running. John Stamos recently said on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" that there has been work on a twist with a sequel. Most of the original cast is rumored to be on board with the exception of Mary Kate and Ashely Olsen. If this actually does happen, I may have to break down and actually buy cable. All I can say is, "Have Mercy!"
The 66th Annual Primetime Emmys happened on Monday with Seth Meyers serving as first time host and the theme of the night was "Breaking Bad" still reigns supreme even though the show is no longer running. "Breaking Bad" took home the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, and Outstanding Drama Series. "Modern Family" also won big with the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Comedy Series for the 5th year in a row. Some other memorable moments were the touching tribute to Robin Williams from Billy Crystal, Gwen Stefani butchering the name of "The Colbert Report" and the bromance between Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.
