Neil Patrick Harris has crossed off “host the Oscars” on his bucket list with today’s announcement he will do the honors in 2015.

This gives us a perfect opportunity to post video of NPH  in “Company” because we never want to miss a chance to feature him and Stephen Sondheim.

NPH’s versatility is scary awesome and he should have no problem handling the honors. Is there anybody who doesn’t admire this guy?

But if you still need proof Harris has the chops to knock an opening number out of the park, check out my favorite NPH awards show  this one at Radio City Music Hall from 2013 when he wowed some of the most talented actors in America.
