VIDEO: Here’s why Neil Patrick Harris will be an amazing Oscars host

We couldn’t be more excited to hear that Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting 2015 Academy Awards (some of us we’re weeping with joy).

If you don’t understand why we’re so excited about the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star hosting the (arguably) most looked forward award show of the year,please allow us to explain.

Neil Patrick Harris just might be one of the most entertaining award show hosts ever.

The actor has four Tony Award hosting gigs, two Emmy Award hosting gigs, and one attempted People’s Choice Award hosting gig under his belt so far.

Here’s when he tried to hijack the People’s Choices Award show:

Here’s his mid-show musical number for the 2013 Emmy Awards (featuring Sarah Silverman and Nathan Fillion):

Here’s his duet with Hugh Jackman who jokingly referred to him as “Neil Patrick Harrison.” Can we get these two on stage together more often?

Will there be a musical number at the 2015 Oscars? Based off Harris’ penchant for them, we’re putting our money on “yes.”

Do you feel that? It’s excitement.
