After dazzling everyone with amazing production numbers during his stint as the host of the Tony Awards, Neil Patrick Harris adds another awesome item to his list of achievements. On Wednesday, representatives from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences confirmed that Harris will be hosting the Academy Awards in 2015. Oscars, baby!


"It is truly an honor and a thrill to be asked to host this year's Academy Awards. I grew up watching the Oscars and was always in such awe of some of the greats who hosted the show. To be asked to follow in the footsteps of Johnny Carson, Billy Crystal, Ellen DeGeneres, and everyone else who had the great fortune of hosting is a bucket list dream come true," he said in a statement to ABC.


Harris has dominated the small screen, the big screen, and even things without screens like the stage and books. He has previously hosted the Tony Awards and the Emmy Awards.
