Neil Patrick Harris might use his job as Oscar host as a way to meet his favorite stars. “I have, essentially, an all-access pass to the theater,” Harris said during a recent Associated Press interview. “So I love being able to stand there and say hello to people I’ve never met before. I’m very easily star struck, so it’ll be very exciting to shake hands with celebrities.” Harris has hosted the Emmys twice and the Tony Awards four times — and has won both awards. On Sunday, he takes on his first Oscar show.
