"Tonight we honor Hollywood's best and whitest -- sorry brightest." With that joke, host Neil Patrick Harris opened the Oscars. Then, just a split-second later, fans were treated to the first (?) musical number of the night, "Moving Pictures." With NPH as your host, did people really expect anything else?
"I know the camera's on and were behaving our best, but secretly I hope someone pulls a Kanye West," Harris sang to laughs in a number that highlighted films from all the Academy's history, from current films nominated tonight like American Sniper to Back to the Future.
