I saw someone complaining on Twitter the other day about Neil Patrick Harris hosting the Tony Awards again this year and my immediate response was: “Shut up.” Nobody bashes the NPH, people. Let’s just be clear about that upfront. But my much more rational and thought-out response to that complaint was: “Seriously, shut up.”
Harris has been absolutely wonderful in his previous hosting gigs at the Tony Awards and that’s why it’s ridiculous that he hasn’t been offered a giant bag full of gold to host every awards show. Seriously, would anyone be against that? If you said, “Yes” to that hypothetical question, then I implore you to watch his opening performance from tonight’s Tony Awards show at Radio City Music Hall.
Watch it right now. I’ll wait.
Again, let’s have Harris host the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, ESPYs and even the AVN Awards. And Mike Tyson has to make appearances at all of them, too. UPDATE: Neil Patrick Harris’s ‘Empire State Of Mind’ Tony Awards Closing Number Did Not Disappoint
