Neil hosted the 65th annual Emmy Awards on Sept. 22 at the Nokia Theatre and he showed off his talent and wit all night long. It’s no wonder this was his second time to land the gig!
Neil Patrick Harris was the perfect Emmys host! The How I Met Your Mother star, took the stage on Sept. 22 and opened the show by bringing back former hosts like Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O’Brien and Jane Lynch. Neil was his usual charming self and even though he didn’t kick off the night with a dance number, he managed to captivate everyone with hilarious jokes and references to the past year of television.
Neil Patrick Haris Hosts Emmys & Does A Great Job
Neil, who has hosted the past five Tony Awards, and the Emmys in 2009, did a fabulous job when he hosted the 2013 Emmy Awards. Not only did he amuse everyone with his hilarious bit in the beginning about how teens watch “that thing called TV” on their phones, but he managed to get viewers at home excited about what was to come!
Also, Neil did a great job dancing during the number with Sarah Silverman and it was SO funny! He not only proved why he’s such a great host but really helped pick up the pace of the show. It was so awesome listening to them joke about how long the show is by singing about how it’s three hours long!
The night went seamlessly and that is mainly because Neil was such a calm, cool and collected host. It’s so nice to have such a talented, humble and funny guy take the stage on such an important night.
Neil Loves Hosting But Loves Being A Dad Even More
When the actor isn’t starring on a hit show, he is the father of twins, Gideon and Harper. He spoke about being a dad to Oprah Winfrey in June of 2012, and it was so cute to hear what he said!
“I think the way they were brought into this world was very unique and weirdly scientific, and the technology involved in it, I think, is remarkable,” he said. “But it came because we really, really wanted kids. Like we really had thought it through financially, emotionally, relationship-wise. Like we didn’t just accidentally get pregnant and decide that now we need to make this work. These kids came into our world with nothing but love.”
This is just so sweet and makes me love him even more! HollywoodLifers, sound off below and tell us what you thought of Neil hosting the the Emmys!
