Variety is reporting that Neil Patrick Harris is thisclose to hosting the Emmy Awards. Not only will I record the show if he ends up hosting, but I might have to drag my butt out of the basement and actually attend the show. I don't want to miss him hosting. I could kick myself for missing him host the Writers Guild Awards. They weren't on television but I have heard repeatedly how great he was at it. I didn't watch the Tony Awards so someone can probably share how good he was at that, and he was great hosting the TV Land Awards. But this is the Emmy's. This is the big time. It is so big time that 5 reality show hosts were in charge last year. You remember that don't you? Probably the worst idea in the history of hosting. This is probably one of the best.
So, I think we are agreed. Hugh Jackman or Jon Stewart for the Academy Awards every year and Neil Patrick Harris or Ellen for the Emmy Awards. Done and done. I feel good that we accomplished something today. I think we should tackle the economy next.
