Neil Patrick Harris 87th Oscars billboard and more...

Neil Patrick Harris 87th Oscars billboard
Let's face it, the annual Academy Awards ceremony can be hit or miss affair depending on who's hosting them.

This year How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris emcees the prestigious awards to end all Hollywood awards and we can probably expect some singing, dancing and maybe a dash of magic on the Oscar stage from someone who has already dazzled at two Emmy and four Tony Award broadcasts.

The recent Broadway sensation of Hedwig and the Angry Inch was spied looking dapper with his friend Oscar high over Hollywood & Highland on February 12, 2015, where you'll find The Dolby Theatre that hosts the glittering annual motion picture awards today.
Ellen DeGeneres 86th Oscars billboard
Flashing back to last year and Ellen DeGeneres was on hosting duties and this golden billboard featuring the daytime talk show host was snapped on February 24, 2014.

Ellen brought her own unique flavour to the live broadcast twelve months ago and broke the internet when she tweeted her celebrity-filled selfie.

Daily Billboard wonders if Neil Patrick Harris will be able to pull something out of his magician's hat equally as memorable this year, but at least there's a pattern forming of the Oscars being hosted by funny and openly gay talent.

Hopefully his stint won't be as disastrous as James Franco and Anne Hathaway's painful co-hosting of the 83rd Academy Awards, where the statuette was the star of the billboard (and probably would have done a far better job in front of the camera on the night) and was snapped on February 11, 2011 in the same Hollywood location.

If you like these outdoor ads, be sure to also check out the 82nd Academy Awards billboard featuring that year's hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin from February 22, 2010.

You can also take a look at all the Oscar movie contender billboards filling the skies of L.A. in the run up to this special evening.

Break a leg Neil and do Oscar (and David and the kids) proud.
