Neil Patrick Harris proved yet again last night why he is the “Host with the Most” and should be used for all awards ceremonies!
He did a great job of moving the awards along and mixing in some stand up pieces, with skits and the ‘number in the middle of the show’.
He wasn’t afraid to poke fun at himself (see Excessive Hosting Disorder skit), let others shine (see Tina Fey and Amy Poehler once again steal the show with their heckling during the opening monologue. Actually if Neil doesn’t want to host the Emmy’s next year then these two should! That said, they have been invited back to host the 2013 Golden Globes and they were going to talk about it last night. Hope they have decided to give it another go – they are comedy gold!), and throw in a musical number.
Here are some of his best bits:
The Number in the Middle of the Show
Some people have said that these bits should be dropped because the awards ceremony goes on forever. However, something is needed to break up the ceremony and these were short and sweet. What should be looked at are the number of commercials – I understand the networks need to make money but the amount shown last night was out of control!
That said, I enjoyed last night’s show and can’t wait for next year and all the great TV in between – oh and I hope for more of Neil!
I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents!
As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen!
This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
