Due to the harsh and critical response from fans, the 41-year-old actor recently confessed that it is unlikely he will host the Academy Awards for a second time.
On Sunday, February 22nd, Neil Patrick Harris took on the daunting task of hosting the 87TH annual Academy Awards, at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, but when Oscars came to a close, the 41-year-old actor wasn't given the best reviews.
Neil Patrick Harris won't host the Oscars again
So will he try to redeem himself next year? Well when Harris recently spoke with The Huffington Post, he revealed that hosting the prestigious award ceremony for a second time will be very unlikely because he cannot handle the harsh criticisms once again.
The 'Boyhood' actress used her acceptance speech to call for wage equality and equal rights for women, but her comments have split opinions.
Patricia Arquette’s Oscars acceptance speech has set the world of social media alight in the last twenty four hours. After she used her time at the microphone to call for wage equality and equal rights for women, opinion has been polarised as to validity of her argument.
The 46 year old won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Olivia Evans in Boyhood. Having produced a sheet of paper and thanked her family and fellow cast members, she went on to deliver a rousing finale: “It's our time to have wage equality once and for all, and equal rights for women in the United States of America.”

This year it was Menzel's turn to pronounce Travolta's name incorrectly, in a humorous acknowledgment of his "Adele Dazeem" mistake last year.
Idina Menzel got her revenge on John Travolta at this year’s Oscars, twelve months after he pronounced her name totally incorrectly at last year’s ceremony. Speaking to the audience before they presented the trophy for Best Original Song together, she said “please welcome to the stage my very dear friend Glom Gazingo.”
One year ago, 60 year old Travolta caused one of the #epicfail moments of the evening after he introduced the Frozen singer to the stage as “Adele Dazeem”. Taking to the podium this time, the actor embraced her and said “I deserve that, but you, my darling, my beautiful, my wickedly talented Idina Menzel.”

Host Neil Patrick Harris seems to be shouldering the blame for the worst Oscars viewing figures since 2009.
This year’s Academy Awards was the least watched in six years, according to preliminary viewing figures. USA Today reported that initial Nielsen estimates put the 87th Awards stats at 36.6 million viewers, the lowest since 2009.
Sunday’s ceremony, hosted by actor Neil Patrick Harris and dominated by Birdman, was a pretty steep 16% drop on last year’s awards when 12 Years a Slave won Best Picture. Ellen Degeneres hosted that one and, powered by a memorable selfie which was then re-tweeted around the world, it had 43.7 million viewers.

The bomb scare proved to be a false alarm.
A bomb scare near the venue for The Oscars ceremony on Sunday (February 22) proved to be a false alarm though a man was detained by police.

“I skew kinder. I want to keep it a classy show,” said Harris to USA Today. “It's a night of celebration. All of these people worked so hard all year long, all career long to attend this night. To make jokes at them, that's just not my style.”

The horror 'Annabelle' has made $2 million more than 'Gone Girl' at the Box Office on their opening days (Friday 3rd October).
Annabelle has pipped Gone Girl to the top of the Friday Box Office. Both films opened on Friday (3rd October) but it's come as a surprise for commentators that the horror surpassed the acclaimed thriller.
Ben Affleck stars in Gone Girl.
Those who have read the blockbuster novel may be disappointed to know that author Gillian Flynn hasn't changed anything in adapting it to the big screen, so there aren't any surprises along the way. But they'll be glad to see the story so faithfully and skilfully adapted, with snaky direction from David Fincher and actors who add layers of new meaning to the characters. And non-readers are in for a thrillingly twisty experience as a mysterious conundrum shifts into a full-on thriller and then something much more intensely personal.
When Nick (Ben Affleck) discovers that his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) is missing on their fifth wedding anniversary, he has no idea what has happened. As recounted in Amy's journal, their marriage has been a whirlwind of sexy highs and dark lows, as both writers lost their jobs in New York and moved to rural Missouri to take care of Nick's terminally ill mother. As a result, their marriage ran aground, and Nick increasingly turned to his twin sister Margot (Carrie Coon) for support. As two police officers (Kim Dickens and Patrick Fugit) investigate Amy's disappearance, the media circus begins to paint Nick as a villain, led by rabid tabloid-TV host Ellen Abbott (Missi Pyle). So while he suspects Amy's stalker-like ex (Neil Patrick Harris), Nick has little choice but hire a high-powered lawyer (Tyler Perry) to defend himself.
Even at nearly two and a half hours, this film races along breathlessly as events and revelations continually shift the perspective. It's clear from the start that neither Nick nor Amy (in diary-entry flashbacks) are particularly reliable narrators. Both are a bundle of secrets, although Nick remains far more sympathetic. Affleck gives one of his most textured performances in years as a nice guy who struggles to look "nice" for the cameras. His isolation and confusion are hugely involving, which contrasts strongly to Amy's far too confident point of view. Pike manages to bring out the peeling onion of Amy's personality beautifully, offering telling glimpses of the real woman beneath the characters she seems to always be playing. And the supporting cast add details that twist their roles as well. Dickens and Fugit are a terrific double act, while Coon and Harris constantly offer surprising hints about their characters beneath the bravado and concern.

The British actress is earning rave reviews for her role as Amy in David Fincher’s thriller.
Rosamund Pike could be a serious contender at next year’s Oscars, thanks to her star making turn opposite Ben Affleck in Gone Girl. In the film, which hits cinemas on Friday (October 3rd), Pike plays Amy Dunne, the wife of Affleck who mysteriously goes missing on the couple’s fifth wedding anniversary.
Rosamund Pike attends the Gone Girl world premiere
While David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel has generally been impressing the critics, it’s the performance of the 35 year old British actress which has really stood out. The former Bond girl has captivated the critics with her portrayal of Amy, while putting her name firmly in the running for an Academy Award nomination.

Warning! Warning! Warning! Major spoiler alert.
It’s no secret that fans of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ weren't exactly overjoyed at how the series ended. After following the love life of Ted Moseby for nine years viewers, couldn’t help but feel a little cheated when it was revealed that the ‘mother’ had already died and Ted was about to end up with Robin again after all. But now a video claiming to be the 'alternative ending' to the series has leaked online, ahead of the release of 'How I Met Your Mother: The Whole Story, Seasons 1-9' DVD box set.
'How I Met Your Mother' ended earlier this year after nine seasons
Now, here’s another spoiler alert, in this ending Tracy (the mother) doesn't die from a terminal illness, instead she remains happily married to Ted, while Robin and Barney also stay together. This 'alternative' ending features no unseen footage, instead it just wraps things up in a much happier manner with narration provided by Bob Saget.
