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.

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.

"I don't know that my family nor my soul could take it," the 'How I Met Your Mother' alum told the site. "It's a beast. It was fun to check off the list, but for the amount of time spent and the understandable opinionated response, I don't know that it's a delightful balance to do every year or even again."

Harris also confessed to looking at the response of his performance online, but he did not stay on for too long.

"I didn't keep up with it obsessively, but it was interesting to see just what people thought landed and didn't," he said. "It's so difficult for one who's simply watching the show to realize just how much time and concession and compromise and explanation has gone into almost every single thing. Every joke. Wording of joke. Placement of joke. Cancelling of joke. Embellishment for just one line. And I'm not saying that to defend everything I said as if it was the absolute best choice, but it's also an award show, and you're powering through 14 acts filled with 20 plus awards. So my job was to try and keep things as light and specific to this year's set of films as possible. And if people are critical of that, it's a big giant platform, so I would assume that they would be."

Even though the majority thought Harris wasn't as good as they'd hoped, the Tony winner thought he wasn't too bad.

"I was glad we got through it, and I thought that those in the audience at the Dolby [Theatre] seemed to be enjoying themselves more as the show went on, when I was told that the opposite would be true," he explained. "I was told that as the room fills, with you know it's four-fifths of the room didn't win, and you get further into the award giving they get less enthusiastic and less excited. And I felt while we were doing it that people were enjoying themselves more and more, so for that I'm happy."
