Neil Patrick Harris hopes for Oscars interruption

Oscars host Neil Patrick Harris is hoping for a Kanye West-style interruption during the revered awards ceremony on Sunday (22Feb15).

The How I Met Your Mother star is presenting the 87th Academy Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California and is hoping the show will be as dramatic as possible.


He referenced West storming the stage at the recent Grammy Awards to protest against Beck winning Best Album, and insists he would be overjoyed if anyone tried to sabotage the Oscars.


Harris tells Associated Press, "Nothing would make me happier than something as random as that, as Kanye West deciding to participate in the show in some way. That's why you want to watch the Oscars. We hope for things to happen that you'll only experience by watching it... The crazier the better, as far as I'm concerned."
