Neil Patrick Harris is painted in gold for the new cover of EW. On Feb. 22, NPH will host the Oscars for the very first time. He’s already hosted the Tony Awards and the Emmy Awards to rave reviews over the years.

NPH told EW on the movies that changed his life: “My interest in musicals started with Annie, I guess that spoke to small-town me and wanting to maybe someday get to the big city and do something bigger. I wasn’t an orphan, thankfully. But I loved that that small story turned into a much larger adventure.”

I’m definitely looking forward to the Academy Awards ceremonies in two weeks. I think Neil Patrick Harris is going to be amazing!

NPH appears on the cover of Entertainment Weekly for February 20, 2015.
