Neil Patrick Harris doesn't know if his 'family or soul' could handle hosting Oscars again

March 5, 2015 Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris' Oscar experience was not a smooth one like his character Barney in How I Met Your Mother. So, it's quite understandable when he says he is circumspect about hosting it again, ever.

Talking to The Huffington Post, he said, "I don’t know that my family nor my soul could take it. 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."

The actor also admitted that he had checked the feedback - which was largely mixed - and chose not to linger on it 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, before somewhat defending himself. “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."

The actor also added he was trying to keep it light and specific this year and people are allowed to be critical about it. However he was happy with the final result.

“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.”
